What you need to know

  • Amazon has launched its new person and package announcements for Ring video doorbells and security cameras with Alexa support.
  • Alexa will send alerts to your Echo devices as well as Fire TV and Fire Tablet devices when a person or package is detected at your door.
  • Ring, Google, and Abode are working with Amazon to incorporate these features into their respective offerings.

Amazon Alexa will now be able to alert you when packages or people are detected outside your door, thanks to a new feature rolling out to compatible security cameras and video doorbells.

The new person and package detection will notify you in several ways, such as by pushing notifications to the Alexa app, blaring an alert on an Echo speaker, or displaying a live video feed on the Echo Show, Fire TV, or Fire tablet.
