Amazon.com, the online retail giant, is selling an electric fireplace to help its customers adjust to the cold winter weather.
The company is offering customers an extra $50 per month to install the new electric fireplace that includes a remote control and a 30-minute video tutorial.
Amazon’s website lists the installation as part of a new service called Amazon Lighting, and it says the “Remote Lighting System” can “provide instant, personalized lighting in a home for any occasion.”
The fireplace is powered by a 12-volt, 18-volt battery that is connected to the wall by a USB cable.
A timer on the remote controls how often the remote is turned on and off, and the user can set timers for various times of the day, like a light at 6 p.m. and a light when the temperature drops below minus 30 degrees.
The remote is designed to look like an old-fashioned wooden fireplace with a built-in thermometer.
It can be purchased at Amazon for $299.99.
The $50 price tag for the new model isn’t necessarily an issue, as the price of the $150 Amazon Fire TV Stick is roughly the same as the $250 Fire TV, but the new product will come with an additional $25 credit toward the price tag.
The Amazon Echo, which is powered solely by Amazon Alexa, will be the new Echo Show.
This new TV will come standard with Alexa and can play the same channel list as the Fire TV.
