The new Smart Home Consultation services will provide customers with guidance to build the perfect connected home. The Smart Home advisers will go out to the customer’s home to make personalized recommendations and demonstrate Internet-connected products, including Amazon’s Echo, Dot and Tap.
The free in-home consultation is available in San Diego, California; San Francisco, California; Los Angeles, California; Portland, Oregon, San Jose, California; and Seattle, Washington.
Amazon continues to push its Alexa virtual personal assistant and the services will be the key to help Amazon reach a broader audience. American tech companies are battling against each other to reach a dominant level, with Amazon in the lead.
The Alexa automated-voice service is already used in thousands of third-party Smart gadgets. The technology is alluring to consumers, because it offers hand-free control, with the ability to get on a personal level with the connected devices. Alexa empowers users to control Smart thermostats, garage doors, lighting fixtures, speakers and appliances. Alexa was a big hit at CES 2017, drawing attention from patrons and developers.
The advisers are not contractors, but Amazon staffers that have a high level of technology experience and a passion to serve customers.
Appointments can be booked on Amazon’s websites and are absolutely free. According to the online retailer, each consultation will typically last about 45 minutes.
