You Can Now Control Your Home Security With Your Voice Using Alexa




Have you heard about amazon's artificial intelligence called Alexa? Amazon Alexa, known simply as Alexa, is a virtual assistant developed by Amazon, first used in the Amazon Echo and the Amazon Echo Dot smart speakers developed by Amazon Lab126. It is capable of voice interaction, music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, security, playing audiobooks, and providing weather, traffic, sports, and other real-time information, such as news.

Alexa can also control several smart devices using itself as a home automation system. Users are able to extend the Alexa capabilities by installing "skills" additional functionality developed by third-party vendors, in other settings more commonly called apps such as weather programs and audio features.

Amazon's Alexa Security

Being able to lock down your home with a few words may seem like science fiction but it's a distinct possibility now, given that Amazon Alexa has added home security control to her resume.

 Amazon has enabled a Security Panel Controller framework that allows voice control for home security systems via an Echo speaker or other Alexa-powered smart home device. The functionality is already available in the US, and being used by companies like Abode, ADT, Honeywell, Ring and Scout Alarm.

Via, Alexa,you can arm or disarm the system, specify certain modes (home, away and night) and or just check in and let them know its you. Of course, saying codes out loud does have its own security risk. Voice disarm needs to be manually enabled first, and rather that yelling your PIN at the Echo, you can choose an Alexa-specific code instead.

Amazon is continuing to develop its presence in the security realm after purchasing Ring and Blink. Alexa's security measures such as user-specific voice recognition might well make it much more convenient than walking across the room to punch in a door code, even if it doesn't seem so secret to speak security controls out loud.


If you use a home security system, what do you think about using voice control for it?
