Alexa Skill upgrade
Why hasn't SimpliSafe done this?
If you’re a developer and want to integrate your security camera footage into an Alexa skill, you can do so by implementing the
Alexa.CameraStreamController interface in your Alexa skill1. This will allow users to view the feed from their security cameras. If your security camera device is capable of real-time communication (RTC), you can implement the
Alexa.RTCSessionController interface instead1.
You can build an Alexa skill for cloud-enabled cameras that stream video and audio by using the Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP). To use the CameraStreamController API, you’ll need to meet certain prerequisites and SLA requirements, such as using RTSP + RTP streaming protocol, interleaved TCP on port 443 (for both RTP and RTSP), and TCP socket encryption on port 443 using TLS 1.21.
