Yes, you heard right! From now on, you can control your Smartfrog IP-Cams via your Amazon Echo, Alexa, or corresponding Fire devices simply by voice command.

Whether you want to leave the house or arrive, from now on you won’t need a free hand to switch your Smartfrog Cam on and off with the app – you’ll only need your voice.

You can easily tell Alexa if you want to turn your Smartfrog Cam off or on. This function works with all the cameras you have connected to your Amazon Echo device.

Once you have connected your Smartfrog Cam to Amazon Echo, you can switch your cameras on or off using various commands:

“Alexa, turn on the Smartfrog camera.”

“Alexa, turn off the Smartfrog camera.”

Please note however, that the name you chose for your camera during installation is the same name that your Amazon Echo device is based on.

Tip: The feature now works with all Amazon Alexa devices as well as Echo, Echo Show, Echo Spot, Fire Tablets and Fire TV.
