Swann has launched Google Assistant voice control via Google Home and Chromecast on its multi-camera wired surveillance systems.
“Swann are thrilled to make home security more seamless for consumers by enabling it to integrate with devices that are already in their connected homes,” said Jeremy Stewart, Vice President, Global Marketing, Swann.
“With consumers increasingly using a variety of wireless and portable devices and applications every day, it’s important that security underpins all of this activity.”
With simple voice commands such as “Okay, Google, show me channel one” or “Hey Google, show me the front door”, users can now view exactly what their cameras see, hands-free.
“In Australia, smart speaker adoption has been a major driver of the connected home market and integration with voice assistants is a technology trend that we’re seeing across a range of consumer electronics including home security,” said Jeremy. “Some wireless cameras have incorporated voice integrations, but Swann is the first to bring this technology to wired multi-camera systems.”
To get started, users must download Swann’s HomeSafe View app on their mobile device and pair it with the Google Assistant. Then, voice commands will be responded to via the Google Assistant app or the Google Home speaker. From there, the user’s Google Chromecast will recognise the commands and stream video from their security cameras to a TV.
