Amazon announced more details on its Sidewalk network, its low-power and low-bandwidth wireless protocol for connecting smart home devices. Its Echo and Tile devices will now become Bluetooth bridges for the Sidewalk network as soon as later this year, and the Ring Floodlight and Spotlight Cams will also be part of Amazon's network. The hope is to convince neighbors to connect all their smart home devices to give the Amazon network more visibility.
