The versatile Echo Dot is a small and unobtrusive way to automate smart home commands, interact with Alexa, listen to music, and more. It’s compact enough to stay out of the way, but loud enough to make it a viable audio hub for smaller homes.
With the smart color bulb, you can add some fun lighting to your home for the holidays. It has a brightness of 800 lumens, and you can control it via the Echo Dot. Turn its brightness and color up and down, adjust its rainbow of colors, and have a light show in your own home.
Grab multiple bulbs for a festive holiday scene that you can use your Echo Dot to control without having to use individual light switches. Create a custom lighting schedule that turns on and off automatically, or set the mood with your favorite music and color scenes.
Whatever mood you decide to set at home, you can do it cheaply and effectively with this smart speaker, and for less than the price of takeout.
