Knowledge Base Skill - Interact with your security system through Amazon Alexa

Note: Arm away is currently not supported.

There are three ways to interact with your security panel using Amazon Alexa: by partition, group of partitions, or general device type.

  • To interact by partition, use the exact name in the command.
  • To interact with a group of devices with similar names, use a common word in the partition names.
    Example: If there is a partition named Front Door and Front Area you could arm both by saying, "Alexa, ask to arm stay the front partitions."
  • To interact with the entire security system by the general device type (e.g., security system or panel), say the type of device in the command. 
    Example: "Alexa, ask to arm the panel" or "Alexa, ask is my panel armed?".

Example commands:
