My Echo dot had just arrived and I am itching to try it out.
I don't care about the location services, my Google Home takes care of all those. Timezone would be good though. I just want it to have a play with the automation side of things.
I have downloaded the iOS app onto our old iPad 2 via my US ITunes account. Before I light the dot up for the first time I have a couple of quick questions.
Do I need a US Amazon account? I have a NZ one already, do I need a US one as well to make the echo work?
Will the echo work 'out of the box' or will there be some hacking (root level) required? Just to achieve "Alexa, turn the wemo switch on" level of stuff.
