Why I am loving the Amazon Echo Show 15

This Christmas, we bought ourselves the Echo Show 15. At first, I didn’t think this was another product that we needed. We have a few Echo Shows already, why another? Well, this is is much bigger. Currently, we have it over my husband’s work station, here at the house. So personally, I am not able to use it as much as I want, but I am still reaping some of the benefits.

What I (we) use it for:

We can view our security cameras, add/remove items from the family shopping list, add sticky notes to other members in the house. Each person can have their own account and send messages to specific people. “Alexa, add a sticky note for ____” and she will ask what you want it to say. I have to say my favorite feature, right now, is when I am in the kitchen and I notice we are running low on something, I say “Alexa, add ____ to the shopping list” Within seconds, it has been added and is visible on the Show 15 immediately. Hands free grocery list. LOVE IT! My hands hurt enough as it is, any help I can get it greatly accepted.

When I walk up to the Show 15, it will change to my specific profile. My widgets and icons. I love the customization. Plus, it can display a slideshow of your selected photos.

AND you can stream your favorite movies and shows! It really is super cool. I have only just begun experiencing all of the awesome that this Echo Show 15 has to offer. I will post again, when I’ve had more time to see what all it can do.

Here is a video my husband, son and brother-in-law put together for their channel: Smarthome Riggs
