August Home’s August Doorbell cam now interfaces with Amazon Alexa. August Doorbell Cam users can ask, “Alexa, show me the front door,” to quickly watch live video of visitors or motion outside the door on any Amazon Echo Show.
“It’s great to delight customers by adding value to the products they already own and rely on as part of their daily lives. We added the ability to control the August Smart Lock with Alexa earlier this year, which has been extremely popular,” said Jason Johnson, CEO of August Home. “With the expansion of our Amazon Alexa skill, we are making it easier for our customers to control their Doorbell Cam. Now they can display video of visitors outside their door using their voice.”
August Doorbell Cam customers can use Alexa to display video on an Amazon Echo Show by enabling the August skill within the Alexa app and linking their account.
The ability to display August Doorbell Cam video on Echo Show comes as an expansion of the August Smart Home skill. August Smart Lock customers using the first-generation or second-generation lock can already use voice commands with Alexa-enabled devices to control their lock and check the lock status.
The ability to control the August Doorbell Cam with Alexa is available immediately through the August Smart Home skill by pairing the August Doorbell Cam within the Alexa app.
