I’m calling it now folks—smart displays are the next big thing in the smart home arena of products. The Echo Show 5 for example, Amazon’s latest gadget to hit the scene, combines the benefits of their voice assistant, Alexa, with on-screen visuals, which quite literally means hours of entertainment without you having to lift a finger. Best of all? Amazon just knocked $25 off the price of the Echo Show 5—now available for a mere $64.99.
Small but mighty with a 5.5-inch display, the Echo Show 5 is perfect to perch atop your kitchen counter for easy recipe-following, or on your night stand to check the news, traffic, and weather after you wake up. It features a 1 MP camera so you can video chat your friends and family, but also comes with a physical shutter to cover up the lens for added privacy. The built-in speakers will also work fine for listening to your favorite tunes (and singing along with the lyrics on display) but just in case you want something more powerful, there’s an audio output for use with for use with external speakers or headphones. Plus, if you own other smart home devices like the Ring Video Doorbell or Amazon Smart Plug, you can ask Alexa to show your security camera feed, turn off the lights, and more, all via your Echo Show 5.
All in all, if you’re looking to test the waters of smart devices or to expand your growing collection, the Echo Show 5 will be a great addition to your home, especially at this sale price. The voice command and smart display pairing seems to be the new trend these days, so why not get ahead of it?
