What is the Amazon Echo Plus?
With the first Echo, Amazon gave us a neat body for the Alexa digital assistant. It provided a way of controlling all of our smart home devices by voice command, as well as being a wireless speaker. With the Echo Plus, Amazon is taking things one step further integrating a Zigbee hub. The idea is that this could be the only smart home device you need, and you won’t need an array of hubs plugged into your network.
It’s a step in the right direction, but a few software limitations hold the Plus back for now.
