Instead of lurking for the voice command “Alexa”, an echo equipped with Alexagate only reacts to clapping in the hands. Clapping three times causes the seven ultrasound speakers to switch off and the built-in microphones to take commands as usual. Clap again then exits the mode. The device requires a separate power supply.
