Inc on Wednesday said it has set up model "smart" homes across the United States for shoppers to experience what it's like for voice aide Alexa to dim the lights, turn on the TV or order more laundry detergent. "The more customers that get educated about smart home, the better it is for everybody".

There are eight flagship Amazon Experience Centers in the U.S. in the six states of Florida, California, Georgia, Washington, Virginia and Texas.

It won't just be Alexa that these model homes show off - Amazon will also be shining the spotlight on Dash Buttons, Fire TVs, and even Amazon Home Services.

The company announced this morning that it's partnering with home-builder Lennar to create model homes - so-called "Amazon Experience Centers" - with Alexa-controlled appliances built-in, with the hopes that the demos convince home owners and home buyers to embed Amazon services into their houses. "There are many people who come by our model home centers, who want to see maybe the decorating ideas we have, maybe the floor plan ideas we have, maybe the home automation stuff that we have".

Serena Williams pulls out of second consecutive tournament
Serena Williams has withdrawn from this month's Italian Open, five days after opting out of the WTA event in Madrid. Last week the 23-time Grand Slam victor pulled out of the Madrid WTA event due to a fever.

An Amazon Echo displays a video feed of the front door on a TV in the living room of an Amazon "experience center" in Vallejo, California, May 8, 2018. "As one of the nation's largest homebuilders, Lennar offers the potential to enable this experience within easy driving distance of millions of customers". Amazon is constantly updating and refining the experience within each model home.

Feeding into this, Amazon is also offering a service whereby you can "recreate" the experience in your own home, allowing you to schedule an in-home visit to guide you through everything you need to know to drag your house out of the 20th century and into the future. Amazon experts are Amazon employees who are specially trained on the latest technology and are passionate about helping customers. "We picked Amazon because of our shared commitment to customers, their Amazon experts across the country, and their ability to connect customers with thousands of service providers through Amazon Home Services".

Amazon Experience Centers are now opening in select communities throughout Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC, with further locations coming soon.

What better way to help would-be customers get on-board with your smart home concepts than to launch model homes that demonstrate all your new-fangled gadgetry?
