What Alexa Voice Commands Can Arlo Use?
You may ask the question that what Alexa voice commands can Arlo use! You already know that Alexa was made to make your life smooth and easy by using the right voice commands. You can monitor your Arlo products by using the following things:
Alexa, display me <name of the camera>
By using this command, you can start live footage of your Arlo camera. Is not this interesting? Now to stop streaming, and if you want to go back to the home window, just say, "Alexa, stop." Surprisingly, by doing so, all the activities will be stopped.
If you command; Alexa, hide <Name of the camera>; this will minimize your Arlo camera window and take you back to the home screen.
If you command, ‘Alexa, go home’, it will take you straight to the home screen.
Now new commands have been developed by which you can arm or disarm your security system by giving Alexa a command. You just need to provide a four-digit code to Alexa, and Alexa will disarm the equipment linked to your base station. For this, you can use the following voice commands:
‘Alexa, arm’ <Pk window or name of the base station>
This voice command will arm the connected devices to your Base station.
To disarm the paired base station, you have to command:
‘Alexa, disarm’ <Pk windows or name of the base station>
You have limited voice commands that you can give to your Arlo cameras. To know more, it is suggested to check the website of Arlo.
