Amazon has announced its first home robot, Astro. The robot serves three primary functions: guard home security, monitor loved ones and offer portable Alexa experience. Like Echo devices, Astro has a microphones/cameras-off button customers can press whenever they want to turn off cameras, mics, and motion. When this button is pressed, Astro cannot move, or capture video or audio, and a dedicated red LED is illuminated to match the red status indicator on screen. It is priced at $999.
