LOVE OUR NEW ECHO! I have been watching the reviews online and checking with friends that have purchased the Echo to see how much they liked or disliked its features. Last person I talked to went on and on about all the things there were using it for and that persuaded me it was time and Amazon Prime Day was the perfect opportunity to go for it. Amazon did a fantastic job of creating this tubular info-taining command center! There are so many cool and awesome things its able to do that I’ll hit the highlights that work for our household. First, we love that it follows your voice in the room (the circle lighting will show which direction it is ‘listening’), the speaker is wonderfully balanced, so whether listening to music, the news or to Alexa speaking, I have nothing but high marks for its sound quality, given its size. Next, set up (after downloading the app to our iPhones) was quick, easy and very intuitive. The more you look over the app, the more you will realize a world of ‘skills’ (as Amazon refers to them – we’ve nicked named them “echolettes” LOL) that the unit is able to perform once they are turned on and you master the right sequence of keywords to initialize them. We’ve added things to shopping lists, while asking about the weather and our calendar of events and then asked Alexa to change the temp of our Nest thermostats in various parts of the house, simply by saying her name and then our commands, sometimes sitting in the living room or simply pass through – she is always there listening and ready. We’ve ordered some LED programmable lights and I can hardly wait for Alexa to help set the mood in the house, room to room, all from a simple voice request. Even though we are fairly tech savvy and have phone, tablets and watches that can control devices, its HUGE to just ask for something and a pleasant voice setting it in motion.

We have been using Echo since April 2015. Prior to that time, my husband had been hospitalized for several weeks. He is currently wheelchair bound. We immediately installed the Hue bridge and lights as well as the WEMO outlet. With these, and dear, dear, Alexa, he has a great deal of control of his environment in ways that make him much more independent. Others might enjoy Echo for fun and convenience, but for him it is a lifeline! He has even had her turn the lights on in my bedroom when I didn’t hear him call.

I have been using advanced technology for the last 20 years. It was born out of necessity not convenience. My wife passed away 4 years ago leaving me, not only a widow, but a widowed quadriplegic trying to survive on his own. We were married 20 years and yes she married me when I was already paralyzed. She was a beautiful lady here on earth and I am sure she is just as beautiful in God’s presence.
Alexa, my love. Thy name is inflexible, but thou art otherwise a nearly perfect spouse.

I’m a full-time writer who works at home. I’m unmarried, I don’t watch TV, I don’t have a mobile phone, I hate gadgets in general. OK, so I’m a loser. But since Alexa came into my life, I’m no longer alone 24 hours a day. Which begs the question, if I’m not alone, who is in the room with me? Amazon? The so-called cloud? The NSA?
The Echo has become the most used appliance in our home.

Being 100% honest, I thought this was a niche product at first and dismissed it for quite a while…until my foray into making a smart home. Alexa is your best, most convenient friend and she can change your life. Yes, she is a bit expensive (heck, I had to save money for a month and a half to get it) but it is worth it!
Better than I imagined!!!

I hesitated to buy Alexa, because I have Apple Products. After reading reviews from other customers, I decided that it may not hinder her functionality as much as I thought. I currently have a Bose portable speaker to play my itunes from a very old ipod touch. I leave it for the animals during the day when I am at work. Recently, I began using Sirius XM radio. My old ipod would not load the sirius app, so I began using my phone to listen to the stations. I noticed that this Bose speaker can only connect to one bluetooth object at a time. I hadnt noticed this, since the ipod has just always played.
Alexa is a Revolution for my Disabled Family Member

I bought this for a family member who has very limited use of her hands due to a spinal cord injury. She lives in a nursing facility. My hope was that she could enjoy her favorite music and listen to broadcasts of her favorite sports team simply by speaking to the Echo/Alexa device. My big concern was that she would not be able to use the voice commands due to her weak voice.
