The creator of The Spot outlet hanger for the Amazon Echo Dot, that I posted about last month, has come out with his second product. If you want a more professional look when mounting the Echo Dot to a wall or ceiling, then you should take a look at the Flush Dot Mount. It’s a perfectly sized pocket that gets recessed in your wall to hold an Echo Dot cleanly flush. This is obviously a bigger commitment than the outlet hanger, since you have to cut a 3 5/8 inch hole in your drywall, but the end result is a much cleaner appearance. The mount comes with a 10 foot USB cable so you can power the Echo Dot from inside your wall. The easiest way would probably be to run the cable through the wall to an outlet in your attic or basement. To thank AFTVnews and Reddit visitors for making his first product a hit, the creator tells me he is selling the Flush Dot Mount at an introductory price of $14.99 for the next few days.
Wow, that’s interesting.
Can only speak for myself… but with the amount of times I have to “reset” (power off/power on) my Echo devices, this looks to be more of a hassle than it’s worth for a cleaner “look”. I guess you could wire it to a “switch”, but still… more work. Really wish Echo/Echo Dot could/would cycle itself if it losses it’s Wifi connection.
Connect it to a Wemo or TP-Link smart switch and then use another Echo to toggle it off and on :-P j/k
This is certainly not for everyone. Here is what it looks like putting the Dot into it: https://www.instagram.com/p/BV7eJW9hWgd/
maybe incomparable with wifi router? i have 3 echos. ive never rebooted any of them.
Me neither. Ive got 2. Only time I need to physically touch the echo is if my kid pushes the buttons.
Of course that wouldn’t apply here because it still provides access to the top.
Interesting for anyone that live in US, everywhere else in the world people build their houses from brick an d concrete, so no much use of this unless you want to hammer you wall to install this.
looks a lot nicer than the urinal puck holder thats for sure, i like it
but aren’t the bottom speaker grill vent holes going to be covered up inside the wall?
can’t imagine it will sound the same mounted like this
and also side mount in general defeats the purpose of the far field microphone design so i guess if you only want short field mic and muffled audio this would be ok
I have searched on the web I live in the U.K. But I only see it on Amazon,com, is this the case
I emailed the company. They are shipping to UK on friday from amazon if not you can email them and they will ship to you via raising paypal invoice.
Is this item available in the UK?
