Alexa Guard is coming soon for all Echo owners in the US

Amazon's Alexa Guard feature was released in the US following an invitation preview that lasted months. With this free update, echo speakers can hear danger signals at home while away. Sounds such as glass sculptures (caused by thieves or moody cats) or smoke alarms cause Alexa to send Smart Alerts composed of audio clips. If you have a camera built into the echo, your home video feed will be displayed directly.

In addition to listening, the Alexa Guard mimics the use of everyday smart lighting, turning lights on and off to make them look like home. Amazon says Alexa Guard is not an alternative to the alarm system and can not alert the authorities. Nevertheless, with these basic features, Echo speakers are available and can be a little bit ahead of what's available on Google Home and Apple HomePod.

Alexa app after app updates arrive on your phone. Once you're there, go to Settings, tap & # 39; Guard & # 39; and follow the setup process.

If the house is already set, you should say [Alexa, 나는 떠나고 있습니다.]. Smart home security systems (such as ring), Alexa Guard may seem trivial. However, it is a valuable add-on that you do not have to charge extra. As colleague Sean Hollister pointed out, this feature should be a little more relaxed because Ring does not yet have a sensor and can not detect window braking ( ).

When it comes to rings, Amazon generally does not want to integrate cross-functionalities between home security products, but when Alexa tells him to turn on Guard mode, Alexa Guard can configure it to run the ring security system.
