The Echo is Amazon's little smart tube that perks up whenever you say "Alexa" and proceeds to do whatever you say. Well, as long as what you say is something it has the capability to do. If you have a house filled with Wink-compatible products, that list now includes telling Echo to take control of your home.

Try, "Alexa, turn off the fan" or "Alexa, turn on the kitchen lights." Then watch as you never burn calories getting up to flip switches yourself.


By connecting Echo to your Wink Hub, you can use your voice to control a range of supported devices. Options include Lutron's Caseta plug-in lamp dimmer and a number of GE LED lights. These join the likes of Belkin WeMo outlets and Philips Hue lightbulbs, which Echo could already adjust.

Just in case you're off to go buy all the smart equipment you can, here's the full list of hardware Echo is now compatible with.
