Less than seven months have passed since Roku and Walmart jointly announced the launch of the Roku lineup of smart home products. The products included security cameras, video doorbells, lighting, plugs, and more. 

Building on the success of those products, Roku has announced a further expansion into the smart home space with new products and features. 

Tip: All Roku Smart Home devices are certified by the ioXt Alliance, the global standard for IoT security. 

Home Monitoring System SE

Enhanced Roku OS Integration

  • Home Monitoring On TV: See an on-TV notification and alarm countdown when your Roku Home Monitoring System SE is armed, and a sensor is triggered.
  • Access Camera Event History: Experience seamless integration between your connected camera and smart doorbell with the Roku Cameras app, which downloads video footage automatically to your Roku player or TV powered by the Roku OS. You can view live camera footage or click “Events” to see previous recording history filtered by preference on your TV.

      ORT,

      Exactly that. It’s a smart play by Roku. They really needed to diversify.
