Echo Dot with clock (5th generation, 2022 release) | Bigger vibrant sound Wi-Fi and Bluetooth smart speaker and Alexa | Glacier White
About this deal
Despite the larger speaker driver, don’t expect a lot more power from the fifth-gen Echo Dot With Clock. KEEP YOUR HOME COMFORTABLE - Control compatible smart home devices with your voice and routines triggered by indoor temperature sensors.
OUR BEST SOUNDING ECHO DOT YET - Enjoy an improved audio experience compared to any previous Echo Dot with Alexa for clearer vocals, deeper bass and vibrant sound in any room. EERO BUILT-IN – Turn your Echo device into a Wi-Fi extender in minutes with compatible Echo and eero devices. My only caveat with this Echo Dot is that its audio is one big meh compared to its larger sibling, the Echo (hopefully, the Echo will get its own built-in display soon). I tested the accuracy by putting another smart temp sensor in the same room with an additional stand alone temperature sensor.
The same is true for the Dot's top-tapping feature; I wish you could customize it more than the Alexa app's paltry options that you can mess with the ultrasonic sensitivity, a fun little feature it uses to discern movement in a room.
My one gripe is the extremely short power cable which restricts you to placing the device next to a power socket. When I asked for the weather or to set a timer, the Dot usually responded in less than two seconds, compared to just over three seconds on the fourth-gen device. It'll do just fine for spoken-word content and won't be a bother if you like having some background music. VOICE-CONTROLLED SMART HOME – Control compatible lights, locks, fans, and more with just your voice or create routines triggered by motion sensors.Paired with compatible light bulbs, thermostats and more, Echo Dot helps you control your smart home using your voice or in-built indoor temperature sensor. The accuracy of the Alexa sensor was accurate and comparable to the two other sensors tested in the same room . With multiple devices, you can drop in on other rooms throughout the home, or make an announcement to every room with a compatible Echo device.
