Why you need an Amazon Echo Dot in every room!

Amazon’s Echo Dot is a speaker that uses voice recognition software powered by the Amazon Alexa voice assistant. It resembles a hockey puck with two buttons on top.   Having one in every room will make life much easier for you especially in the garage.

Echo Dot has everything the Echo has including long range, far-field voice capabilities, a microphone off button, an action button (for WiFi).  With “Alexa” you can control smart home devices, play music, hear the news, weather, traffic, sports and answer questions.  The echo or echo dot both have abilities such as Fitbit, Domino’s Pizza, Uber and Capitol One available in the Alexa app.
