Amazon’s new Echo Show doesn’t launch until next week, but it’s already getting support from the top smart home camera companies. Nest, August, Amcrest, EZViz, IC Realtime, Vivint, Ring, Logitech, and Arlo smart home cameras will all work with the Echo Show, allowing you to simply say “Alexa, show me the front door” to get access to your camera feed.

As the integration is linked to Alexa in general, even Echo devices without the 7-inch screen of the Echo Show will soon be able to tap into audio feeds from the compatible cameras. It’s all part of a new Smart Home Camera Control available to all developers today to make it easy to integrate connected cameras with Alexa.

Amazon’s Echo Show will be available on June 28th, priced at $229.99. The device includes a 7-inch touchscreen display, with Alexa built-in. It also includes access to content from YouTube and Amazon Video, alongside support for video calling. Amazon is using the Show’s display to provide more information from Alexa queries, and it’s clear from today’s expansion that the display will be used for extending Alexa’s impressive smart home support.

Update, 11:25AM ET: Article updated to include Logitech's Circle 2 smart home camera.
