This by far is the BEST Echo EVER!!!!

I am not one for reviews but I just had to write this. This thing is a work of art. My whole house is a smart house from my locks to my thermostats. I have 1 Echo, 4 Echo Dots and now one Echo Spot. I love this. It works as expected. I am a total Apple Guy but I choose Alexa over Siri any day. Amazon has knocked it out of the park!

A new companion for my Brother With MS

My brother Robert who has been bed ridden and paralyzed with Multiple Sclerosis from his neck down for more than 30 years now has a new friend named Alexa! He was in tears with happiness when Alexa played 70's music, played Jeopardy, answered all his questions and wakes him up every morning. Thank you Amazon for giving my brother a new bedside companion.
Happy Holidays
Roy

Great Weather Station

The Netatmo station works as expected and provides me with up to the minute weather at my home.
I also allow other in my small community to see my weather readings. Worth the money.

I really like the product

I really like the product, but the reason why it is only 4 stars is the CO2 measuring accuracy. I feel that this could have been better calibrated when it left the factory. I have a sensor for a competitor and it is more accurate on CO2 out of the box but netatmo is more accurate on everything else. I just hope this is something that they can fix through an update.

The iOS app is easy to use. It would be nice to include some sort of chart to see What is a safe level and what is not. Not just a bar that says good. Maybe an Info button with more info that says you hit 1000ppm but this is common when you have a lot of people over or put in new carpet (which evidently can affect these readings).

Easy to setup



 I set this up on my Alexa and the Kasa app in less than 30 minutes start to finish. I noticed that sometimes I would say the command, "Alexa turn on lamp," and Alexa would respond "ok" without actually turning anything on. The issue was my 5-year-old router. I replaced the router with a new router that could handle more devices. The new router resolved the issue. I've been using this plug for a few months now and it is still working great.

as a quadriplegic, i have assisted showers and over 30 years i have been frozen and scalded dozens of times when they wheel me beneath the shower. This unit can be turned on and then be adjusted to green (warm) and i'm safe... as we get used to it, i may ask to adjust to edge between orange and green to take hot pulsating shower for sore muscles and maybe relax chronic spasms SO FAR IT IS GREAT

Working Good Now

We had a faulty shower head with our first purchase of this unit. It worked properly for a short 4 months, and then started making terrible screeching sounds when in use. We had passed our return/replace window with Amazon, but upon contacting the seller directly, they worked quickly and replaced the shower head at no additional cost to me. I am impressed and thankful for their prompt response! Customer service matters! We do really like the color changing shower head. I will be back to update my review if it starts with the same noise problem again.

Perfect - is now a must have!

This shower head is fantastic. My other shower head was very noisy, and the water flow / coverage was not that great. The main problem was that you had to reach / feel into the shower to see if the water was warm enough to get into the shower plus it took 1 minute minimum to warm up to a comfortable temperature. This new head allows us to visually see when the water is cold, warm, and hot, it allows us to set a temp that we like visually (color of blue, green, red depict 3 temp ranges), has versatile spray selections although we basically use just the rain shower setting. Also, a giant plus is how fast the shower warms up to temperature now - I'm guessing this benefit is because of better water flow allows the hot water to reach the head faster. Anyway, this is a perfect addition, is not a gimmick, and the product is attractive and appears to be well built. We have had it for 4 days, but so far so good!

This camera SAVED my dog's life

We ordered this camera on thanksgiving just because it was on sale. It was delivered by Saturday and I installed it immediately. Sunday my family and I went out of town and I was excited to be able to watch our dog through the cloud cam app. On the way home Sunday evening, I received a notification that motion was detected. I open the app and see that my house had caught on fire and my dog was stuck inside. After calling 911 and a neighbor to break in to rescue our dog, I reopened the app to see the entire room filled with smoke and the fire blazing in the kitchen. Luckily this app saves videos for a week so I was able to share them with our fire department. I was also able to download the videos as well as zoom in to see what caused the fire (my dog hit the stove burner on). The camera is now melted and ruined, but I am forever grateful. I will order another one when we can live in our home again. Thank you Amazon for the sale and thank the universe nothing worse happened!

WARNING - No way to turn off the microphone

I ordered 3 cameras, and they certainly look nice and are easy to setup. But I was very surprised to learn that unlike other similar cameras, there is no way to turn off the microphone on the camera. This is a very serious issue, and even a legal concern, since it's illegal to record audio of other people without their permission in many states. There is also the potential for a hacker, an Amazon employee, or legal authorities to use this functionality to listen in to your home 24/7. I confirmed with Amazon support that there is currently no way to turn off the sound recording.

Hopefully they will fix this issue in the future. For now, I'm sending the cameras back to Amazon.

Pairing/Setup more complex than it should be, IR a bit finicky.

The device and charging dock are great functionality and aesthetically.

Setup, however was not easy with Amazon Fire TV, which was my main reason for upgrading to this from another Logitech remote. The instructions on the site are out of date and it took me a few hours of fiddling to determine I had it right with previous attempts.

Programming didn’t work on the phone at all, I had to use a computer even though it says the app should work for that.

Now I am messing with arranging the IR repeaters appropriately as they seem to be affected by sunlight or something.

Overall does what it is supposed to but doesn’t have as easy access to the ‘help’ function used to turn on a device if it somehow didn’t respond in the right timing (something I used a lot with my old Logitech remotes).

It doesn’t work with a multi room setup either which is disappointing.

With those things in mind, I expected more from such an expensive remote.

Even better than the prior 900 model and several other brands i buy to play with but never use.

Prior best unit for me was the Harmony 900. I still own very expensive Philips units ets but the 900 was clearly the best . Without going through what "best" means to me, this is even better. Smaller , better batteries, smarter, and one button set up of all your toys presuming you had them set up on a Harmony as I did before. Btw...looks like a one line display...it is not . The display is the top 25% of the unit offering super flexibility. In some purchase decisions u may feel price is high and consider a lesser unit. Don't buy a lesser unit in this case. Worth every penney. Have fun with it...I am.

Great smart lock

Purchased used and thankfully it arrived in mint condition. Super easy to replace my gen 2 lock with this one. Z-wave setup was a bit of a headache to get working with SmartThings, but I suppose I don’t have much use for that connection at the moment anyways. Maybe if I didn’t already have a door open/close sensor setup to trigger hallway lights.

Is a nice addition to my door.

First off, I really like this automatic lock. It was a relatively easy installation. Automatic opening (when I come home) and automatic locking (when I leave the house) work very intuitively. Not so intuitive is when I go outside temporarily, such as yard work, the automatic locking action happens, but just getting close to the door again will not open the lock. I have to open my phone to access the app or use my key to open the door. I would give 5 stars if a voice command or perhaps a tap on the phone would open the door in not so intuitive situation.

For the most part it worked. The set up was a little bit more challenging for both cell phone. I did use the sensor which didn’t work properly all the time because it would lock when the door was open. Unfortunately I return of the units because I feel for the money it shouldn’t be as complicated.
