Looking to set up a smart home and don't want to spend too much? Then check this Echo Show 5 deal at Amazon, with the smart display on sale for only $45 for the 2021 model.NEXTPITTV
The smallest model in the Echo Show range, the 5-inch display has all the usual features like Alexa support, alarms, timers, news, video calls, and streaming support.
The Echo Show works as a hub for Alexa in your home, displaying the time, weather, news, scheduled tasks and events, and even playing back video and music content. With voice commands, you can do online searches, display family pictures, and especially control smart home devices such as light bulbs, locks, cameras, and doorbells.
The camera on the device can be used not only for video calls, but also as a trigger for actions (called Routines in Alexa) like turning on the lights when detecting movement. And as the Alexa ecosystem grows, the same happens with the possibilities with the Echo Show smart display.
Of course, if you don't like Amazon's ecosystem, or are deeply invested in either Google's or Apple HomeKit, you may need to adapt your home setup, which may not be feasible, depending on your current devices. But for everyone else looking for a smart display, or start building a smart home system, you can't go wrong with the Echo Show 5.
What do you think about today's deal suggestion? Are you using a smart display already? Or do you prefer using the phone or tablet for consuming video content and just the regular voice commands from Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant? Share your opinions and tips in the comments below!
