If you are a lover of the “smart home” and IoT (Internet of Things) ideology, here are 4 good reasons to start putting money aside.
Amazon has unveiled new Echo and a security camera that is an authentic mini drone. These new Echos arrive with the well-known Alexa and are ready to bring more intelligence (and beauty) to your home.
This is the new Amazon Echo
With a new circular design, Amazon has completely abandoned the vertical ideology of its former Echo. The new Echo features a 3-inch woofer and two tweeters inside for Dolby sound quality. In addition, we have a new design. More elegant, casual and with an LED on the bottom that gives a simply phenomenal touch.
This new Echo follows the ideology of the previous ones. That is, you can connect to Zigbee and other smart gadgets that are compatible with Alexa to have a smarter home.
Finally, this new Echo brings a new processor “AZ1 Neural Edge” built by MediaTek to give us feedback from Alexa much faster than its predecessors. Still, you need an internet connection for the gadget to work.
New Amazon Echo Dot
This new Echo Dot comes in 3 new versions. The design follows the same ideology as the new Echo. Still, it is slightly smaller and does not have as much sound quality as the “normal” model.
This Echo comes with the “normal” version, another version that shows us the hours, alarms or even weather information and, finally, a version aimed at children with a panda or a tiger in the main design.
In addition, the children’s version also comes with valuable features. For example, make emergency calls to pre-selected numbers and alarms with animal sounds.
This is the new Echo Show 10
This is one of the most impressive gadgets of the day. We have a giant column with a tablet attached. This tablet that changes direction through your presence. That is, if this gadget is in the kitchen and you are busy from side to side, Echo Show 10 has the ability to follow the sound of your voice with the 10 “inch screen.
The security camera that is a Mini drone
This is such an impressive gadget that it deserved an article for itself. The new Ring Always Home Drone Cam is a security camera that turns into a real drone when activated. You can navigate the house alone or you can control the drone using your smartphone.
