Toshiba's Symbio serves as a multi-talented system that works as a security camera, Alexa speaker, smart home hub, intercom and sound detector. The device is compatible with Zigbee or Z-Wave, utilizing the iOS or Android Toshiba Smart Home app; this allows users to control multiple settings such as lighting, music, door locks and temperature from any location.

The device's built-in camera operates at an integrated 1080p and features wide-angles. The microphone grants the communication of a two-way intercom, as well as monitoring of sound. Providing motion-based alerts and a live HD stream to a user's smartphone, it eliminates the concern of smoke detection or other dangers.
