For those that want to take Alexa to the next step beyond just simple queries for dead celebrities, news pulses, show times, and weather reports, Amazon has launched a special consultation service where experts will evaluate your home and provide product recommendations.
Type in your zip code to schedule what Amazon calls an “exact appointment” (if your location is currently participating), and a consultant will show up and give you live demos of vetted products and make recommendations based on various factors. Not to be mistaken for a general appointment range like the cable TV company provides, when you schedule a specific time the Amazon consultant will be there. And, Amazon states that the consultant is an actual Amazon employee – not a contractor.
Each Smart Home Consultation appointment is a personalized experience and typically lasts about 45 minutes. Your expert will start by learning more about the things you care about most – whether that’s saving on your utility bill or automating your home so you can get time back. Your expert will perform a WIFI assessment to make sure you have good signal strength throughout your home and help troubleshoot any issues. Based on your interests, they’ll demo and let you test drive popular products and voice-control through Amazon Alexa. Your expert will recommend smart home solutions and create a personalized list of smart home products to make it easy for you to get started.
