The Echo Dot is the most affordable way to add Alexa to your home. Not only can the Echo Dot play music, answer questions, read the news, check the weather, set alarms and control compatible smart home devices, it can guard your home with Alexa Guard. Alexa Guard will send a notification to the Alexa app if the device detects the sound of a smoke alarm, carbon monoxide alarm or glass breaking while you’re away. Alexa Guard is like a pair of ears you can leave at home.
The Alexa Guard Skill must be enabled.
“Alexa I’m leaving”. Activates the application.
