8 Alexa-enabled gadgets we can’t wait to use from CES 2019
Amazon’s Alexa is now available in tens of thousands of devices. Rather than use the same old Echo speaker, it’s time to branch out. From smart sinks to pet cameras, Alexa is ready and available just about everywhere.
- What can Alexa do? Summoning knowledge from a smart speaker is nothing short of futuristic. But, Amazon Alexa is so much more than an information relay system.
- What’s the latest Alexa feature? Other than whispering, Alexa is now going to get a “newscaster” voice. So, if you ask her about the latest news, she’ll respond like a professional newscaster.
- Where can I find more Alexa gadgets? In order to enhance your home with Amazon Alexa, we have a dedicated Alexa category just for you.
With over 50,000 skills worldwide, Amazon’s Alexa is a clear front-runner in the world of smart assistants. She can order more detergent when you run out, give you seemingly endless information, and even relax your dog (a skill I use daily!). But, she isn’t restricted to Echo devices from Amazon. In fact, there are over 20,000 Alexa-enabled gadgets where you can access her knowledge and services.
Here are eight Alexa devices we saw at CES 2019 that we just can’t wait to use.
Meural Canvas Modern Digital Art Frame
Being an art lover in the 21st century is amazing. With endless access to artwork, history, and more, we’re spoiled for choice. When it comes to hanging it on our walls, Meural is the 21st-century answer. You can change the artwork on display as often as you want and, with Alexa built-in, you can do it with your voice.
LG Rollable OLED TV
We know we’ve given you a lot of TV updates from CES 2019. But this it’s different – this LG OLED TV is actually rollable. Imagine sitting in your living room and asking Alexa to unfold your TV every time you want to Netflix or watch a game. This incredible 65-inch TV makes that idea a reality.
Ring Door View Cam
Despite looking like a smart doorbell, this device is designed to actually replace the peephole on your door. As a result, it captures a better view at who’s standing outside, unlike the position of a typical doorbell. With built-in Alexa compatibility, you can respond to the door view cam directly with your voice.
Kohler Konnect Sensate Smart Kitchen Sink Faucet
No one enjoys menial tasks in the kitchen. But with a faucet that you can control with your voice, mundane tasks can become interesting once again. Along with Alexa features, the Sensate Smart Faucet dispenses accurate amounts of water and offers two sprays to simplify your daily kitchen chore.
ASUS Lyra Voice Alexa Router Speaker
While there are plenty of Alexa-enabled speakers on the market (many of which are from Amazon themselves), the Lyra from ASUS goes above and beyond. In addition to pumping out the tunes, Lyra also doubles as a home internet router.
U by Moen Smart Shower
Controlling your shower just got a whole lot easier with the U by Moen Smart Shower, now featuring Amazon Alexa compatibility. These showers allow you to control them with your voice. You can easily start, stop and pause your shower with a simple command. Just ask Alexa and you’re ready to go.
Kohler Numi 2.0 Intelligent Toilet
Combining comfort and entertainment, this clever toilet boasts impressive ambiance thanks to built-in surround sound speakers as well as mood lighting. Yes, you read that correctly: now you can set the mood when it’s time to go. With a single command to Alexa, you can start your favorite playlist and set the lights so they’re just right.
Petcube Bites Treat Flinging Pet Camera
Armed with an exceptional 138° wide-angle camera, this smart device does so much more than show cute moments of your dog or cat. Pairing with an app, Petcube Bites actually flings treats throughout the room for a little extra exercise. And with Alexa compatibility, it will dole out treats as often as you want by just using your voice.
