Elevate How You Communicate With Scout Using Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service
• 2 minutes read
Today, Amazon announced the Alexa Fund, and Scout is among the first companies to be part of it! Amazon’s investment in Scout will drive the creation of an incredible new feature on the Scout system: voice control using Alexa on Amazon Echo. This will make Scout the first home security system to integrate with Amazon Echo.
We are giving Scout customers the ability to control Scout by talking to Alexa so you can leave your smartphone stored away. Alexa on Amazon Echo will be able to talk to a customer on behalf of Scout, making every action faster and easier. By speaking to Alexa, you can arm and disarm Scout, receive updates on the system, ask questions about the current status, sound the siren or even request help in an emergency situation.
Alexa on Amazon Echo allows us and other companies to provide customers with an experience unmatched by competitors. With simple voice commands backed by a more complex technology, Scout is modernizing home security for today’s smart home.
