Smart voice control

Smart home devices often have a central hub or controller like Amazon Echo. Having a home control system like this means you can connect all your smart tech and control them all with your voice – this includes smart lights, heating and even plugs.

What's Amazon Echo?

Amazon Echo devices(1) are voice-controlled speakers designed entirely around voice – it's always ready, hands-free and fast. 

Alexa is the smart assistant inside an Amazon Echo. There are many Amazon Alexa skills you can get to help you in your smart home. Amazon Echo is much more than a smart speaker. You can ask Alexa to play music, read the news, set alarms, answer questions, check sports scores and even review your energy account. This can all be done from across a room, thanks to Echo's far-field voice control functionality.

Get the ultimate smart assistant by visiting the EDF Energy smart store for all your voice control needs.
