Amazon has just announced its new “PawnShop,” a home automation product that it says will allow you to “see and control your entire house from the comfort of your own home.”
Amazon says that it will make “pawns” out of all sorts of appliances, from thermostats to refrigerators to dishwashers.
You can choose which appliances you want to control with your voice, and you can even turn off some of the appliances.
Amazon also says that you can “lock down” certain rooms in your house so that they won’t be controlled by the PawnShop.
It’s not clear if Amazon will offer a Pawn Shop with the new “Project Titan” software, but it does offer a “home automation app” that can be used for that purpose.
We’ve reached out to Amazon for more information, but we’ll update this post with any new information we receive.
The Amazon Pawnshop is not available to purchase yet, but Amazon’s website promises that it’s “coming soon.”
