Now.... re-exploring the apps within my Apple and Roku streaming devices (and TV).... I am finding apps that with run on the devices for security camera streaming. This should be a FUN Home automation season.

Well...... I've researched this pretty fully.

There are "apps" that my (and other) smart TV's can use to view WiFi Cameras. Of course not all apps play nicely with all TV's and or WiFi Cameras.

A person could just use Alexa compatible cameras, And a Fire (Amazon) TV, or streaming device... and that will work.

Or... any of the Alexa "screen" equipped Echo/voice devices will display Alexa compatible cameras.

But... keep in mind... the picture is NOT instant. My camera "logon" (from the time I say "Alexa show me the door" or whatever) takes about 12 secs for the cameras logon to display the desired view. I can get an instant view (with a wired feed from my DVR) to a dedicated screen (in my case a picture framed viewer). And of course I am using both (with 2 brands of WiFi cameras). The phone may in most cases may be the fast-easy way for camera viewing.
