Amazon Alexa is already a snappy personal assistant, built into some of the year’s hottest smart home gadgets, allowing people to play music, get information and updates on news, weather and more. As of today, Alexa now works with your Petcube cameras to make caring for your pet even easier! Use the Petcube skill for Alexa for hands-free control without having to pull out your phone!
Ask Alexa to fling treats or play with your pet through voice commands.
Alexa commands give you more control
For the first time, using Alexa through a compatible device like Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, Petcube users have another way to control their pet cameras - with their voice - in addition to traditional access through the Petcube App. Use the easy to remember and simple to use voice commands through Alexa to fling treats to your pet with Petcube Bites or play with your pet with Petcube Play.
Easy setup for voice control via the Petcube skill
Connecting your Petcube camera to Alexa devices is a simple process. It is a short, one-time setup: all you need to do is download and install the Petcube Skill for Alexa and then link your Petcube account through the Alexa app or your Amazon account.
There are no additional fees and you don’t need to make any changes to your Petcube camera or within the Petcube App.
