DALLAS – Monitronics has bolstered its smart home portfolio of products with the addition of the new Skill for Amazon Echo.
The device allows homeowners to control and check the status of all their connected devices and quickly perform daily tasks such as locking the door, checking to ensure the security system is armed, adjusting the lighting or capturing video clips.
“The new Alarm.com smart home skill for Amazon Echo provides added value to Monitronics security systems,” says Peter Tonti, Monitronics’ vice president of product management. “This is yet another integration we have added that gives our customers and dealers flexibility, and we are excited for the implications.”
Monitronics’ customers with Amazon Echo devices and a system powered by Alarm.com can now install the skill on their Echo device to enable a series of new voice commands. Once installed, homeowners prompt Alexa to control a broad range of devices with a single command.
