The Echo Glow can be paired with any compatible Alexa device so you can begin voice controlling it. When it's not set up on a timer, you can ask Alexa to turn it to a specific color, to make it dimmer or brighter, or to change modes. It was designed for kids to use too, and they'll have a blast asking Alexa to do their bidding. You might just want to think about including an Echo Dot Kids Edition smart speaker with the purchase. Now's a perfect time to pick one up too as they're also on sale for a limited time.
