Alexa has always taken up valuable space or is a total eyesore.
Ecobee has released a brand new light switch that has Alexa built right into the light switch. Where it now just blends right into your home like it's not even there but with the simple word of ALEXA, she is right there to help you out and do what you want her to do.
PROs- Switch blends right into your house (like smart home automation should), easy to install (if you have a neutral wire), auto-light on, auto-light off, sunset on/off, night light,
CONs- not dimmable*, Alexa drop-in feature not available, multi-room music feature not available, doesn't work as 3-4 way switch, the mic is really bad compared to echo devices ( You have to be loud and close by), No ESP (so other Alexa respond at the same time, which the company claims is a limitation set by Amazon), Speaker is not very loud or clear, but good enough for basic functions, Not allowed to play Apple Music through Alexa (another limitation set by Amazon or Apple)
