Alexa is a voice-control intelligent personal assistant developed by Amazon. It first comes in the Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Dot device. It allows you to speak your wishes to an Alexa smart home device and see them fulfilled, as simple as asking a question — like dimming the lights, playing music tracks, reading the news, placing an order and checking the weather, etc.
So you finally have the Alexa — the smartest AI speaker to have ever appeared on a Christmas shopping list. With it, you now have plenty of possibilities for smart controlling your home and make your life easier by just voice controlling your world. Alexa is available on a growing number of devices. Let’s look the following 6 smart home gadgets in details.
Looking to keep your house tidier but don’t want to increase the time you spend with a broom? Here’s your solution. The Alfawise X5 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner works perfectly with Alexa and is an efficient and, what’s most important, independent cleaning gadget.
Equipped with two main cleaning brushes and featuring 1000pa powerful suction, the vacuum cleaner quickly picks up dirt, dust, debris, hair and other allergens. Coming with a 600ml dustbin and a 600ml water tank, the vacuum has enough capacity for optional mopping and drying stages to remove even the most stubborn dirt. Featuring advanced anti-collision sensors, this robot can detect objects in its path and navigate around them to achieve uninterrupted cleaning. Plus, you get the anti-drop sensors meaning that the robot can clean even around stairs without falling. With four cleaning modes — zigzag, edge mode, spot cleaning and auto cleaning, you will be able to adjust the mopping to the requirements of your home.
The best part is easy control: the vacuum quickly responds to voice commands — and you also have app control for scheduling and monitoring the cleaning process.
The MXQ HF10 is a an Android TV box — but thanks to Alexa compatibility, it is practically and all-in-one smart entertainment center.
A high performance of Quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU gives you enough power to watch all your favorite movies and enough juice to indulge in some serious gameplay. 1G RAM + 8G ROM combo makes sure you have enough storage for your media and enough memory for efficient multitasking. Android 6.0 offers all the benefits of using all the latest updates and having access to all the tools, games, and apps from the Play Store. Oh, and have we forgotten to mention the beautiful 4K quality? HDMI 2.0 provides faster communication with your TV and the H.265 decoding helps you save 50 percent of bandwidth resource.
Thanks to Alexa compatibility, you can easily control the TV box with the smart speaker — plus, the TV box itself is equipped with a mic for voice control.
Smart lighting is one of the most entertaining aspects of a smart home — especially if you are the proud owner of the Jiawen Smart LED Bulb.
The light bulb offers a myriad of colors, brightness control and a number of dynamic lighting effects. You can also set up a variety of lighting scenes and play around with creating different "ambiances" for your home: romantic reds, party pinks, working whites or cozy yellows and set them to activate at specific times. App control is very easy as you have a convenient interface at your fingertips with large icons and an easy-to-navigate menu.
As all the gadgets in this list, you can control the smart bulb with Alexa. Simply voice your preference and the light bulb will instantly follow your prompts.
Humidifier and aromatherapy gadgets come in right after lighting when it comes to creating the perfect ambiance. The Smart Ultrasonic Oil Diffuser will make sure you are breathing fresh healthy air and inhaling aromatic herbs and flower blends as you do.
Thanks to the 30ml capacity, the smart humidifier offers you up to 10 hours of continuous mist output — so you won’t have to worry about restarting the humidifier every hour or so, it will last you the whole day. With the ultra-quiet design, the Oittm won’t cause you any disturbance and you can easily leave it working overnight — a great way to renew stress, drive away fatigue and help with insomnia. Time setting function enables you to set the dense mist spray to 1h / 3h / 6h, and ON mode for all day or all night. It also serves as a LED night light with adjustable colors.
App remote control makes everything so much easier, especially when you count in Alexa: simply speak out to turn the humidifier on and off with your Amazon Echo / Tap / Dot.
Not all things about a smart home are fun — and yes, you may not be as excited about hooking up a smart strip socket as you would be about installing a home theater. But a seemingly boring thing like a smart socket can open up doors to lots of exciting functionality for all the gadgets and home appliances in your home.
Any appliance you plug into the socket, can be conveniently controlled via an app — even when you are not at home. Forget about restless days at the office wondering if you’ve turned off the coffee maker — with a smart power socket you can do that anytime, anywhere. Plus, there are many more ways of making your life more convenient: turn on the air conditioner before you get home to walk into the perfect temperature, open and close the blinds remotely, turn lights on and off and more.
Amazon Alexa compatibility takes the convenience of remote control to a whole new level with voice commands.
A smart home is an easy home. And a smart WiFi switch puts all the appliances in your home under the control on one app — which is, as you can imagine, is incredibly convenient.
With the WiFi switch, you can set up your devices to be controlled over WiFi, 4G mobile network or a manual control button. Managing your devices over WiFi instantly rids you of the distance problem — so you can turn them on and off over a smartphone or via voice commands with Alexa. A great feature about this particular WiFi switch is it can give you the real-time feedback of the working state of your home appliances and, thus, keep your home and family safe and prevent electrical accidents. Just like the smart strip socket, the wireless switch is a quick, easy, efficient and very affordable way to make all the appliances in your home smart and a great way to get started with the smart home experiment.
