WHAT iHome Voice iGV1 with Google Assistant

COST $139.99

AVAILABLE FROM ihomeaudio.com

WHAT'S HOT With the far-field voice activation technology built into the iGV1, you can give it commands from the other side of the room. The voice-activated Bluetooth bedside speaker system has everything in a nice compact body. For most, the clock is critical and the front-facing display will always be right on with the time sync via Network Time Protocol for quick clock setting. The dimmable display shows multiple alarm settings and weather. Below the front facing display are the speakers, protected by mesh cloth covering.
With your existing Wi-Fi linked to the speaker system, connections can be made to music streaming services and other smart home devices. This enables you to command the voice assistant to turn lights on or off and even get your morning coffee brewing. Music can be sent to the iGV1 via Bluetooth and there's a single 1-amp USB port for charging.
Controls for music selection, volume, Bluetooth connections and triggering the voice assistant are all easily accessed on top.

WHAT'S NOT Even at its lowest setting, the clock display may be too bright for some people.
