I hope someone can advise. I have Sonos speakers in every room on all 3 floors of my house. Do I need to buy 3 x Amazon Dot devices, i.e. 1 for each floor? Thanks

Technically, you only need one in order to integrate Sonos and Alexa. However, that doesn't mean one echo dot is going to hear you wherever you are on all 3 floors. How many you need really depends on the specific layout of your house. Perhaps a good rule of thumb would be one echo dot her sonos zone. It's probably a good idea to start off with one echo dot, in your most commonly used space, to see how you like it, and get a better idea of how many you need/want.

I personally have 5, in 2300 sqft home. One in each bedroom and one in the main living area. However, I use them for smart home features more than sonos control. If it was just sonos control, I probably would only have 2. And I have 4 sonos zones....maybe my rule of thumb suggestion isn't that good.
