The Amazon Echo is a smart speaker that has a built in personal assistant, Alexa, which can do everything from tell you the traffic in the morning, or start your favorite playlist.
Alexa is also one of the best ways to control your smart home products as you can simply say, “Alexa, lock the front door.”, or “Alexa, Turn on living room lights.” Because the Amazon Echo is so easy to use, it is the first smart home appliance for many. It’s also compatible with an amazing amount of smart home products, making it an essential part of any modern home.
We’ve put together a few recommended bundles to get you started, and also have a full list of our recommended products by category. If you have an Amazon Echo, stick to this list, and your smart home will be super easy.
Whether you’re just starting, or are looking to build out your smart home in another area, we recommend you consider the following bundles. We’ve purposefully designed these with what we’ve seen readers recommend.
August Door Security Bundle
Security and package theft are the main drivers for most people in adopting smart home products, and the front door is your primary defense. Having the following products from August will allow you to check the status of your door lock, see visitors on your doorstep, and control access to guests without ever handing out a physical key.
Basic Smart Home Bundle
When starting your very own smart home, you need to have the solid smart home staples. We recommend some of the most popular products that meet your basic needs. The Ecobee smart thermostat can learn your habits and maximize energy savings. The Garagio allows you to control your garage door from anywhere in the world. And the Securifi Almond give you a smart router that pulls it all in together.
Everything Nest Bundle
Google Nest has come up with a well rounded suite of products that are as useful as they are simple to install. The Nest thermostat is popular as it learns your habits and can reduce your energy bill. The Nest smoke and carbon monoxide detector give you phone alerts in case of an emergency, and the Nest Cam security camera allows you to check on the safety of your home from anywhere in the world.
