Connecting Your Virtual Assistant to Smart Home Security

massachusetts home security

There is so much your smart home security system can do to make life simpler when you’re not at home. But what about when you are home – and you have a virtual assistant like Alexa, Google Home or Amazon Echo? In that case, your system is even more powerful.

What Voice Control Integration Can Do

With the voice control integration we make available, you can use your smart home security system to give voice commands to any of these virtual assistant devices. Here are some examples of this intuitive technology.

Let’s say it’s time to read the kids their bedtime story and settle in for the night. That’s when you say something like this to your virtual assistant: “Okay Google: Arm the security system.” Now, there’s no reason to reach for your phone to secure the house for the night.

What if you’re parking in the garage and your hands are too full to close the garage door? There’s no need to drop everything to the ground. Instead, head into the house and say, “Hey Alexa, close the garage.” Just like that, it’s done. And if you have smart locks on the front door, the same command can be used to lock the front door as well.

Now, let’s say you’re sick with the flu in the middle of winter. You want to turn up the heat, but you don’t want to get out of bed to do it. “Okay Google: Set the temperature to 72 degrees.” If your smart home security connected to your virtual assistant, that’s all you have to say.
