Not a fan of Amazon’s low-lying disk of domestic smarts? If you want Alexa’s skills without the Echo, Jam Audio’s new Voice speaker (£50) might just do the trick. Equipped with the same voice-controlled cleverness of the Dot, it’ll do music streaming, traffic updates and device control – all with the power of your voice. Buy a bevy of Jams and they’ll play nice as a multi-room setup, too, with the option to pair up to 8 Voices for a proper house party. And, given Jam’s prior form in the Bluetooth speaker stakes, chances are it’ll sound nicer than an Amazon number.
Let’s shed some light on all the best smart lights worth considering – which one is the top pick for you?
