Amazon Alexa can now be used outdoors. This original Echo Dot (4th generation) was modified by Proofion and is now suitable for outdoor use.
Amazon’s Alexa made voice assistants salon-ready in our four walls. Now Echo can also be used in the garden. To make this possible, Proofion dismantles an original fourth generation Echo Dot and treats all components with a high-tech surface coating. Thus, not only the electronics, but also the housing (including decorative cover), and the loudspeaker are optimally protected from moisture and corrosion.
Pool owners will love this smart and weatherproof voice assistant. While you swim your tracks, you can now also control the appropriate music.
Optimum protection against moisture and corrosion
- Proofion dismantles an original Echo Dot (4th Gen.) and coats the circuit boards, loudspeakers, housing (incl. Decor / fabric) with a high-tech surface coating.
- This means that the Echo Dot is optimally protected against moisture and corrosion and can therefore be installed outdoors.
- The external power supply unit and the connection cables are not coated and must be protected from moisture, for example with a waterproof flush-mounted socket or a wall socket for outdoor use.

- Despite our modification and coating, the modified Echo Dot 4 is not waterproof! The components we coat are water-resistant and water-repellent. This also applies to the fabric cover of the Echo Dot. Due to the large pores of the material, however, water can still get into the housing and change the sound image through water on the loudspeaker. For this reason, the modified Echo Dot may only be set up or mounted in positions protected from rain (e.g. under a canopy). As with any electronic device, heat can damage electronics. Do not expose the Echo Dot to direct sunlight.
- In the video we show how we put the modified Echo Dot in water. This only serves to demonstrate the effectiveness of our coating to you. Do not do this under any circumstances! Caution: tension! This can be life-threatening!
