Amazon.com Partnering With Tile, Level For New Sidewalk Features

05/07/2021 13:14

05:10 PM EDT, 05/07/2021 (MT Newswires) -- Amazon.com (AMZN) said Friday it is partnering with tracking device company Tile and smart lock provider Level to introduce new features for Sidewalk, a neighborhood network designed to make devices work better.

"Tile will join Sidewalk to help you find your lost items, and Level will work with Sidewalk to conveniently control your smart locks from anywhere in the world," Amazon said in a statement.

The collaboration will also see Sidewalk boosting Tile's in-home finding experience using Alexa. Tile will join Amazon Sidewalk beginning June 14.

The collaboration with Level will allow users to control their locks in the Ring and Level apps without needing to be in Bluetooth range of their mobile device.

The announcement comes after Apple (AAPL) launched tracking devices called AirTag in April.

Amazon also introduced a new pilot program with CareBand, which has created a wearable technology to improve the quality of life for people living with dementia.
