Alexa Guard now turns your smart speaker into a home security device – ZDNet

Amazon is rolling out a new feature for the Echo smart speaker which transforms the Alexa-enabled device into a smart home security system.

Originally announced in December 2018, the rollout of Alexa Guard has been a gradual process. You may not have immediate access to the feature as the system still has to be made available to every user in the United States, but for those that can see the upgrade, Alexa Guard can bolster your home security while you are away.  

Alexa Guard is free and is able to send users alerts via their mobile device if a problem at home is suspected. 

The sound of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are registered, as well as glass breaking, and users can either opt to receive a notification or drop in themselves to investigate.
