Surveillance viewing with Amazon's Echo Show

Unread post by Ctrl-Grid » Wed Jun 28, 2017 3:39 pm

Is there work with Synology's surveillance with the Amazon's Echo Show device? I am see this happening with Ring and other security products. "Alexa show me the front door."

I would love to see integration of the Surveillance Station with Amazon Echo Show to be able to view cameras associated with the surveillance station.

Synology,

I would like to chime in and add my voice in support for this feature request. I think given the popularity of Amazon's Echo, Echo Show integration would greatly enhance the appeal of Surveillance Station for home use. I love Surveillance Station, but I have to admit that pulling out my phone to check my camera when someone rings my doorbell is too slow and cumbersome. I would love to be able to say, "Alexa, show me the front door."

I absolutely refuse to use any camera system that requires me to use a proprietary cloud service to be able to check my cameras, a-la Ring and Kuna.

If you can please add this feature, I know your entire community would be appreciative. Thank you!

This would be awesome, also hate using other cloud services. Would love to be able to see all cams through my Show.

I just submitted an enhancement request to Synology asking for Amazon Echo Show/Spot support. Folks reading this - please submit a request too, to show Synology that folks are interested in this feature.

Just made the request @ https://www.synology.com/en-global/form/inquiry/feature

Category = Surveillance > Live View

Having just ordered the new Amazon Echo "Spot", I would love to see, as some others have done, some sort of Synology IPCam/DS Cam live view integration/skill. It would be great to say "Alexa, show me the front camera" or "Alexa, show me the dining room camera" etc. without having to pick up a mobile device, open DS Cam and pull up the camera.

Thank you
