I personally recommend the Sonos One as a personal Alexa/ Amazon music device; the sound is pretty great and If you have it paired with the rest of a Sonos setup, she can play across all of the speakers. Of course, the One doesn't have a camera or all the features this Onkyo speaker has for indoor monitoring, so if that is your thing: ignore this suggestion.
Just a heads up, the app kept failing to log in to add my regular Amazon account and the Alexa account. You have to keep mashing the spot where the "Allow" button will pop up to try and force it to go forward before it either pops you back to login or it crashes.
Does this need a subscription or can it just be used as a "live view" camera. Like for checking in on pets

Just got mine today from the last drop. It says you can only record video to their cloud servers which you have to pay for after the 30 day trial period.
Is this still shipping on time? Estimated shipping date is today, Sept 10th.
Warning to any Australian purchasers. The Toshiba app which controls this device is not available on the Australian Apple App Store. Not an Android user so I can’t speak for availability in AU there.
This has one review on Amazon so far. The review is pretty thorough, describing the sound quality as similar to an Echo Dot. A response from Pioneer & Onkyo USA explains that the focus of this device is more on home automation than on sound quality. The rep explains, "Audio is not the primary focus of this device, home monitoring is. It monitors temp, humidity, lumens as well as motion." He then continues to describe several use cases for these sensors.

Anyone considering purchasing this device should do so with the intention of leveraging its sensors and home automation, not its sound quality. In spite of the Onkyo name, the sound quality is not an upgrade over the Echo.

Is it just me that thinks it's strange for an A/V company to put the speaker quality dead last in the design? The dot's sound is ok because it's tiny and super cheap, and if you need better, you can hook it up to something. That is your compromise. In a bigger device, I expect bigger sound.
