Use Alexa to Lock Your Car's Doors and Track Its Location

Firstech is launching the DroneMobile Skill for Alexa-Enabled Devices, which will allow DroneMobile users to lock and track their vehicles using voice commands.

Firstech, makers of aftermarket automotive solutions, has announced the launch of the new DroneMobile Skill for Alexa-enabled devices.

DroneMobile is a connected car solution that gives drivers the ability to lock/unlock, GPS track, and remote start their vehicles using their smartphone. In 2016, Firstech expanded the DroneMobile app to work on wearable devices such as the Apple Watch and Android Wear.
The launch of the Skill for Alexa makes DroneMobile the first aftermarket connected car solution to support voice commands on Alexa-enabled devices. Firstech predicts that DroneMobile will similarly support Google Home devices by mid-Q3 2017.
DroneMobile users that have an active subscription will be able to download the DroneMobile Skill for free. Upon activation, users will be required to create a secret PIN to prevent unauthorized vehicle control. Firstech has stated that remote start features are not yet available and that for the time being, users will be able to lock, unlock, and track their vehicles using the DroneMobile Skill. Amazon has also announced that developers will be able to utilize Alexa alerts in the near future, a feature that would integrate seamlessly with vehicle security and tracking applications.
"We are excited to bring the powerful Alexa engine to DroneMobile," shares Firstech's Managing Director, Jason Kaminski, "Integration between Amazon and DroneMobile gives customers a truly hands-free way of staying connected to their cars."
The DroneMobile Skill for Alexa is available for download in the Alexa app and on Amazon.com. DroneMobile systems are sold and professionally installed at over 2,000 authorized retailers across North America.
