Educating On Smart Home

Amazon has begun assembling a team comprising in-house gadget experts, its own version of Best Buy's Geek Squad installation and repair service that has been in existence for about fifteen years, according to Recode.

Geek squad is a team at Best Buy, which was put in place in 2002 to offer 24/7/365 support to help customers on the phone, online, at your home and at more than 1,100 Best Buy stores. The team does installation, setting up, protection, support and repair services.
