Alexa Guard Works with ADT Monitoring Service

Recently announced at Amazon’s Devices Event among things like Amazon One and AmazonBasics Microwave, Alexa Guard is designed to help protect your home while you’re away. Alexa Guard listens for things like breaking glass and smoke or carbon monoxide alarms. But only when Guard is active. To activate Guard, users simply say, “Alexa, I’m leaving,” as they’re heading out.
Guard then sends users Smart Alerts with audio clips when these suspicious sounds are detected. Users then have a choice to forward these Smart Alerts to ADT, who then can help decide if additional steps should be taken to protect your home. Read more... from ADT Home Safety Center >>>
