LILIN Americas, an entity of video surveillance provider Merit LILIN, serving North, Central and South America, announced that it has added an Amazon Alexa skill to its Device Hub device manager that enables customers to simply ask for a live or recorded view from any supported LILIN IP camera or NVR and have it displayed on their TV monitor.
Amazon Alexa converts the end user's command to a directive and sends that directive through the Device Hub. This fast, hands-free solution eliminates the need to navigate on screen menus or have a mobile device in hand whenever video is needed for monitoring.

Enhancing the end user experience
"Using the voice-controlled Alexa features of the LILINHub skill provide a convenient way for end-users to easily monitor their property, such as viewing live camera feeds, playing back video footage from a LILIN NVR and reviewing motion events," said Joe Cook, General Manager of LILIN Americas.
He further added, "All the end user needs to do is tell Alexa the command to view the front door camera and the live view will display. This integration is another example of LILIN enhancing the end user experience."
In addition, Device Hub provides a security professional the ability to remotely monitor multiple sites in one centralised dashboard via the LILIN Device Cloud with the up-to-date status of connected LILIN devices. The LILINHub App has a site mapping feature that plots multiple site locations within Google Maps.
