BroadLink RM4 Mini Smart Remote
Once we have a whole smart ecosystem in our home, it’s okay to start buying Alexa-enabled devices. However, it is absurd to replace devices that work well but are not intelligent.
The BroadLink RM4 is the perfect device for this transition period. It’s a remote that you can place in your living room or bedroom to control devices with your voice. The BroadLink is nothing more than a universal remote control associated with Alexa. Thanks to it, we can turn on a fan, a radiator, the air conditioner or even control an old TV with voice commands. Its price is quite affordable and it offers compatibility with practically any device, because in the worst case, you will be able to clone the frequencies of the original remote control that you already have at home.
What we talked about in the previous point is fine, but… what if my device doesn’t have a remote control? Is there a way to control it with Alexa? Well yes, there are.
The Amazon smart plug is a very simple device. It simply controls the flow of electric current. This way, you can pair it with Alexa with a name and turn your devices on and off using voice commands.
Usmart Smart Power Strip
If the smart plug fails, know that there are also smart power strips. This Usmart model has three outlets that can be independently controlled with Alexa, as well as three USB ports.
Netro Smart Sprinkler
The advantage of home automation is that it makes our lives easier. If you live surrounded by plants or have a house in the country and are desperate to have to go to the water, you will be happy to know that you no longer have to invest thousands and thousands of dollars in automatic irrigation systems.
The Netro Smart Sprinkler can be configured in different ways, and you can turn it on and off with Alexa. The system itself will know whether or not to turn on the water based on humidity and statistics. Properly set up, you can even use it in your own garden.
Echo Buds v2
If you’ve grown accustomed to always having Alexa, Amazon’s second-generation Echo Buds are one of the best headphones you can buy right now. They have native virtual assistant integration, while not giving up sound quality and noise cancellation.
