Home Security — Astro moves autonomously around your house, can monitor specific areas, and provide a live feed of rooms through the Astro app.
Elderly Care — For those with older relatives, they can ask Astro to set and deliver reminders. When used with Alexa Together, family members can set up routines and receive alerts.
Embed with existing services — Astro works with Ring and can patrol your home when you’re out, investigate a detected event, and save video clips to Ring cloud storage.
Aside from some new features and capabilities that allow for a personalized home companion experience, Astro seeks to further emphasize the existing features of your smart home. It brings all the benefits of Alexa, supports Visual ID (a computer vision feature that will allow house members to teach Astro to recognize them), and works in conjunction with Ring Protect Pro, a new subscription service from the home security offshoot.
