Can Alexa Call 911 In Case Of Emergency?

Alexa directly cannot call 911 emergency services for you. You need to pair your Echo Connect to your landline phone first if you want Alexa to call 911 services.

Now you may ask why Alexa cannot call 911? Well, this is due to the regulatory compliance of FCC rules. As per these rules, any 911 capable device should provide the exact location and a callback number. Which practically can be implemented by Amazon but they didn’t do it.

How To Use An Echo Connect To Call 911 ?

This Amazon accessory is a workaround to use Alexa to call 911. Although this product is officially discontinued by Amazon, you may still be able to find it on sites like eBay.

The setup is still supported when using Alexa Web Services. You will be prompted when you try to add the Echo Connect on your android or iOS app. You will also need a splitter adapter jack if you wish to connect with 911 from your regular phone apart from Echo Connect.

How To Setup an Emergency Alexa Contact

Before we set up an emergency contact in Alexa, let’s talk about two more features which will help you during an emergency. As we mentioned above, Alexa inherently cannot call 911 services directly but you can make use of features like Ask My Buddy or My SOS Family from Amazon. These two will help you reach out to your emergency contact or family member when you need help. You just need to give the voice command, “Ask my buddy for help!”

If you cannot buy a discontinued Echo Connect or you don’t have a landline at your place then the only option is to set up an emergency contact linked to your Alexa account. To do that follow the steps mentioned below: – 

  1. Open the Alexa app on your iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, click on communicate.
  3. Now tap on the contacts icon on the top right hand corner.
  4. Click open the triple dot menu on the top right
  5. Select the option, “Emergency Contact
  6. Now just follow the instructions on the phone to set up an emergency contact or you can create a new one too.

7. Once done, in future if you need any help, just ask Alexa, “Call My Emergency Contact

What Is An Alexa Guard Mode?

Alexa Guard and Alexa Guard Plus is a FREE security system which you get with your Echo Connect. It enables your Echo device to work as a security device too and pay attention to voice commands related to emergency.

The subscription service which comes along with Alexa Guard, is called ALexa Guard Plus which provides access to premium features 24/7 which also includes an emergency helpline.

Once Alexa Guard is enabled through the Alexa app, the Echo speakers in your home are able to detect threats like fire, window breaking, footsteps or smoke and making you aware of the same when you’re away. 

Alexa Guard can also mimic your daily usage on lights at home even when you’re away by switching them ON and OFF.

How To Enable Alexa Guard

  1. Open the Alexa app on your iOS or android device.
  2. Click open menu by tapping the 3 dots and then go to → Settings
  3. Scroll down till you find the Guard option. Select it.
  4. It will ask you to confirm your zip code to activate the Away Lightning  feature.

Once Alexa Guard is activated, you can give a voice command which says, “Alexa I’m Leaving” to your Echo Connect device. This will trigger AWAY MODE and in case of any emergency situations like smoke, glass breaking etc, you will get alerts on your phone.

Alexa Guard is a free service. However, Alexa Guard Plus is $4.99 a month or ($49 per year).
