Using & Setting Up The Amazon Echo With Alarm.com

Solution

1. Install Your Alexa-Enabled Device. Get voice control for your Alarm.com smart home system with any Alexa-enabled device, including the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Tap or FireTV Voice Remote. Follow the installation instructions that came with the device. Now you're ready to sync the device with Alarm.com.

2. Log in to the Alexa App. Download the Alexa app on your iOS or Android device. Then login to the Alexa app using your Amazon.com account credentials.

3. Enable the Alarm.com Skill. To find the Alarm.com Skill, tap on the "Skills" option located in the sidemenu within the Alexa app. Type in "Alarm.com" and then tap "Enable Skill."

4. Sync Alarm.com with Alexa. You'll be prompted to enter your Alarm.com account login and password to sync your account with Alexa.

Simply ask your system to perform commands or to learn the status of your smart home devices. Each time, begin by saying "Alexa, ask Alarm.com." (In the case of the FireTV Voice Remote, just press and hold the microphone button and say "Ask Alarm.com.") You'll be able to change the thermostat, dim the lights, close the garage door, point a pan-tilt camera to a preset direction, and more! For security reasons, Alexa will not disarm the system, unlock a door or open the garage door.

 

Just say..."Alexa, ask Alarm.com..."

"to Arm Stay my system."

"to lock my front door."

"Is my garage door closed?"

"Record a video clip to turn off all the lights"

"What temperature is it in here?"
