The Best Place for Your Echo Point Is Actually on the Ceiling

The Echo Dot’s small design allows it to be placed almost anywhere, but in most cases it will probably end up on a shelf or table (I keep mine next to my TV and plug it into a large set of speakers). However, the best place for a mini smart speaker might actually be above your head, as one creative commentator Kinja Deals points out .

After deciding to install the Echo Dot on the ceiling, the installation process was relatively straightforward. Commenter ImALeafOnTheWind explains that they used an ungrounded outlet from Amazon in conjunction with a small adapter with enough power for Dot. They also used USB to a rectangular micro-usb connector that came in a washer-shaped speaker ring mount box. Finally, they finished off the whole thing with white vinyl decal to match the Echo Dot with the white ceiling.

The best part about this setup (besides being ridiculously cool) is that the Echo Dot seems to be better at picking up voice commands from the ceiling than anywhere else in the room. And if you’re worried about the Bluetooth connection, ImALeafOnTheWind notes that it works fine too.
