The new Echo Hub is coming soon to Australia

Following the announcement of the Emho Hub, Amazon’s first Alexa-enabled smart home control panel, late last year, we’re pleased to announce the all-new device is available now across Australia. The Echo Hub has an 8-inch touch-enabled display and is designed to make it easy to organise and control the smart home devices in your home—like security cameras, lights, locks, plugs, blinds, and thermostats.

Key features of the device include:

  • A customisable dashboard for grouping devices, starting a Routine or organising widgets. See all of your routines on one screen from the left-side panel and initiate them with a tap, or by asking Alexa – for example, a routine which simultaneously locks the doors, dims the lights, and adjusts the thermostat.
  • The ability to view multiple camera feeds from your security cams or doorbell.
  • Adaptive content, which automatically transitions from a screen with a clock and photo display, to the customisable smart home control screen through infrared technology which detects user proximity.
  • A built-in smart home hub, which means Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Thread, and Matter devices can sync seamlessly, allowing you to control compatible devices, such as lights, switches, and plugs.
  • The ability to play music directly from your Echo Hub or connect your preferred speakers to control audio throughout your home.
  • And, for further personalisation, the option to display curated collections—including new video backgrounds or personal photos.

As with all Echo devices, the Echo Hub has been designed with customer privacy in mind and includes multiple layers of privacy controls. The device includes a microphone on/off button, and customers have full control over their voice recordings and can view, hear, or delete them at any time.

The Echo Hub is AU$329 and is available now from Amazon.com.au and leading retailers including JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks and Bunnings, alongside a range of accessories designed to help the Echo Hub fit seamlessly into customers’ homes, also available via Amazon.com.au.
