The Original Smart Home Ecosystem
Amazon’s first smart speaker hit the market in November of 2014. Considering that there have been over 100 million Amazon Echo devices sold since then, there’s a pretty good chance you know someone that has one of these nifty devices in their home and now you’re thinking about getting one for yourself.
Getting a smart speaker and other smart home devices initially set up and communicating properly with each other can be a real hassle.

Luckily, Oculogix specializes in helping you find exactly the smart home devices that will fit your needs in particular and help make your life easier and more enjoyable. Call today to get started on planning your perfect smart home.

What is Amazon Alexa?
Amazon Alexa is the name of Amazon’s virtual assistant. Similar to Google Assistant or Apple’s Siri, Alexa is the name given to the operating system behind Amazon Echo smart home products. While Amazon Echo was originally just the name of the “Alexa Enabled” smart speaker that could interact with its owner, Echo has now become the largest line of smart home products.
Why Pick Amazon?
Amazon Echo was the first smart home speaker to hit the market in November of 2014 — that’s two years before Google released the first Google Home, and three and a half years before Apple’s HomePod. Because of this, Amazon’s Echo line of products is more diverse than ever and now includes several different sized speakers, a subwoofer, multiple smart displays, input devices, internet TV, and more. That’s just the products they produce in house. Because they have been around longer than anyone else, Amazon Echo is compatible with more third-party products than any other smart home ecosystem and they have a user interface that is always improving. So if you’re looking to install the original smart home ecosystem in your home, check out our Amazon Alexa smart home starter kit!
Advantages of Amazon
Perhaps Amazon’s greatest strength is its ubiquity of third-party support. Practically every smart home device on the market is compatible with Alexa. While Google is slowly catching up, Alexa still remains king in that are
- Most Diverse Line-Up — With over a dozen unique and innovative products from speakers and displays, to rings and glasses, the Echo line is an impressive juggernaut in the field of smart home
- Third-Party Compatibility — Perhaps Amazon’s greatest strength is its ubiquity of third-party compatibility. Practically every smart home device on the market proudly displays the “Works with Alexa” sticker somewhere on its packaging. While Google is slowly catching up, Alexa still remains king in this arena
- Third-Party Integration — In addition to all of the various devices that are able to work with Amazon Alexa, there are also dozens of companies like Sonos Speakers, Eero Wifi Routers, and Insignia TV’s that come with Alexa already integrated into their operating system. This makes adding these types of devices and keeping them compatible much more manageable for the common consumer.
- Media Streaming — While Amazon’s FireTV had a bit of a rough start, it is now one of the best streaming platforms available with lots of exclusive premium content.
