This year's Black Friday deals are upon us and that means everything and anything gets a steep discount, from fashion to fitness to tech to toys. Amazon's Echo Flex, a quick and simple way to make your home smarter, is one such product, with steep discounts as the sales period goes on.
The premise behind the Echo Flex is simple: put Alexa into any room by plugging the Flex into a socket. The Flex will listen for commands and connect with other smart and Alexa-enabled devices, like your lights. If you have a Flex in your kitchen, you could use it to dim the outside lights or switch on the heating in your bedroom.
Beyond controlling other devices, Flex can also get Alexa to play music, read the news, set reminders, check the weather, and message friends and family. Alexa can even alert your kids that dinner is ready. It sounds too good to be true but it's not.
Flex also includes a USB-A port on the bottom which can be used either for charging devices like your phone or with Amazon or third party motion sensor and nightlight accessories. Privacy has been thought about from the start, too, with a dedicated button to switch off the built-in mic.
