The Amazon Echo Dot alone is a pretty unassuming product, but it's all you really need to control many different smart home products using just your voice. We've rounded up the ten best smart home accessories to buy with your Amazon Echo Dot.

Build out the smart home of your dreams

It's pretty incredible how many cool smart home products work well with Alexa, but the most useful accessory on our list is not much more than custom-fitted plastic. There's something brilliant about the TotalMount wall mount (opens in new tab) for the Echo Dot. It lets you get your smart speaker up off the countertop and mounted near an outlet on a wall, which helps ensure Alexa always clearly hears you.

There are some really cool Amazon products for entertaining or even feeding yourself, like the Amazon Smart Oven (opens in new tab) that will automatically order popcorn when you're running low. This smart appliance features Alexa integration and is a breeze to set up and use.

Another great place to start is with a starter kit of smart bulbs. Sengled's two-bulb starter kit (opens in new tab) is a great place to start because Sengled's bulbs are top quality. Once you've got that hub, it's easy to add extra bulbs, and you can get an 8-pack of soft white smart bulbs (opens in new tab) for the price of less than $10 a bulb which is an absolute steal of a deal.
