Move Your Amazon Echo Now if It's Sitting Here

There are four areas you should keep your Alexa speakers away from. Trust us, we've got some better options.

This story is part of Home Tips, CNET’s collection of practical advice for getting the most out of your home, inside and out.

Your Amazon Echo speaker can assist you with many tasks, from setting up your preferred music streaming service to updating your Alexa settings without using the Alexa app. What it doesn’t do is tell you the safest area in your home to place your smart speakers and smart displays. You’re probably wondering if the location really matters as long as you can give Alexa a command from most areas of your house. The answer is yes.

Placing your Alexa device in certain areas of your house could risk your privacy or even damage your Echo. For example, did you know intruders can access your smart home device from outside if it’s placed too close to a window? 

Keep reading to find out where you shouldn’t place your Echo devices and the best spots for them. For more Amazon Echo tips, check out these five useful features you should try today.

1. Don’t put Alexa near a toilet

Placing an Echo near your toilet is gross. Think of all the germs that linger around that area — even in superclean bathrooms. However, if you must have an Echo device in your bathroom (and, OK, we do see the appeal), try placing it as far away from the toilet as possible. 

If you can, mount it on a wall with a sticky strip or a nail. Just make sure it’s secure so it doesn’t fall, and remember to place it near an outlet so you can plug it in. Also, keep it away from the bathtub (duh!). You wouldn’t want to fry your Echo. 

Don’t even think about putting your Echo near the bathtub! Chris Monroe/CNET

2. Don’t put Alexa near a sink

If you’re trying to drown out the sounds of Alexa’s voice, then, by all means, place your expensive Echo by a sink. However, if you want to keep it intact, never place it anywhere near water.

You don’t want to risk your kitchen water sprayer going haywire and soaking your Echo device, or a tall device getting tipped into the sink. Instead, place it on a different counter, like a kitchen island, or tuck it into a corner where it’s farther from splattering spaghetti sauce and water spray. It’ll stay cleaner and might sound better, too.

3. Don’t put Alexa by a window

Keep your Echo away from all the windows in your house. The location could potentially give anyone from the outside access to your Echo, and that could give access to your other smart home devices. For example, if your car is connected to your smart speaker, someone may be able to unlock and start it.

4. Don’t put Alexa under your TV

How many commercials are out there that say, “Alexa, play…” and activate your Echo? Or if the TV says anything that sounds a lot like “Alexa,” take a guess at what’s going to activate. 

Not only does this interrupt the show you’re watching, but it also starts recording what’s said after the command. So if you’re having a private conversation and Alexa kicks in, you’re risking your privacy. Placing it on a side table makes more sense and is more likely to keep the voice assistant quiet until you make a command.

So, where should you place your Amazon Echo?

  • In the corner of your living room (away from windows)
  • A place where it’s easily visible to you, so you can see when the light ring lights up
  • On your bedside table
  • On the edge of your kitchen counter — far, far away from your sink
  • On a mantle or shelf
  • Mounted on a wall that’s not facing a window
