Interact with locks through Google Home
There are three ways to interact with your locks: by name, group, or general device type.
Important: The command to Google Home must start with, "Ok Google, ask Alarm.com…" or "Hey Google, ask Alarm.com…".
- 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, "Lock the basement locks" or "Lock the locks in the basement." For more information on group interactions, see Google Home is interacting with multiple devices instead of the one desired device.
- To interact with groups of locks by the general device type (e.g., doors, locks, or deadbolts), say the type of device in the command.
Example: You could say "Lock the doors," or "Are my doors locked?" For more information on group interactions, see Google Home is interacting with multiple devices instead of the one desired device.
The following list of example commands is a small subset of the possible things you can say to your locks through Google Home.
Note: The example commands are for a lock with the name Front door.
To lock the door:
- "Lock door in the front."
- "Bolt the front door."
- "Latch my front doors."
- "Lock the doors."
To ask a question:
- "Check if the front door is locked."
- "Is my front door unlocked?"
- "Are the front doors locked?"
- "Are my doors unlocked?"
