Amazon Alexa Being Used As Home Security System In The US
New Delhi: Alexa Guard officially began rolling out to users in the United States on Tuesday. Once the Guard is enabled within the Settings menu of the Alexa app, owners can simply say “Alexa, I’m leaving home” to activate Guard mode.
In addition to alerting home-owners to the sound of glass breaking while they’re away, the device can inform you if your smoke emanating from your house. When something is detected, you’ll both receive a Smart Alert phone notification and will be able to play the sound (or watch a clip if you have a smart home device with a display) from the Alexa app.
Furthermore, Alexa Guard also features ‘Away Lighting Tool’ which turns on and off lights at designated parts of the day to make it appear as if someone’s home.
