It’s not the Jetsons, but it is a robot named Astro

  • Astro uses advanced navigation technology, called Intelligent Motion, to find its way around your home and go where you need it. When you’re not using Astro, it will hang out close by at the ready.
  • Remotely send Astro to check on specific rooms, people, or things. Plus, get alerts if Astro detects an unrecognized person or certain sounds when you’re away. Get push notifications from the Alexa app when Astro detects certain sounds like glass breaking, or smoke or carbon monoxide alarms.
  • Astro can follow you with entertainment or find you to deliver calls, messages, timers, alarms or reminders. Get your favorite Alexa features like news, entertainment, and routines — delivered right to you. Enable Amazon Kids on Astro for free parental controls, kid-friendly Alexa responses and more. On a video call, Astro can move with you, keeping you in frame. Create a visual ID to have Astro recognize you and bring you something, like a beverage.
  • The Alexa Together subscription (coming soon) allows you to remotely care for aging loved ones, giving you peace of mind while helping them live independently. Set up reminders, manage shopping lists, receive activity alerts, and more.
  • Astro protects your privacy by allowing you to turn off mics, cameras and motion with one press of a button and use the Astro app to set out of bounds zones to let Astro know where it’s not allowed to go. Learn more about privacy.
  • Astro is customizable with compatible products … it comes with a detachable cup holder and can carry other items (sold separately) like a Ziploc container, the OMRON blood pressure monitor, and a Furbo Dog Camera that tosses treats to your pet.
  • Astro cannot go up or down stairs.
