On June 8, 2021 Skynet went LIVE. If you have an Amazon Alexa Echo or an Amazon Ring Camera then your devices have now been recruited with a default opt-in to support the Amazom SideWalk.
Now a secret network has been enabled that powers devices on the steets without the need for a Wifi connection or an Internet connection. Amazon Echos and Rings all over will now provide the network architecture by passing the signals to and from devices on 900mhz through the Internet by sharing in the bandwidth of everyone with these Amazon devices.
However these devices are not under the control of the owner of the device. These network activities are encrypted and kept private between Amazon and the device so you don’t even know what your device is doing, what other devices it is listening to or whether it is doing Remote control.
Welcome to Skynet.
