iHome Bedside Stereo for Amazon Echo Dot with Alexa Voice is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great concept but many flaws I've been looking for a dimmable bedside clock alexa/ speaker combo and this one looked like it would fit the bill perfectly. And maybe it will with future firmware updates but right now I'm disappointed. One of my top criteria is for the display to be dimmable - this has a variety of levels sure to please anyone. But you have to mash a bar on top to set the dim level to work for daytime and nighttime. The device has a "Sleep" button which should take care of this but when you press it all the other commands take place but it just ignores the dim setting. Another attractive feature was the smartbuttons on top - if I want the lights to turn off or on I don't always want to have to tell Alexa to do it. But these buttons will only control iHome accessories - they will not trigger an Alexa action which is so shortsighted, may as well call them stupidbuttons. Another unbelievably frustrating limitation is how the device deals with streaming music. You can't launch Spotify by telling Alexa to play Spotify. You have to start Spotify on your phone and output it to the AVS. It gets worse, if you turn the volume down using the buttons on the AVS (like to fall asleep to), it's actually turned the volume way down on your phone so the next day you'll be wondering why you don't hear your phone ring. Very silly. Hopefully they can address some of these quirks via a firmware update.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great but add a feature The iHome is well designed. I would make two suggestions. 1- some way to lower the light intensity even lower. It is still too bright at the lowest setting. 2- the unit is larger than we expected. Try to make it even more compact. Thanks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice alarm clock As far as the alarm clock function goes, this is awesome. It is so nice being able to just say when you want the alarm to go off, without going through all of the complicated buttons of clocks gone by. But as far as compatibility with my actual Amazon Echo units, this fails. It is slow to respond when I say Alexa. When I have other Echo units near each other, only one of them does the actual listening, so that there aren't multiple devices responding... not so much with this alarm clock. It seems to hear us talk from anywhere in the house, and responds about 5 seconds after the Echo does. It doesn't play music everywhere. Occasionally it just comes on, like someone said Alexa, even though nobody did. The blaring alarm sound really wakes you up in the morning! For the price, I wish I would have just gotten another Echo unit, and just used the alarm on my phone. I really thought it would operate the same as my other Echo units, but I had to buy a dot for my bedroom, so it would work with music everywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic speaker with Alexa features Really happy with unit. A small issue setting up with router, but iHome support (Carlos) was terrific. Unit works flawlessly. Still working on setting up all the features, but completely satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound and Great Design! This is such a nice alarm clock. Little tricky to set up but requires a little effort. Sounds way better than average. Bluetooth works perfect. Colors settings are fun to play with. iHome app is decent. Spotify functionality is A+. I don’t utilize the Alexa feature so I can’t really comment there. Setting alarms requires Alexa so there’s that. All around 5 stars compared to other options online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I haven’t explore the features yet except the built-in Alexa which is really cool. The clock/screen is very bright and it helps lit up the room when it’s dark, so it serves as a night light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great IHOME LOVE IT I just purchased this today and already love it. I set it up and asked Alexa to lock my front door. Since I already had my Schlage setup through Alexa it worked perfectly. Now when I am in bed and cant remember if I locked up I just ask Alexa to lock front door. The only thing I dont get is the phone button I tried asking Alexa to dial and it told me it cant yet my Alexa can so not sure why its on there if I cant use it ?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Music for alarm? The clock is nice but I cannot set It up to play music for the alarm, unless you have a paid subscription to Spotify or iheart. I was told prior to purchase you could set up your amazon music for the alarm but that does not seem to be an option, please help!! I do not wish to pay for other music service.
