Google Home speakers enable users to speak voice commands to interact with services through Google's intelligent personal assistant called Google Assistant. A large number of services, both in-house and third-party, are integrated, allowing users to listen to music, control playback of videos or photos, or receive news updates entirely by voice.
This integration allows user to use voice to bring up Imou cameras on a chromecast enabled TV.
Amazon Echo Show is a smart speaker that is part of the Amazon Echo line of products. Similarly to other devices in the family, it is designed around Amazon's virtual assistant Alexa, but additionally features a 7-inch display that can be used to display visual information to accompany its responses, as well as play video and conduct video calls with other Echo Show users.
Imou has integrated with Echo Show so users can simply ask it to bring up the live view of the camera.
If This Then That, also known as IFTTT, is a free web-based service to create chains of simple conditional statements, called applets.
An applet is triggered by changes that occur within other web-services/app/devices such as Gmail, Facebook, or Imou.For example, you can use the default recipe to toggle alarm mode when you leave home. This links your cellphone GPS to the alarm mode of your Imou camera.
Or, you can even setup your own recipe to trigger your smart light to open every time Imou camera senses motion.
