Good point here by the @latimes . And Amazon is among the first case studies for the power of the ecosystem, at least in Tech Land. @Apple and @Google right next to it on our metaphorical bookshelf, of course. Slightly different riffs on a similar theme.  http://www.latimes.com/business/technology/la-fi-tn-amazon-google-apple-smart-home-20180301-story.html 
Amazon's got smart home services on the brain here, not just a hardware play. If I'm ADT, or Vivint, or Comcast, or  http://Alarm.com , I'm paying a lot closer attention to Amazon than before.  https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/27/business/dealbook/amazon-buys-ring.html 
At this price point, they'll soon be everywhere. But I question if the low price will foster loyalty or just simply make smart home cameras more affordable to eventually put in a junk drawer.  https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2018/2/19/17029516/wyzecam-v2-security-camera-price 
@seth_ulinski @johngaudreau03 @Bmarch63 Dibs on starting a band named "5 Feet of Dynamite". Better name than these guys. You may recognize the singer. Maybe.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNfomuY2ysg
