The ecobee Switch+ Smart Light Switch with Amazon Alexa
For the money, you’ll be hard pressed to find a smarter light switch. The ecobee Switch+ has Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa built right in, and it can do everything you’d expect:
- turn the connected lights off & on with your voice (as well as other smart devices you’ve connected to your Amazon/Alexa account)
- tell you the weather or the news
- play music through Amazon Music Unlimited or Spotify Premium
- add items to your to-do lists or perform any of Alexa’s other skills
Plus, integrated motion & light sensors mean that Switch+ can be configured to automatically turn off the lights when no one’s around and even throw on a nightlight when it’s dark out. Connect it to a set of outdoor lights and you’ll be able to automate them turning off and on with sunrise or sunset.
