Amazon’s Fire Stick Is Even Better If You Have A Home Security System
For those with home security systems, your Amazon Firestick and Alexa can allow you to watch the cameras from your TV as long as they’re connected to your local network.
Hundreds of security cameras are available with wired and wireless connectivity, so ensure that whichever cameras you have are compatible with Alexa.
You’ll also want to make sure that each of your cameras has a name like “Side Gate” or “Front Walk” so that they are easily identifiable.
Ensure that your Alexa is set up to connect to your Firestick by going into Alexa’s settings in the app, navigating to the Fire TV section, and linking Alexa.
Once everything is connected, the next step is to try it out by speaking a command to your Alexa device or using the speech function on your Firestick remote.
Provided you have named your cameras correctly, you should be able to say, “Alexa, show me Front Walk,” and your television should display the appropriate camera feed.
