Amazon’s list of available Home Services has been steadily expanding ever since they started offering the services two years ago. One of the fastest growing categories is the collection of Smart Home related services, which range from the relatively simple task of setting up a Fire TV to more daunting all day multi-device setups. If the ever-growing market of smart home devices and services is overwhelming, Amazon is offering smart home consultations completely for free.
The free consultations that Amazon is offering are conducted in your home with Amazon employees. These are not random contractors who are going to try to pressure you into buying expensive devices or services. They are handpicked, background-checked, licensed, and certified tech-savvy experts who are just there to give customized recommendations for your specific needs.
The general smart home consultation, which has a nearly perfect 4.9 out of 5 star review rating, is a good place to start if you don’t know where to begin when it comes to home automation and voice control. If you have a more specific idea of what you want, you can select a more focused consultation like lighting, home security, WiFi, sprinklers, and thermostats. All for free.
With these free consultations, an Amazon employed expert will come to your home at a scheduled time between 8am and 8pm. During the 45 minute appointment, they’ll first asses your home WiFi to identify any potential issues and then discuss your needs to recommend products. They’ll even bring smart home products to demo in your home during the consultation.
