Over security systems, the companies are developing an app that would provide users with real-time access to their home and offices.
Amazon’s Smart Security System (SMS) will provide home users with a full range of security options, including alarms, home security cameras, and video feeds of what is going on in the home, including their devices and home security devices.
Microsoft’s Security System will be a service that allows users to manage security settings for their home, with security software for PCs and mobile devices.
Amazon said it will launch an app called Smart Security Suite (SSS) that will give users access to all of these security settings, as well as cloud-based cloud security solutions.
Amazon and MSFT said they plan to make the app available in the next few weeks.
Amazon announced a security solution for mobile devices last year, which the company says is designed to be “more flexible and adaptable” than its own mobile apps.
The company said the app is a free download on the Appstore and can be used on Android and iOS devices.
The app provides the ability to lock down home and office security cameras and a cloud-hosted version of the company’s security solution.
“In a digital world, security is not just about controlling access to data, but also protecting privacy, security and trust,” Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos said at the time.
Amazon has been testing the app for several months and said it has received feedback that it has been “an excellent fit.”
The company is not alone in its efforts to improve security on its platforms.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security are also working on their own security solutions, including one that would let users lock down all their homes and businesses with a remote camera.
Microsoft and Amazon have also announced their own solutions for the home and are planning to launch a similar app for the enterprise in the coming months.
