As impressive as Amazon’s Alexa technology is, it’s not always clear how best to use it. Sure, you can get it to tell you the weather, play music, and set alarms, but that only scratches the surface of what this AI is really capable of. And if you never manage to buy and sync compatible devices, you won’t be able to explore much further than that.
If you’re not quite convinced with voice-activated technology yet, or just want to increase the spell of a spell, it’s definitely worth checking out the , an Alexa-enabled smart light that’s available now for just $ 90 (normally $ 199). It integrates Amazon Alexa, so it fulfills a direct function besides having such a charming voice.
This smart light has all the features, functionality and control you would expect from Amazon Alexa – only it is packaged in an innovative design inspired by Richard Clarkson. Speaking of which, this fixture fits perfectly into your contemporary (if not traditional) space with its smooth, polished steel frame and soft, warm lighting.
Part of the design’s brilliance is how it syncs its own aesthetic with Alexa technology. Not only can you set alarms, but you can sync them with the light to emit something called “vibrating light” in the morning to help you wake up, or “soothing light” in the evening to help you relax.
You can also set it to passively switch from daylight lighting to a soft white shade at night, helping to maintain your circadian rhythm without even thinking about it. And, of course, it’s compatible with any Alexa-enabled smart device you already own (or just have your eye on).
