Smart Home Speaker Alerts Police To Domestic Assault

Smart Home Speaker Alerts Police To Domestic Assault

Authorities did not reveal the type of speaker that made the call, but it can be assumed that it could either have been a Google Home Speaker or an Amazon Echo; two of the most popular speakers on the market.

We're gradually learning that smart home devices can be quite valuable for police.

A man named Eduardo Barros along with his girlfriend and her daughter were housesitting in New Mexico last week when an argument erupted. After having gotten violent, Barros started accusing his girlfriend of trying to #Call The Police and yelled, "Did you call the sheriffs?" The girl was unharmed and the woman suffered only minor injuries and did not go to the hospital, according to ABC.

"The unexpected use of this new technology to contact emergency services has possibly helped save a life", Barnalillo County Sheriff Manual Gonzales III said in a statement.

When the cops arrived, they removed the girlfriend and her daughter from the scene.

Court records show that he now faces several charges, including aggravated battery against a household member, aggravated assault against a household member, false imprisonment and possession of a firearm or destructive device by a felon. "This incredible technology definitely helped save a mother and her child from a very violent situation", Bernalillo County Sheriff Manuel Gonzales III said in a statement to ABC News.

China issues safety advisory for citizens travelling to India
It was "ridiculous" for India to cross the border on the pretext of concern over the road, he said. China accused India of taking the protection of Bhutan as an excuse to legitimize its incursion.

Barros appeared Wednesday in the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court in Albuquerque, where a judge determined there was probable cause for his arrest, according to court spokeswoman Camille Baca. Barros asked his girlfriend while allegedly holding a gun.

Barros, who is being represented by a public defender, has not yet entered a plea, the court said.

A smart speaker that was inside the home during the incident heard Barros and misinterpreted the question as an actual command to call the police.
