What is Amazon Echo Dot?

Amazon Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker—it can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through a 3.5 mm audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose. Echo Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more. Prime members can also ask Alexa to order eligible products they've ordered before and many Prime products. All you have to do is ask.

Echo Dot can hear you from across the room—even in noisy environments or while playing music. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Echo Dot responds. If you have more than one Echo or Echo Dot, Alexa responds intelligently from the device you're closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception). Learn more about ESP

I've been living with Alexa for a couple of weeks now and thought it about time I shared my experience.

I bought the Dot along with the Netatmo Thermostat for a discount price in the Black Friday sales, and this has spiralled into a whirlwind of home automation products.

From the Smart home perspective the echo / dot really just create a voice interface to enable you to link in to your smart appliances. It is very convenient to ask alexa to put the kettle on when you're in front of the TV and you know the adverts are coming on, but she can't make the Tea for you yet. It works very well at completeing multiple tasks with a simple command as well. There are currently fewer integrations in the UK than in the US but more skills are appearing day by day.

As a standalone product with no smart home equipment Alexa is still a very usable device. She will answer questions, stream music, create shopping and to do lists, keep track of your diary, give you the news and weather, and you still won't have scratched the surface. Of course all of this is reliant on a stable wifi connection, I haven't had any problems with dropouts but I know that others have reported intermittent problems but this could be down to their internet provider so not necesarily the fault of the echo.

The voice recognition is very good, placement of the product is critical. Amazon recommend that the dot is placed at least 8 inches from any walls on a flat surface. This should also be worded to include away from other objects such as ornaments etc by the same distance. The top of the device has 7 microphones in a ring which it uses to listen to you. If you place it near to another object you will confuse it as the sensitive microphones pick up the inaudible echos you can't hear.

I'm not quite sure where to start with a review on Alexa as there really is so much to say so, please excuse me if my review seems a little disjointed as it's hard not to waffle when it comes to what she can and can't do. Ok, I suppose, to start, I ought to explain that what with buying for other people and receiving presents ourselves, the household ended up with two Amazon Dots and one full sized Amazon Echo. Now, obviously this review is for the dot but it's going to be almost impossible not to compare the two so again, please forgive me if that's not what you want to read but I do think a comparison, albeit brief, is important if you're not sure which one to buy.

Right, first things first, the dot arrived the day after ordering, packaged neatly in a typical Amazon rip cord cardboard envelope and inside that you find the Dot product box. Once you break the seal on that you are presented with Alexa in all of her glory along with the mains cable and a couple of small brochures that include your warranty guide, a brief set up guide for getting started and a card with a few suggestions for things to ask Alexa just to give you an idea of what she can do. I won't deny, I was seriously relieved at this as if there's one thing I detest it's when you buy an electrical product and find you have something akin to the size of a phone book to read just to get it switched on so brief, concise instructions was a blessing as far as I was concerned! It didn't take long to realise that the reason they can get away with such a small set of directions is because Alexa takes very little effort to get up and running. It was a case of downloading the free app on my phone, then connecting her to the bluetooth (i.e. pairing) and plugging in my wifi password.

I have been eagerly awaiting the Amazon Echo Dot 2 release and it has lived upto my expectations.

The main reason for buying the dot is that we have British Gas Hive heating and also Hive light bulbs throughout the house. Now that the Dot has been released I can now control my heating and lights by voice.

I decided to go with the smaller dot as this one is in the living room where I have a Samsung Bluetooth soundbar and subwoofer which I can connect to my new Dot if required by simply asking the Dot to connect to connect to our Bluetooth soundbar.

The quality of the inbuilt speaker in the Dot is not bad for the size of the device and is loud and can be heard clearly from other rooms.

The Dot truly is wonderful and is so simple to setup and use. When music is playing from the device I can still say the keyword and she picks me up over the playing music. I have also tested the Dot from my Kitchen, Hallway and also our furthest away bedroom and she can pickup my voice and understands me nearly every time.

If you have a good home Bluetooth speaker system that you will be connecting this too then buy this version and not the dearer £149 Echo.That's really the only difference between the two (better inbuilt speaker) so save your money and buy this Dot if you have your own home sound system.

I have attached a video that I took showing the Dot working in our house.

All I can say is if you have a smart heating system, wireless plugs or hive/hue lights then go the full hog and control them with your voice!

Check out my video that I took with the Amazon Echo Dot in action.
