Y-cam Skill enables Alexa control of Protect Alarm
Y-cam Solutions, a leader in smart home security since 2007, announces Y-cam Skill enabling Alexa control of Protect, a complete Triple Layer smart security system designed to actively monitor your home and reduce your chances of becoming a victim of burglary. Simple to set up, the Y-cam Skill provides greater control using voice activation to manage your Smart Home Security.
The Y-cam Protect Skill allows you to control your Y-cam Protect alarm system using the intelligent personal voice assistant Alexa. So, you can control your Y-cam smart home security and experience peace of mind. For additional security when disarming your Protect alarm via Alexa you will need to say your 4-digit PIN number.
Just download the Y-cam Skill from the Y-cam website and then say: "Alexa, tell Y-cam to..." This will activate Alexa and engage your Y-cam Skill and Protect Alarm System. You then can select from different options including On/Off or Arm/Disarm or Home Mode. If disarming the alarm for the first time, the Y-cam Protect Alarm intelligently knows you have not set a PIN, it will ask you to select a 4 Digit Number and then ask for this each time you which to disarm using Alexa voice control commands.
