It’s very easy to acquire multiple smart home devices between smart speakers, security cameras, robot vacuums, etc. Sometimes a hub is required to control them all together, and that adds yet another device. But with the Amazon Echo Plus, it’s not only a smart speaker but also a hub. And if you buy now, you can enjoy a discount of more than 50 percent and a free Philips Hub bulb.
The Echo Plus (2nd gen) has the same great sound as the Echo (3rd gen). Along with that premium sound, you can personalize your listening experience with the equalizer settings. You can also pair it with a second Echo Plus or an Echo for stereo sound. You can add more bass with an Echo Sub. The built-in Alexa allows you to request a song, artist, or genre from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM, and more.
In addition to that, the Amazon Echo Plus features a built-in Zigbee hub to allow you to easily set up and control your compatible smart home devices. Alexa allows you voice control to turn on lights, adjust the thermostat, lock your doors, and more. You’re only limited by which compatible devices you choose to add.
When you have multiple Alexa devices, it allows you to use them as an intercom when you have messages for others in your home. You can use Alexa options like Drop In and Announcements in this manner. You’ll still have your privacy, however, as a button is included on the Echo Plus to turn the microphones off.
Save $99.99 if you choose to get the free Philips Hue bulb or save $70 if you choose not to. Either way, you’re only paying $79.99 on this deal.
