Can Alexa call 911

0 0

Alexa can’t dial 911 on its own, but it can use third-party skills and external hardware to assist you in a crisis. Amazon’s Echo Connect, for example, will connect your Alexa system directly to a landline, allowing you to dial 911.

Amazon’s Echo Connect seems to have been a flop in the Alexa system family, as the company no longer sells it. However, if you have one lying around or want to buy one on a secondhand website like eBay, it might be the ideal solution. Echo Connect was first introduced as a small box that could be attached to your landline and used as a speakerphone for your Echo devices.

Follow these steps to set up Echo Connect:

  1. Place your Echo Connect near your modem or phone jack and plug it in.
  2. Use a splitter adapter on the telephone jack to create two connections if you need to plug in a standard telephone handset alongside Echo Connect.
  3. Next, open the Alexa app on your smartphone.
  4. Select the Settings option from the drop-down menu.
    Add Device is the next choice, followed by Amazon Echo.
  5. To complete the setup, select Echo Connect.
