Summer, sun, beach – Alexa: These gadgets listen to Alexa voice commands
The sun is burning, not a cloud in the sky: one would prefer not to move a millimeter. Fortunately, we don't have to either. Finally, Alexa can turn on the music for us, turn on the fan and even take care of the garden if necessary. We show how to do it.
Alexa gadgets for summer type 1 – "beach dwellers" in party mode
In hot temperatures, this sun-hungry species can only be found on or in the water. The rule is: the louder and longer the party, the better. So that the music doesn't end abruptly even after a long night, there are special outdoor Bluetooth speakers. The MEGABLAST model from Ultimate Ears is e.g. B. not only compatible with Alexa, but also plays music continuously for up to 16 hours. Even if the Bluetooth speaker accidentally falls into the water, it will survive the wet without damage for up to 30 minutes.
Alexa gadgets for summer type 2 – “garden lovers”
The garden fan lives in the here and now, who makes himself comfortable in his own garden in summer heat and likes to listen to relaxing music. He does not have to worry about garden maintenance, because luckily Alexa can now control many robotic lawnmowers on call via Robonect Skill – e.g. also popular models from Husquarna or GARDENA. On request, it can also supply the plants with sufficient water (e.g. via the GARDENA MultiControl duo irrigation computer).
When dusk finally falls, atmospheric Philips Hue outdoor lamps or Innr lights perfectly stage the garden.

A balcony is the perfect compromise between the lively hustle and bustle of the beach with lots of strangers and the seclusion of a private garden. The balcony also offers the option of using smart health home devices that require a power connection. This includes, for example, the Alexa-capable Princess 350000 tower fan.
A well-chilled cocktail also provides refreshment. Anyone who does not yet have a favorite variant will find many suggestions via the bartender Alexa Skill.
Our tip for individualists: Mobile Alexa lights and Alexa car gadgets
If you cannot decide which summer type you belong to and would rather do something different every day, we have two extra tips for you.
Mood lights with Alexa voice control option provide beautiful light in many different locations. One of the most popular is e.g. Philips Hue Go, but users should pay attention to protect them from moisture. It gets even cheaper with the (unfortunately wired) multicolored Meross Alexa lamp.
By the way, road trip junkies can also integrate Alexa into their car (e.g. with Roav Viva). We explain in our Alexa Car guide how this works: How Alexa gets into your car.
