It turns out that smart home devices aren't just making groceries easier to order, they're also saving lives. According to ABC News, one such device called police to a home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, last week after it overhead a violent domestic dispute.
According to Bernalillo County Sheriff Department's spokesperson Deputy Felicia Romero, Eduardo Barros was house-sitting with his girlfriend and her daughter when the couple got into an argument which became physical.
Barros allegedly wielded a firearm and threatened to kill his girlfriend when he asked her, "Did you call the sheriffs?" The smart device allegedly recognized the question as a command, and called police to the home. Deputies arrived and were able to remove the woman and her daughter unharmed.
