Amazon Sidewalk expands beyond homes to build a commercial internet of things

My list


Amazon Sidewalk is a long-range, low-power IoT network that uses Bluetooth and LoRa radios, which are built into Echo and Ring devices, to connect devices with Amazon’s cloud when they’re beyond the reach of traditional home networks. The pitch was meant to leverage the connected gadgets in peoples’ homes to keep things like Tile trackers and outdoor smart lights online, no matter where they might be. But relying on homes that opt in creates some obvious coverage gaps in rural areas, industrial regions and other places where the sidewalk ends.
