Amazon’s Cloud Cam now has a web interface and more Alexa commands

  Amazon’s Cloud Cam now has a web interface and more Alexa commands Amazon has announced new functionalities for its home security camera Cloud Cam, as well as updates to both the Echo Show and Echo Spot, as reported by Android Police. You can now check Cloud Cam’s live view from a computer, where before it was only available via the app. Also, you can use the command, “Alexa, turn on [camera name]” to turn on your Cloud Cam.These are both small but incredibly useful additions.

Amazon 's Cloud Cam just became decidedly more useful, especially for those moments when you can't pull out your phone. Web interfaces certainly aren't new to home security cameras , so this was arguably an overdue addition.

Amazon's Cloud Cam just became decidedly more useful, especially for those moments when you can't pull out your phone. You can watch your live view from your computer through a cloudcam.amazon.com web portal -- handy if you're at work and want to check on your pet. Web interfaces certainly aren't new to home security cameras, so this was arguably an overdue addition.

There are some updates that give Amazon an edge, though. For one, two-way audio is now available through the Echo Show and Echo Spot -- you can talk to a family member (or, perish the thought, a burglar) from whatever's convenient. And whichever Echo you have, you can both turn on the Cloud Cam through Alexa as well as receive detection alerts. These might not convince you to buy a Cloud Cam if you weren't already intrigued by the concept, but they make a better case for the device if you live in an Amazon-centric household.
