Amazon Alexa ‘Command Center’ To Control All Smart Home Devices
Reports have surfaced that Amazon is quietly working on a new device that will potentially act as the “command center” for the home. The device is expected to be a wall-mountable unit. It is expected to have a 10- or 13-inch screen that will help the consumer understand what is happening in the house. The data is shown on a dashboard. Historically, none of the smart home speakers or displays has been shipped with an option of wall mounts though there are third-party accessories that help with this.
Users would be able to control smart home devices, play music and videos, video-chat on a built-in camera, and communicate with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant.
Amazon’s wall mounting option gives users the flexibility to save some space. The device is being reportedly engineered by Amazon Lab126, the San Francisco Bay Area research and development team. Other wall-mountable devices are already in the market, such as the Echo Wall Clock. The price and release date are tentative, but the Amazon Echo command center could begin retailing for between $200 and $250 in late 2021 or early 2022.
