SEATTLE -- September 3, 2014

(NASDAQ:AMZN) – Amazon.com today announced that it offers a larger selection
of connected products than any other store in its Home Automation store, which
brings together thousands of items in a one-stop destination for research and
shopping. Since launching the Home Automation store a year ago, Amazon has
introduced hundreds of new innovative solutions, including exclusive offerings
from up-and-coming start-ups, to help customers automate everyday tasks and
remotely manage their homes.

“Home automation is on the minds of a lot of customers, as they want to take
advantage of the latest technology for their homes. Deciding which products
best suit their needs can feel overwhelming, so we’ve worked to simplify that
process,” said Jim Adkins, Vice President for Home Improvement at Amazon. “We
created buying guides, educational videos, and authoritative product pages so
customers can find the right items – whether they are looking to monitor their
home while at work or on vacation, manage their energy consumption via their
mobile devices, or create the perfect ambiance for a family movie night. We
have nearly doubled our selection of home automation products in the last
year, and will continue to add to our catalog so customers can benefit from
these innovations that make every day more convenient.”

To help customers find the products best for them, the Home Automation store
offers a series of quick educational videos highlighting common scenarios,
suggestions on how to create and manage an in-home network, and buying guides
for popular home automation categories. To ensure compatibility, customers can
shop by communication protocol or by controller. In addition, customers can
use the new Solutions Center which includes product recommendations for a
range of everyday challenges.
