Amazon introduces Astro for Business

SEATTLE – Amazon has released Astro for Business, their security solution for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that combines robotics, smart security, and artificial intelligence (AI).

In a release issued by the online retail giant and web service provider, Amazon revealed that customers can tailor Astro for Business with separately sold subscriptions that provide incremental benefits when layered on top of each other. Those include Ring Protect Pro and Astro Secure, a new subscription Amazon is offering with advanced business security features, like smart alerts, custom patrol routes, and scheduled patrols. Customers can also add Virtual Security Guard for additional professional monitoring capabilities.

“Security continues to be a headache for business owners,” said Anthony Robson, head of product for Amazon Astro. “According to the National Retail Federation, businesses have faced losses of nearly $100 billion in 2022. But traditional security solutions can be too static or expensive for what businesses need. We think Astro for Business can help with that. We have been testing Astro in a variety of businesses and have seen firsthand how Astro’s intelligent motion helped provide visibility on blind spots and areas that existing stationary cameras couldn’t see, giving business owners peace of mind because their inventory and property are protected, even when they aren’t there.”

Astro for Business is available for purchase now starting at $2,349.99. Currently the security station is only available in the U.S.
