The Amazon Echo Dot 4th generation comes with an amazing array of skills and intelligence. You can surely execute a lot with this smart little assistant, from keeping track of your shopping list to controlling your smart home devices. The small size means that you can keep it anywhere, as long as it's connected to a power source and has access to the internet. However, if you are looking to optimize your room's space, it's best to mount it on a wall bracket or a wall mount. After all, space optimization is the key to a well-managed home.
Apart from space management, wall mounts for devices like the Amazon Echo Dot reduce the chances of accidental falls and drops. All you need is clever wire management in place, and you should be sorted.
Read on to find some of our recommendations for the best wall mounts for Amazon Echo Dot (4th gen). But before that,
Echogear's Outlet Hanger is a clever accessory that takes care of both the Dot and the power cable. It's a small device with a holder at the bottom and a power outlet at the top. All you need to do is fit the Dot in the holder, tuck the extra length of the power cable, and plug the hanger into a power outlet.
The holder fits the 4th generation Echo Dot like a glove and mitigates the fear of falls and drops. As noted earlier, the huge power adapter fits right in along with the wire, which takes away cable management's pain. There's no additional hassle of drilling holes since you need to plug the accessory into power outlets.
But at the end of the day, the outlet hanger is a little large. So if the power sockets are arranged horizontally in your house, you might want to skip this one as it may block the adjacent sockets.
We have another Echogear mount on this list - Echogear Wall Mount. Compared to the one above, it's sleek and discreet and doesn't require as much space for installation as the one above. It's just a holder you can either screw to walls or tape onto walls using 3M adhesive tape.
The best part is that you can also attach it to overhead cabinets and shelves. And that's not all. The base of this holder can also be rotated.
Again, the open design means that you will be able to access all the buttons without any issues. The base comes with ridges inside to tuck & thread the extra length of the cable. Though it's a time-consuming process, the good thing is that it's a one-time operation. However, if you have the Echo Dot with a clock face, you might want to skip this mount.
Lastly, since this mount comes under the Made for Amazon program, you can rest assured about the size.
The Delidigi Echo Dot Wall Mount is a simple and straightforward accessory. It's shaped like a ledge, with the outer portion holding the Echo Dot. If you are looking for a more permanent fixture on your walls, then this is the one for you. At the same time, the open design means that you will be able to see the time on the Echo Dot.
Like its counterpart above, this one also has space to wind the power cable so that minimum wire/cable is visible on the walls. But at the end of the days, it's just a ledge and if the power outlet is far away, you might want to get some cable sleeves to hide the cable.
Nevertheless, it's a sturdy accessory and can easily hold the weight of the small Echo Dot. And the white color gives it a neutral look.
It has a slight limitation though. The company ships black-colored screws with this wall mount and the color disparity tends to spoil the look of the mount. Should you buy this mount, do remember to get a couple of white screws as well.
Matone's wall mounts for the Echo Dot are a small yet highly sturdy accessory that can take the weight of most devices up to 15lbs. It's small and compact, and more importantly, stable. Like its counterparts above, it also has a small nook for storing the long power cable.
The good part is that the installation is plain and simple, and you need to drill the screws in and then assemble the two pieces.
The Matone Small Wall Shelf is versatile. The flat base can hold cellphones, baby monitors, and other smart assistants as well. You have to make sure that the base of the device fits the ledge properly.
This mount comes highly recommended from its user base primarily because of its stable base and its multi-purpose use.
The highlight of the Kovake wall mount is its minimalistic design. It's a simple plate that holds the Echo Dot in position and that's about it. Like the Echogear accessory, you can either opt to install it using screws or choose to stick it via adhesive tape.
The base at the center comes with ridges to tuck the extra length of the cable. Simultaneously, there's a handy slit at the back of the mount to route the power cable. The good thing is that the slit at the base will allow you to see Dot's notification LED.
It's sturdy and stable, and the small gap at the base will prevent the Echo Dot from slipping off.
The minimalistic design makes it a great accessory for kitchens, bathrooms, or even besides the bedside table.

Over the years, Alexa has improved a lot and can take care of many commands. The good part is that even if you are not using it for news (or jotting down your shopping list), you can use it to listen to songs and podcasts. So if you are in the mood to permanently fix the Echo Dot to your wall, check how the device sounds at the maximum volume.
