Got my Tap

In the Black Friday sale to go with my echo and it’s now sitting at my bedside. You do need a bluetooth or wired speaker unless you want rather tinny sound (fine for alarms etc).

It’s great!


Amazon Echo as a Baby Monitor

This idea is a variation of a previous idea… using Amazon Echo as an intercom. This one would be super simple to implement. All you need is an Amazon Echo in the baby’s room to pick up the sound, and you can listen from a second one in your own bedroom or from the Amazon Echo App.

This is a fantastic idea. Just needs an Echo + Tap.
