Amazon Echo devices: Smart home hubs

If you don’t own the Echo Plus but have one of Amazon’s other Echo speakers, you’re going to need a smart-home hub to act as the middleman between Alexa and your smart devices. While it might sound like an additional inconvenience, it’s simple to set up and allows you to pair all of your devices together so you can make your home truly voice-activated. Here's a list of all of the smart-home hubs that are compatible with Amazon Echo.

Samsung SmartThings Hub


Logitech Harmony Home Hub


Energenie Home Gateway

Philips Hue Home Automation Smart Bridge

D-Link Connected Home Hub

Panasonic Smart Home Hub

Homematic IP Access Point

Amazon Echo devices: Lighting

One of the first household objects to get smart-device compatibility, there are frankly too many smart-home lightbulbs that work with Alexa and Amazon Echo to list. With these, you'll be able to dim, turn them on or off and even change the colours of your home's lighting, all with the power of your vocal chords. Many of these bulbs don't require a smart hub, either. Neat.

Amazon Echo devices: Home security, cameras and locks

Smart locks are handy little devices that give you an extra layer of security in accessing your home. Allowing you to lock and unlock your doors with the power of Alexa via a PIN code, you can also view any of your connected security cameras through the Echo Show's display if you happen to have one of those. Want to watch one of your camera feeds? Just give the command – it's that easy. There are too many to list, so we've narrowed it down to the best-known products from each

Amazon Echo devices: Plugs and switches

Smart switches and power outlets give you the ability to turn your "dumb" devices into smart ones. From small electronics to larger home appliances, smart switches allow you to ask Alexa to turn on an appliance through the designated power outlet or switch. They're super handy, and a doddle to set up. Once again, there are too many list, but products from all of the following manufacturers support Alexa (including those listed here).

Hive Active Plug

Energenie Remote Control Sockets

Aneken Smart Plug

Philips Hue Smart Switch

Amazon Echo devices: Heating and cooling

Imagine controlling the temperature of your house with just the power of your voice. What a world we're living in, because these smart thermostats will do just that. These allow you to not only raise heat levels or cool down the house, but also save you money in the long run by reducing your energy costs. These are the biggest brands:

Honeywell Lyric T6 Smart Internet-enabled Thermostat

Tado Smart Thermostat Starter Kit v3

Netatmo Smart Thermostat

Nest Learning Thermostat 3

Hive Active Heating

Honeywell 7-day Programmable Thermostat 

SALUS IT500 Internet Controlled Thermostat

Amazon Echo devices: Vacuum cleaners

Let's be honest. Sometimes, we're just not in the mood to get up and clean the house. Perhaps you've had a busy day or want to have a lazy weekend, rather than having to worry about vacuuming. With the use of Amazon Echo, however, you can control compatible vacuums to do the cleaning for you.

Amazon Echo devices: Wireless routers

Amazon Echo devices: Speakers/Soundbars

Using an Amazon Echo device, you can connect with compatible sound speakers and use them for a variety of purposes. You can ask the Echo to play your favourite music, listen to a podcast or turn on the news and the Echo will play your request using the sound speakers. Once more, there are a large number of products in this category, so we'll list a snapshot here.

Amazon Echo devices: Smart kitchen

With more devices becoming compatible with Amazon Echo and turning our houses into smart homes, entire rooms are slowly turning into hubs for multiple smart products. Kitchens are a prime example of this, with precision cookers, blenders, coffee machines and brewing devices all having Echo compatibility.

Anova Precision Cooker

NutriBullet Balance

Smarter Coffee

Amazon Echo devices: Televisions

Televisions being compatible with Amazon Echo makes sense. We already use remotes to change channels, settings and the volume. Using our voices is the logical next step and multiple television manufacturers have designed their TVs with that in mind.
