The Fabriq speaker is on sale for $40 (usually $50) on Amazon today. From my research, it has DLNA and Airplay support, can link up to 10 speakers for multiroom playback, can use Alexa (must push a button to “listen”).
I don’t own any yet, but for the price I think I’ll try two. It looks like another forum member is using them to make status announcements with Smartthings :
Hopefully when mine have arrived maybe some forum members will have chimed in with tips and ideas how to use them to do cool things with Smartthings in the house. (I’d like to announce home monitor status changes…)
