Alexa Guard now rolling out in the US: Echo alerts you when it hears sounds of smoke alarms and breaking glass

[2019-05-14 10:31:33]

Amazon is rolling out a new feature for its Echo smart speaker devices called Alexa Guard. Alexa Guard turns your Echo into a mini-home security device. It will listen out for noises like smoke alarms going off or smashed glass, and send alerts to your phone including audio clips and a video feed (if your Echo has a camera). Following a beta test last year, the feature will soon be available to all Echo owners in the United States. You can start using it by enabling Guard in the Alexa app. The post Alexa Guard now rolling out in the US: Echo alerts you when it hears sounds of smoke alarms and breaking glass appeared first on 9to5Mac.
