If this question has been answered elsewhere I apologise, I have tried searching but can’t find the answer.
Basically the question I would like to find the answer for is regarding the new Echo Plus – will it directly control Lightwaverf products?
I’ve got a few lights and sockets through my house, as well as an inline relay controlling my immersion heater. I mainly control them through my Echo dot and everything is (pretty much) straight forward.
I’ve got a few plugs and switches spare, so I was planning on fitting some in my parents’ house as a Xmas surprise, coupled with an Amazon Alexa enabled product. But I don’t know which one to go for…
If the Echo Plus works with Lightwave, then that’s the one, as other products can easily be added over time. (Like this for example – https://www.gearbest.com/smart-lighting/pp_634478.html?wid=21)
If not, I would buy one of the new £80 Echo’s and a Lightwave Link.
Hopefully this makes sense and someone could give me an idea on which way to go.
So far, there is not much info on the capability of the hub inside the plus.
It does look it controls devices through wifi or zigbee, so I think it is a pretty good bet that there is no direct Lightwaverf support, so either a link or other bridge device is needed.
Thanks for the replies.
I thought as much, a bit of unwelcome news. Seems Lightwave is going to be late to the party again..
I’d imagine that there are soon going to be a few lightwaverf gen-1 link’s going cheap on ebay. So one of these together with the standard echo or dot and you may well have change from what an echo-plus would cost.
