If you own an Echo Show, did you know that you can use it as a security camera? In this guide, we’ll show you how to set up the Echo Show as a security camera and use it to monitor your home.
First, you need to make some changes to the device before you can start using this feature. Swipe down from the top of the screen and click on ‘Settings’. Scroll down to ‘Camera’ and toggle on ‘Home Monitoring’. You’ll need to verify your account and put in your password for your Amazon account. Once you’ve done this, you’re all set!
To test out the live view, move the Echo Show in front of you and grab your phone. Load up the Alexa app and click on the ‘Device’ tab at the bottom. Scroll through the tabs and select ‘Cameras’. If you can’t find your Echo Show, try closing out of the app and relaunching it. Once you’ve found your Echo Show, click on it to bring up a live view of what’s going on.
It’s important to note that the Echo Show does not do any recordings, so if you need extra features, you’ll want to look at a security system. But it does give you a live view of what’s happening in your home. The camera will let you know if someone is watching through the camera and you can stop the live feed at any time.
Overall, using the Echo Show as a security camera is a simple process. If you plan on using this feature, let us know in the comments below. And if you want to know more about the Echo ecosystem, check out the link below for reviews.org.
