Can’t find the remote? We can’t either. But now we don’t have to!

Enter the Fire TV Blaster, a smart home device that instantly adds voice commands to your TV and more. Right now, it’s on sale for only $20—its lowest price ever—at Amazon. That’s over 40 percent off, people.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Instant voice commands

The Fire TV Blaster works with your TV, cable box, audio receivers or soundbar—along with an Echo and Fire TV device—so you can find movies and TV shows faster. Place the device 1 to 2 feet away from your TV, sync it with the Fire TV app and the Fire TV Blaster will connect to your TV instantly—and wirelessly.

You can control volume, turn things on and off and quickly change HDMI inputs with the sound of your voice. No more endlessly trying to find your remote in your couch cushions. Just ask!

This five-star Amazon reviewer loves the Fire TV Blaster's sleep timer feature: “...Everything works perfect! Alexa turns on and off the TV, soundbar, set sleep timer, etc. Bit of a learning curve but now I’ll say it’s definitely worth it! Just being able to say ‘set sleep timer’ is a win for us...”

Fire TV compatible

Meanwhile, the Fire TV Blaster is compatible with just about any Fire TV Stick (second generation and later), Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick Lite and Fire TV (third generation), as well as Echo smart speakers and displays.

At 43 percent off, the Fire TV Blaster is the device to round out your Alexa smart home and entertainment center.

“...The blaster is pretty great—it seems to shoot IR (infrared) beams everywhere: Up and down, back and front, and both sides,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “I was worried because I have a Comcast box in a TV cabinet and an elevated wall mounted TV with a soundbar that sits above the blaster. The blaster is able to send a signal to all devices just fine...”

The reviews quoted above reflect the most recent versions at the time of publication.
