To point or not to point, that’s the big question! Let’s talk about the Echo Dot and how it can turn an ordinary home into a smart home! While we’re not quite at Jetson’s level of innovation, we’re making progress.
While we can’t have a robot maid or waiter, we can have a robot vacuum cleaner (which is also on sale for Black Friday) and an Echo Dot.
This small device, shaped like a tee or a ball, can bring Alexa into your house.
We could spend days talking about everything the Dot can do, so let’s highlight the main features. It can automate things around your house. If you have a question, you can ask Alexa. Do you want to know the weather? Ask the point for an updated forecast.
For children, especially, you can turn the point into an intercom. You don’t have to yell anymore, because you can simply teleport the child from your point to the one in their room. It also adds a lot of fun, because you can play music all over the house.
So if you’ve been hesitating about taking the next step into the future of home automation, now is the time to take the plunge. Echo Dots are on sale for Black Friday.
