Knowledge Base Skill - Interact with locks through Amazon Alexa

There are three ways to interact with your locks: by name, group, or general device type. 

  • To interact by name, use the exact name in the command.
  • To interact with a group of devices with similar names, use a common word in the lock names. 
    Example: If there are locks named basement door and basement deadbolt you could lock both by saying, "Alexa, ask to lock the basement locks" or "Alexa, ask to lock the locks in the basement."
  • To interact with groups of locks by general device type (e.g., doors, locks, or deadbolts), say the type of device in the command. 
    Example: "Alexa, ask to lock the doors," or "Alexa, ask Are my doors locked?"
