Three properties of Bournemouth Beach Lodges have been kitted out with Amazon’s smart tech home, including smart kettles, robot vacuum cleaners and home assistant. This is the first time they have been upgraded to include voice tech.
The Echo Show 5 provides recommendations on where to find the best fish and chips while a smarter kettle can be programmed so holiday makers will get their dose of caffeine fix before they start their day.
The properties also feature Alexa smart plugs that turn off the lights using voice commands, a Neato Robotics Botva to clear away sand that visitors trek in from the beach and a Fire TV Stick for some downtime after a long day outdoors.
Chris Saunders, head of operations at BCP Council, said: “We are looking forward to a number of the Bournemouth Beach Lodges being converted into smart spaces. We hope that residents involved in the trial will be even more inspired to explore and experience beautiful Bournemouth and our neighbours Christchurch and Poole.”
