Alexa Will Now Deter Burglars
Alexa takes a distinctly light-hearted approach to keeping your home secure.
Your Amazon Echo, or whichever Alexa-enabled smart speaker you are using, will now be able to activate ‘away mode’, thanks to this new skill.
Away Mode plays pre-recorded conversations designed to deter any would-be burglars from targeting your house - but it’s not just any old chit-chat.
The new mode comes with seven hour-long conversations written by the minds behind Saturday Night Live, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and Upright Citizens Brigade, an improvisational comedy group whose alumni include the likes of Amy Poehler, Rich Fulcher, and Adam Walsh.
