What commands can I use with Amazon Alexa?

Last Updated: Aug 10, 2017 09:54AM BST
To use Amazon Alexa with Y-cam Protect you need to be within range so that Alexa can hear you. The commands to use are as follows:

To arm: "Alexa, tell YCAM to arm."
For the phones that have the Y-cam app installed a Push Notification will be received confirming Y-cam Protect has been armed.

To disarm: "Alexa, tell YCAM to disarm with [SAY PIN]."
For the phones that have the Y-cam app installed a Push Notification will be received confirming Y-cam Protect has been disarmed.

To put into Home Mode: "Alexa, tell YCAM to Home Mode."

When giving Alexa instructions then it is important you say "Alexa, tell YCAM to...". If you do not do this then skill will not work. Also you just need to say YCAM, it will not work if you say Y dash CAM.
