Bought this for my mum after she had been asking about smart home devices. My whole family absolutely adore our Echo and it has become second nature to use it. It intergrated great with our smart lights (Philips Hues) and was a breeze to set up. Even in the 2 weeks we have been using it there is a constant stream of new Skills for Alexa, which is incredible when you think it's only been released for a month in AUS. LOVE IT and can't wait to get another one!
