Amazon Echo Alarm ControlEric Hunt
If you are a gadget friendly household and already have an Amazon Echo, we have features that will really get you excited. Our systems work with Amazon Echo to control your SecuritiSmart home alarm and automation systems, all with your voice.
If you don’t have Amazon Echo, but already have a system from us, you might want to check it out. Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice, which can be located anywhere in a room for it to work. You talk to Amazon Echo and it will play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and of course order items from Amazon rather seamlessly. All you have to do is ask.
While ordering a roll of paper towels simply by asking is pretty smooth, being able to control your house is approaching futuristic. The Amazon Echo answers to the name of “Alexa”. Simply saying “Alexa, turn off the lights in the bedroom”, your lights are turns off without even crawling out of bed.
They are rolling out new features regularly, giving us a whole new toolbox to play from in regards to automating you life at home. You can do most of what you can think of now.
- Control the lights
- Change the temperature
- Lock/Unlock a door
Just to add more to our love of Amazon Echo and our systems, it also integrates with our video monitoring doorbell through SkyBell. From there you can do things like
- Record live video of your front door (which is saved to your account so you can view it later)
- Take a picture of your doorstep
- Turn the indoor chime ON/OFF
How does it work?
