Toll Brothers Features Amazon’s Just Walk out Technology at Its Regency at Folsom Ranch

Toll Brothers announced the installation of Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology at the convenience store within its Regency at Folsom Ranch community located in Folsom, California. The technology is designed to bring residents the ultimate in shopping convenience, among a host of other resort-style amenities at the luxury 55+ active-adult community.

“The new checkout-free store powered by Amazon at Regency at Folsom Ranch is just one more way we have embraced technology to give our residents more time and freedom to enjoy life at our new resort-style community,” said Scott Esping, Division President of Toll Brothers in Sacramento. “The feedback from our homeowners has been very positive, and we expect the store to grow in popularity as a convenient destination for food and drinks, especially with the recent opening of our 18,000 square foot community clubhouse at our Regency at Folsom Ranch community.”

According to GlobeNewswire, Regency at Folsom Ranch is the first residential community west of the Mississippi to adopt this cutting-edge technology as part of its on-site resident amenities. Designed to eliminate checkout lines, the store allows residents to scan their Regency App (which includes credit card information) upon entry, grab the items they need, and leave the store without the need to check out, providing an effortless customer experience. The technology detects what residents take from or return to the shelves and creates a virtual shopping session. When residents have completed shopping, they are able to leave the store without having to wait in line, and their choice of payment method through the Regency App will be charged for the items they took with them.

Just Walk Out technology is made possible by artificial intelligence like computer vision and deep learning techniques, including generative AI, to accurately determine who took what in any retail environment. Amazon built synthetic datasets to mimic millions of realistic shopping scenarios—including variations in store format, lighting conditions, and even crowds of shoppers—to ensure accuracy in any environment.
