Take Control of Your Home: Amazon Echo Hub Available in Australia

Published

on

Whether you have a couple or a dozen Alexa enabled devices, you must consider the Echo Hub. Now available in Australia, the Echo Hub is an 8-inch touch-enabled display that acts like a ‘master control’ for all of your smart home devices.

Selling for A$329, the Echo Hub brings your security cameras, door sensors, lights, sound systems etc, etc into one neat and logical control unit.

As I explained in the Sky News segment above, essentially there’s no need for a really expensive bespoke smart home setup when you can just add the Echo Hub to your house tech. The control panel is just the right size to be located anywhere in the home. I’ve chosen in the kitchen next to coffee machine.. as that’s where I spend most of my time. You’ll see that and more in our comprehensive review video being shot right now.

  • The ability to view multiple camera feeds from your security cams or doorbell. 
  • Adaptive content, which automatically transitions from a screen with a clock and photo display, to the customisable smart home control screen through infrared technology which detects user proximity.
