Calling all Echo lovers! Just in time for the holiday season, Amazon’s plug-in mini smart speaker — dubbed the Echo Flex — is on sale for less than $15.

While you may have an Echo Dot in your office, an Echo Show in your kitchen and the original Echo Spot in your living room, there are bound to be a few places in your home that aren’t Alexa-compatible — until now.

The Echo Flex can essentially make any space “smart.” Just plug it into an outlet, and ask Alexa to do anything from adding a task to your to-do list to sharing the weather forecast to making hands-free calls. Plus, you can “drop-in” on other rooms in your house that have Echos, using the device like an intercom system. Yes, you can finally stop yelling up the stairs that dinner is ready.

Shop: Amazon Echo Flex, $12.99 (Orig. $24.99)

This little device can also help control all of your smart home products. If you have compatible smart lights, ask Alexa to turn them on in the morning or to dim them at night. If you have a compatible thermostat, ask Alexa to warm up the house when you’re heading home.

To add some security to your home, Amazon also says you can “enable Alexa Guard to get smart alerts if your Echo device detects the sound of smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms or glass breaking.”

Several pleased customers have called the Echo Flex the “perfect size for small places.” While some reviewers say they don’t use it for music due to its limited speaker, they praise the device for being ideal for hallways and tinier rooms.

Interested? Be sure to grab the Flex while it’s 48 percent off right now.
