"Easy Does It" Smart Home Kit - Amazon Echo Plus with Philips Hue Bulb
Echo Plus is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice, with a built-in smart home hub. It connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, answer questions, make calls, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more— just ask.
Echo Plus has 360° room-filling sound, and can hear you from across the room from any direction. It is always getting smarter as Alexa continues to add additional features. With a built-in smart hub and simple setup for compatible connected devices, starting your smart home or integrating into your existing system is now easier than ever.
The simple way to start your smart home
With a built-in smart home hub, Echo Plus makes connecting to compatible smart devices easier than ever. Just ask, “Alexa, discover my devices”, and Echo Plus will discover and set up compatible smart lights and more without the need for additional hubs, apps or set up.
Turn on the lamp before getting out of bed or switch on the kettle in the morning without lifting a finger. Simple setup works with a variety of Zigbee lights, plugs and more from leading brands like Philips Hue.
Voice control your music
With a 2.5” down-firing woofer and .8” tweeter powered by Dolby, Echo Plus has crisp highs, deep bass, and 360° audio to fill your room with music. Play from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more (certain services may require separate subscriptions or other fees). You can also listen to podcasts, radio stations, news briefs, and more.
Hands-free calling and messaging
With Amazon Echo, you can easily talk hands-free to anyone who has a supported Echo device or the Alexa App— no tapping or searching required. Additionally, you can send messages via voice or text to anyone with an Echo device or the Alexa App. To get started, download the latest version of the Alexa App on a smart phone with iOS 9.0 or higher, or Android 5.0 or higher, and verify your mobile number.
With the Drop In feature enabled for room-to-room calling, quickly connect with Echo devices in your home. Let your household know when dinner is ready, ask someone for help with a chore or remind the kids to go to sleep—without having to raise your voice.
Far-field voice recognition
Tucked under the light ring is an array of seven microphones that use beam-forming technology and enhanced noise cancellation. The 2nd generation Echo has improved wake-word performance to hear you ask a question from any direction—even in noisy environments or while playing music at loud volumes.
When you want to use Echo, simply say the wake word, “Alexa,” and Echo lights up and connects to the cloud, where the Alexa Voice Service recognizes and responds to your request.
Echo Plus has skills
Amazon Echo has thousands of skills and counting. Skills add even more capabilities such as checking surf conditions with Coastalwatch, requesting a ride from Uber, discovering recipes with Taste.com.au and more. To enable new skills, just ask Alexa.
New skills are being added all the time. You can see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about the thousands of skills available in the Alexa App.
Always getting smarter
Alexa- the brain behind Amazon Echo- updates through the cloud automatically and is continually learning, adding new functionality and skills. The more you use Echo, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary and personal preferences.
