Amazon Echo Can Guard Your Home Now

Alexa Guard is a cheap method to protect your home.

Amazon just made the Echo speakers more useful with Alexa Guard. Guard is an Alexa feature that helps you keep your home safe. When you set Guard to Away mode, if an Echo device detects the sound of smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, or glass breaking, Alexa can send you Smart Alerts, via notifications to your phone.

If you have a Ring, ADT Pulse, or ADT Control security system, Alexa can also arm your system when you set Guard to Away mode, and you can opt to forward Smart Alerts to your security provider. And if you have connected smart lights, Alexa can automatically turn them on and off when Guard is in Away mode to make it look like someone is home.

Echo Dot, Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Spot and Echo Show are all compatible with Alexa Guard. So basically you can get a security system for as low as $29.99. The Echo Dot (Gen 3) is on sale right now for that price. Find out more details about Echo Guard on
