A New Mexico man was arrested for allegedly defeating his girlfriend after a smart home device had informed the police.
Eduardo Barros, 28, was with his girlfriend and her daughter in a home in Tijeras, outside Albuquerque, on July 2.
The couple got into a fight and the confrontation became physical, according to the spokeswoman for the Sheriff Department of the province of Bernalillo, deputy Felicia Romero.

It is clear that Barros reportedly got angry because of a text message the woman received and he accused her of cheating.
He was said to be in possession of a firearm and threatened to kill his unknown friend by saying to her: & # 39; Did you call the sheriffs? & # 39;
A smart speaker, which was connected to a surround sound system in the house, recognized the comment as a voice command and called 911, Romero told the New York Post.
Delegates later arrived at the house and brought the woman and her daughter to safety.
The woman was injured during the incident but was not taken to a hospital and her daughter was not injured, police said.
The New York Post reported that it was uncertain whether the speaker was connected to an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot device, but according to Romero the virtual Alexa assistant was connected to a landline in the house.
An Alexa virtual assistant was connected to a landline in the house and was asked to call 911 when Barros asked his girlfriend during a fight if he had called & # 39; the sheriffs & # 39;
The sworn statement to the arrest warrant stated that & # 39; When 911 called her phone, Barros saw the caller ID and threw (her) to the ground.
& # 39; Barros then kicked her on the floor at least 10 times in the face and stomach.
& # 39; Barros told (the victim) that he could not believe that the police had been called and that he was not going back to prison and that she knew he was a criminal. (The victim) said she thought she would be killed or shot. & # 39;
Bernalillo County Sheriff Manuel Gonzales said the technology potentially saved lives
Barros, a convicted felon, was later detained after compensation after a crisis negotiation team and a SWAT team arrived at the property.
The police claimed that the smart device might have saved lives during the violent incident.
& # 39; The unexpected use of this new technology to contact emergency services may have helped lifelong.
& # 39; This amazing technology has certainly helped save a mother and her child from a very violent situation, & # 39; Bernalillo County told Sheriff Manuel Gonzales III ABC news.
The suspect is confronted with an accusation of possession of a firearm or a destructive device by a criminal.
He is also confronted with accusations of an aggravated battery against a member of the household, a false imprisonment and a serious abuse against a member of the household.
