Very Soon Amazon Sidewalk Will Offer Support For Tile Trackers. What Does That Mean For Your Easily Misplaced Items?
News on Amazon’s Sidewalk endeavors had been doing the rounds until now, and they have now finally started to ramp up efforts to establish a long-range wireless network capable of keeping things connected even when they are outside the typical range of home Wi-Fi. People who choose Sidewalk will benefit from keeping their devices regardless of whether they are within range of a proper network.
Amazon is also partnering with CareBand, a line of wearable sensors for people living with dementia, to run a pilot test of Sidewalk-enabled indoor and outdoor tracking, automated analysis of activity patterns and help button functionality.
Though the network is being shared between multiple devices, all the data is being encrypted and none of it will be shared. Data shared over the Sidewalk network is protected with three layers of encryption, only accessible by the devices you choose, and automatically deleted every 24 hours to protect your privacy. You can also disable Sidewalk altogether in the Account Settings section of the Alexa app.
With the launch, Amazon is aiming to include the option for devices such as Ring’s line of outdoor lights and cameras, the Level smart lock, and the Tile’s Bluetooth tracker tags. Most of these devices sit outside your home and thus becomes a good product to market. It is expected that Amazon Sidewalk will strengthen the Tile’s finding power and help people find things more easily.
