Voice-activated home automation has recently become a real thing for homeowners all over the world. What was once a novelty feature that was hard to obtain became mainstream with the advent of devices like the Amazon Echo.
Smart Homes for Everyone
Now, for under $50, a homeowner could deliver voice commands to Amazon’s AI, Alexa, to open garage doors, turn lights on and off, and adjust settings on their thermostats. Alexa can also do other useful things like tell you the weather, add items to your shopping list, or even buy items. Now, with all these amazing features, homeowners with security systems would like to know the answer to one big question:
Which home alarm systems integrate with Alexa?
Imagine the convenience of being able to activate and deactivate your alarm system with a simple vocal command! Instead of hassling with a keypad when you’re trying to get out of the door, just use your voice to keep your home protected.
Home Alarm Systems That Work With Alexa
As technology improves daily and security systems aim to fully integrate with smart homes, you can expect to see this list grow. Here are just a couple home security systems that integrate with Alexa.
Scout Security – Alexa can arm and disarm Scout with just a vocal command. You can also have Alexa tell you if your system is armed or command Scout to sound its siren. Pairing Alexa with Scout is easy and requires just a passcode that links the two systems. The ways you can interact with Scout will depend on the settings you place—whether you’re home, away, or on vacation.
Protect America – Now that Alexa has an official home security integration option, you can get more systems to work on it than ever, including Protect America. You can now give your smart security system plenty of convenient vocal commands like:
- "Alexa, lock the garage door"
- "Alexa, ask Protect America to…" (then give it any vocal command that relates to your security system’s features)
- "Alexa, ask Protect America if the system is armed."
As the Amazon Echo becomes even more sophisticated, you can only expect more great features and capabilities to emerge in the world of home security.
