Yandex has launched a camera category in the Smart Home with Alice app. Home video surveillance is one of the most popular options for smart devices among users. With the help of the camera, you can always check how the pet is doing while the user is at work, and control the situation at home while the owners are away.
The user does not need to switch between different applications to control his smart home – all devices are in one place. For example, if you say “Alice, show the video from the camera in the country”, the assistant will display the picture on the big screen. The image from the cameras can be broadcast to a device that works with the Module, a Yandex smart TV with Alice, or a partner TV on the Yandex TV platform.
“Together with partners, we have launched the long-awaited video streaming feature in the Smart Home with Alice app. Now we are working with cameras from Rostelecom, Ivideon, Trassir and some others. Cameras will continue to be integrated into the smart home, over time we will expand the functionality and add new features“, – said the head of the smart home at Yandex, Marat Mavlyutov.
A smart home eliminates routine chores and makes the apartment safer. With a smart home, you can turn off the lights and turn off electrical appliances in the apartment with one phrase, clean up with a robot vacuum cleaner, turn on the air conditioner and kettle on the way home, and much more.
