If you’re starting to fill your home up with smart home devices, you want to be sure to get a smart home hub to control all your helpful devices. With the Amazon Echo 4th Gen and Free Ring Smart Bulb deal, you’re getting a smart home hub and a free smart device to add to your setup. The Echo is both a hub and a smart speaker, and the Ring bulb will help light up your home while you control it via the Echo.
The Echo is first a smart speaker. It plays your music, podcasts, and audiobooks with highs, mids, and bass that will adapt to any room and fill your home with your favorite tunes when you synch it with your other Echos. It can also be paired with Fire TV devices to bring great audio to your bingeing. Use Alexa to stream music from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, SiriusXM, and radio.
Also use Alexa to answer your questions, check the weather, listen to the news, set alarms, control your smart home devices, etc. With this hub, you can drop in on your other Echo devices in other rooms to just check in or give a centralized message, such as announcing that dinner is ready. Yet, you can also turn off the mic whenever you’d like.
As a smart home hub, the Amazon Echo 4th Gen allows you to set up compatible Zigbee devices and other smart home devices, such as locks, sensors, and the free Ring smart bulb that it’s bundled with. The bulb replaces standard A19 light bulbs, both indoor and outdoor, and is the equivalent of a 60W bulb, carrying a lifespan of 25,000 hours. Use the Ring app to set schedules to turn the light on and off and more.
Get an Echo in Charcoal, Glacier White, or Twilight Blue and the free smart bulb for $79.99, the same price you’d pay for just the smart speaker itself. That’s a savings of $34.99.
