We have talked many times about my love for all things smart home! I love being able to ask Alexa questions without having to type on my phone or laptop. Best Buy sent over the Alexa Echo Spot and it is the perfect addition to our smart home technology.
John set the Echo Spot up on our kitchen counter but little does he know that it is moving to my desk as soon as I am home from Uganda. I love the idea of being able to ask Alexa questions from my desk and seeing the answers.
I can get weather reports, news updates, pretty pictures and so much more just by asking Alexa to show them to me.
Just ask and Alexa will provide you with the necessary information, answer questions, play music, or show lyrics and more. Amazon Echo Spot allows you to make hands free calls and send voice messages to family and friends. Just ask Alexa to call or message anyone with an Echo, Echo Dot, or the Alexa App.
- Echo Spot

Everything you need comes in the box! All you have to do is sign into your Amazon account and the Echo Spot will sync with all of your information.
You can even track your orders, look for family photos or info you have saved to Amazon.
Compatible with smart home connected devices, including starter kits for easy setup from brands such as Ring, WeMo, Philips Hue, SmartThings, ecobee, Wink, and others.
One of my favorite Alexa tools to use while traveling is to make a quick call or send a message to your family’s Echo. Alexa calling and messaging is free – 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.
This is one of my favorite ways to keep in contact with John while I am on the road and cell service is spotty or stupid expensive. From Uganda it would cost me $.25 a minute to call but is totally free using the Alexa app and wi-fi.
Have I mentioned how much I love technology and how it makes our worlds super connected.
