Amazon announced today that it will start selling digital thermometer accessories and other products to help people prepare for a new, droughts-proofing-free world.
Amazon says it will begin selling the products at select retail locations across the US in the coming weeks.
The digital thermo-spatial-thermometer will allow people to visualize the temperature at their homes and businesses.
Amazon’s chief financial officer, John Donahoe, says the digital thermometers will help people avoid the heat-related illnesses and respiratory issues that have plagued millions of people this year.
He says the products are part of a global effort to improve global weather forecasting, which has been plagued by a number of severe weather events.
“These are a new tool that helps us better understand and predict extreme weather events that can impact millions of lives,” Donahoxe says in a statement.
Amazon started selling digital temperature reading tools for the first time earlier this month, and it will also start selling a device called the Smart Thermometer that will let users visualize their own temperature.
The company says the smart thermometer will offer more accurate temperature readings, but will only be available for a limited time.
Amazon also announced today a new line of digital thermographic accessories for Amazon Prime customers that will include a digital thermocouple, a digital sensor, and a thermometer that can be attached to your fridge or freezer.
Amazon also said today it would begin shipping digital thermometric devices to more customers in India, including for use in their homes.
“Today, our team has spent years working to get people the right tools to help them prepare for the changes that lie ahead,” Amazon said in a blog post.
“Today, we’re excited to offer these new products in the United States, with our Prime program.
We’re proud of our team’s ability to help millions of Americans survive the devastating impacts of climate change.
