Origin Acoustics is adding a wall-mount for the Amazon Echo Dot to its Valet system — the Dot Wall Mount. It will debut at CEDIA Expo. This is a simple way to integrate the Dot for music distribution and automation.
In this offering is a clever mounting system that hides the Dot behind a speaker grille in the ceiling clearing it from countertops and shelves in the living space. The new offering allows dealers to add profitable loudspeakers and amplification.
With speakers already installed in remote rooms and Cat5 cable attached to these aging keypads, a quick swap to a Dot and the Valet amplifier has no requirement for additional wiring, offering a retrofit opportunity.
This gives the customer voice control, multi-room, multi-source audio and thousands of automation apps, which Amazon refers to as skills.
The Dot wall mount is shipping now for $30 and is here.
