The new Amazon/Lennar Connected Home is now open to tour near Atlanta. As people become more and more used to having Alexa in their life, even while “she” is maniacally laughing unprovoked, it was only a matter of time before we saw a true test home.
Some of the home features include smart locks, video doorbells, Echos, Dash buttons and media devices, most of which are all controlled from Lennar’s app. Sounds great!
Inman went to test it out a few weeks back, and it looks like there are still a few hurdles to overcome. However, after addressing a few app bugs, making a few tweaks to the presentation and a solid site audit is done (yoga mats in plastic still, ahem), it will be something to behold.
It feels like maybe a few too many toys for my lifestyle, but it’s a show home, right? Overall it’s pretty impressive and offers some intriguing options, if you’re not worried about Bezos knowing everything you do.
