are you ready for new/updated Amazon devices… then this event is for you…
As a lot of people are using Fire tablets as dashboards for SmartThings, it will be interesting to see that wall monted echo with 15 inch screen.
- Amazon revealed a home assistant robot, called Astro
- Amazon announced its biggest smart display yet, the $249.99 Echo Show 15.
- Amazon’s new Echo Glow is a videoconferencing device designed for kids.
- Amazon announced a new Fitbit-like fitness band with a color AMOLED display,
- Amazon announced a new Smart Thermostat that works with Alexa
Amazon added package delivery detection to Ring doorbells but they can’t tell me why my subscribe and save deliveries keep getting lost in transit. 3rd time this year and they have no clue.
A robot without hands, or at least a hook grabber, is missing a whole bunch of potential use cases. So I definitely won’t be ordering one of those this time around.
The ring alarm pro system with built in eero (although notably not built in eero pro, which is annoying just from a naming standpoint) is interesting, and the ability to add battery capability so it could run for about two days, is also interesting. The verge article has tons of details, so that’s a good place to start reading.
