The Echo Flex plug-in speaker is the most affordable way to add Alexa voice assistance to your home.
In our Echo Flex review, we loved its hassle-free set up and nifty accessories and gave it a 4 out of 5 star rating. Although it lacks the audio quality of the Echo Dot, its routine-friendly motion sensor adds smart skills to any space.
Design-wise, the Echo Flex looks more like a plug-in carbon monoxide detector than an audio device. Its 5.3-ounce 2.8 x 2.6 x 2.0-inch plastic shell is compatible with traditional wall outlets.
Like Amazon's family of Echo Speakers, it features a status light, dual microphones, a button to wake Alexa and a microphone switch. There's a 3.5mm like on on either side and unlike the Echo Dot, there are no volume controls for its 0.6 inch built-in speaker.
The Echo Flex shines as an intercom enough to communicate a brief message or last-minute reminder. In real world tests we could hear the person on the other line clearly when calling someone.
The optional $15 motion sensor for Echo Flex, lets you create Alexa automated smart home routines while the $15 Night-Light intuitively illuminates when its internal light sensor detects a dark environment.
So if you're looking for a cheap means of implementing smart functionality throughout your home, this $17 Echo Flex is your best bet.
