UK Based - Echo Dot and Smart Things integration help needed
« on: February 10, 2020, 08:06:27 am »
Just got an echo dot as a birthday present.

Want to start adding plug in sockets and light bulbs to it but also want to prepare for the future.

What brands would you recommend ?

Havenít got SmartThings yet but have been told as I expand it will help to have a hub

Will I also eventually need a bridge for the lights or will I need this from day 1 ?

Any advice welcomed as I donít want to waste money going down the wrong road.

I've been using Kasa Smart Plugs by TP-Link for several years now to control lights and TV via Alexa. Never had any problems. Amazon usually has good deals on TP-Link products.
