Black Friday 2020 is the big day today. We are looking at televisions, equipment to improve network coverage at home, but also devices to enjoy our favorite music or speakers with integrated assistants. And in this installment we are going to review products that come to make up what we have called the connected home.
A smart ecosystem in which personal assistants have a lot to do with it and in this article we are going to review some of the most interesting product offerings that are integrated into the smart home, like Alexa, Google Assistant and even Siri. A review of the most varied that we start now.
Speakers to control them all
- And although we can use the mobile, if we have a device that integrates an assistant, the process will be even easier. So for this first option we have opted for a model like the Nest Mini which is at a very good price. For 18.70 euros we can find it and it is used to control some of the devices that we will see later.
- If ours is Amazon and Alexa, we can opt for its most affordable speaker in its latest version, the Echo Dot (4th generation). The smart speaker with Alexa drop from 59.99 euros to 29.99 euros. It is the model that does not have a watch. The one that incorporates the watch has a price of 39.99 euros instead of the 69.99 euros that it costs, but it is not sent until a period that goes from March to May.
- And if we want something cheaper, we also have previous year’s model of the Echo Dot, the third generation, which now costs 19.99 euros instead of the 49.99 euros it previously cost
