An Echo Dot can serve as your wake-up alarm all by itself, but iHome has created the Bedside Stereo Speaker that makes your Dot look like a regular alarm clock. The Dot (generation 1 or 2) connects to the iHome via AUX cable to play all audio, so you can listen to the music Alexa plays for you through the stereo speakers. It also powers the Dot, so you’ll only need one power cable. The iHome has a dimmable digital display, so you can see the time at a glance in the middle of the night without having to ask Alexa for the time, but you’ll still use Alexa commands to set your alarm times. There’s a USB port so you can charge up your phone as you sleep, too. The iHome Bedside Speaker for Amazon Echo Dot measures 6.7″ X 6.7″ X 2.13″, and it’s available in black only for $49.99 at Bed, Bath, and Beyond or black ($49.77) or white ($49.95) at Amazon.
