The Amazon event held on September 25 was the occasion for the presentation of a long line of smart devices that are added to the already large Amazon Alexa ecosystem. Many new products in the Echo line are already available for pre-order also in Italy, but unfortunately for us most of the hardware just presented will not arrive, at least at the moment, on our market. Here's what Amazon news we will miss.
ECO SHOW 8
The latest addition to the Echo Show family is the 8-inch smart display, with HD resolution, which offers powerful sound and an integrated camera. It will have a cost of 129 dollars, available already at pre-order on the USA catalog, with the first shipments to be delivered for the Christmas period.
Announced several months ago, Amazon today presented the smart microwave oven, with features such as convection cooking and air fryer. Obviously it is controlled by voice, and has a function called "scan to cook". available for pre-order for $ 249. Each smart oven comes with an Echo Dot included in the price.
Stick-up Cam a camera to be placed inside the smart home, which can work both inside and outside. It can be powered by a battery, a power outlet or even solar panels, and offers 1080p HD video resolution, with motion detection and night vision.
At his side, also presented an indoor camera, that is a cheaper version of the Ring Stick-Up Cam In "Home" mode, he stops recording. Already available for $ 59.99. These products are also likely to arrive in our country.
Retrofit Alarm Kit
Together with the cameras, Amazon has presented a hub that allows Stick-Up cameras and the indoor camera to operate with the Ring product infrastructure already present in the home. The hub will cost $ 199.
These are Amazon's wireless headsets, designed for a full Alexa experience, which can be managed without being touched. Each headset has two external microphones and an internal microphone that work together to reduce ambient noise. They are equipped with Bose Active Noise Reduction technology.
In this case, these are glasses with directional speakers that allow you to interact with Alexa, without disturbing the surrounding people. You can decide whether to turn off the microphone at any time. They weigh just 31 grams, do not have a camera or display, work in conjunction with the smartphone and are controlled by voice.
Amazon also presents its titanium ring, which is presented to us as a mine of "information at your fingertips". It has microphones that are activated when a button is pressed, and can return tactile feedback for notifications.
Amazon has announced a new secure wireless standard called Amazon Sidewalk, a low bandwidth protocol designed to power ultra-low power devices and connect them over long distances. The first device that uses this new standard is a connected collar, called Ring Fetch, designed to allow you to track your dog, allowing the user to receive notifications when he leaves a certain area. It will hit the market next year.
