Opinion: Slashing prices is part of Amazon's plan to take over your home

Smart home devices have been around for almost a decade, but when it comes to uptake consumers are proving slow to embrace an automated home. According to Statista, only around 43% percent of US households own at least one smart home device, up from 33% in 2019. 

However, it appears that Amazon is looking to ramp up adoption, in part by increasing its range of smart home products, which started with smart speakers and smart displays and has since expanded to include video doorbells and home security cameras (through the Ring and Blink brands it acquired) as well as smart plugs and now smart thermostats. We’re sure it won’t be long before Amazon-branded smart lights appear. 

However, Amazon is also offering substantial price cuts across its smart home device range to make them more attractive to consumers. The Amazon Smart Thermostat has only been available for two months, and wasn’t discounted in the Black Friday sales, but has now been reduced by 20%.

This is certainly a savvy move by Amazon when consumers across the globe are seeing energy prices rising and are looking for simple ways to reduce their consumption – something a smart thermostat can help with – and it’ll help to get more of the company’s devices into more of our homes, with Alexa ruling the roost 

So how long before our households are filled with Amazon smart home devices and Alexa rules the roost? It may be sooner than you think.
