Cheapest tablet for smart home control

337 133 November 24, 2017 at 09:51 AM
Any suggestions for a decent cheap tablet (less than $50) that I'll be using for my smart home control? I know the HD7 is $29.99 at Amazon and HD8 refurbished for $29.99 right now but I'm not quite sure if Amazon's forked Android works well for what I want it to do, like compatibility with all the apps I use for smart home control with my phone. Thanks so much in advance!

What smart home apps are you using?
I have a few things I'm using with 3 Amazon Echo's being the center of it all. Several LIFX bulbs, Ecobee3 smart thermostat, August Home Lock (with the keypad and connect), Logitech Harmony Elite, and several TP-Link smartplugs. I'm planning to either try Imperihome or ActionTiles on the tablet I'm getting.

Yeah those Kindles should be plenty fine for you.
Great! Grabbed a Fire HD 8 used for 33 bucks shipped. I missed the woot deal for a refurbished one trying to look for other viable tablets. I hope I don't have to do a lot of workarounds to make it work though. Thanks!
