Amazon is fresh off the press of releasing it’s brand new Echo Show to the world. A step up from the standing, always-on Echo, the Show includes a screen for navigation and Facetime-style video calling. If you’re going to be picking up a brand new Echo Show, you’ll get the most value out of it if you are able to use Alexa to control various products and utilities around the house. These are the best connected products you can buy that can be used with your Amazon Echo Show, to make sure you can talk to almost every aspect of your connected home.
#1 Philips Hue Lighting
The Philips Hue lighting system is one of the most established connected product out on the market, and for good reason. These are essentially internet-connected light bulbs. Go from white lights, to a million different colour variants within seconds from your smartphone… or Alexa.
That’s right, with the hue you can control your lighting in any room simply by asking Alexa. More expensive than traditional lightbulbs, if you can stomach the cost to fill your apartment with them, it’s a pretty damn cool investment. Forget clappers, this is the future.
