Protect your home with just your voice thanks to SkylinkNet and Alexa
Controlling your home with the simple sound of your voice is easy enough these days, but protecting it hasn’t always been so easy. Here to change that, however, is the SkylinkNet connected home suite, which allows folks to control their entire home security kit with Alexa Voice Service and “nearly all major smart home devices on IFTTT.” So go ahead — sleep easy, and know that if things require your attention, all you need to do is raise your voice.
The Alexa compatibility allows homeowners to integrate SkylinkNet’s products — including sensors, cameras, and alarms — with Alexa-enabled devices. That means that you can say, “Alexa, ask SkylinkNet to check alarm status,” to see if there’s been any suspicious activity, or “Alexa, ask SkylinkNet to panic,” should a camera or sensor detect anything out of the ordinary. And these don’t have to be exclusively SkylinkNet cameras or sensors — with IFTTT compatibility, users can connect their security kits to Nest Cam, WeMo appliances, or Phillips Hue lights.
