Mount Alexa Dot on a Wall and Out of Harm’s Way

Alexa is a staple companion around our house. We have both the Echo and the Dot, installed – of course – in separate rooms. I wrote recently about a couple products to make Alexa devices more portable (Turn Alexa Echo Dot and Amazon Echo into Portable Devices) and also way to make Alexa better match your home décor (Make Your Alexa Dot Work with Your Décor). The portable aspect for the Alexa Dot device really comes in handy, allowing us to skip purchasing yet another Dot device and instead just move it from room to room where Alexa is needed.

But, what if you don’t need the portability of the Dot and instead want to make the device a more permanent fixture or at least give it a permanent place in a room? Or, what if you simply want to get the Dot up out of the way from getting knocked around and potentially damaged?

There is one solution (so far) that allows you to accomplish this feat. FitSand makes a wall mount for Alexa Dot devices. You install the mount on the wall and then can just slide the Dot device in and out of the mount at will.

The mount is available from Amazon for around $10: FitSand Speaker Stand Guard Holder Wall Mount for Echo Dot
