Amazon Tech with Mario Armstrong


With everyone spending extra time at home right now, staying healthy, productive, and entertained can be a challenge. Mario Armstrong, Digital Lifestyle Expert, recommends some Amazon products that can make being home all day a little more bearable.

Morning Time: The Echo Dot is the perfect way to get started on the right side of the bed. By programming your desired settings on the Amazon Alexa App, you can have the lights turned on, the fan settings adjusted, and the weather read to you simply by saying “Alexa, good morning.”

Work Time: When it is time to get down to business tell the Echo Dot, “Alexa, it’s time to work” and Philips Light Bulbs will adjust to your preferred brightness, you’ll receive calendar reminders, and Alexa can even tell you a motivational quote.

Kid’s Time: The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet is sure to keep children entertained while educated. The tablet provides educational content for children, and parents can set time limits with the parental controls.

Entertainment or Exercise Time: The Fire TV Stick 4K, gives you access to workout videos, including yoga, Pelaton, and more. Streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video are also available using the Fire Stick.

Meal Time: Alexa devices are also extremely useful in the kitchen. Say “Alexa, open Food Network Kitchen” and you’ll have access to delicious recipes from your favorite chefs that the whole family can make.
