Alarm.com and Amazon Echo

Tired of your kids and pets not listening. What if I told you that your house would listen to anything you told it to do? Pretty cool, right?

I would like to introduce you to Alarm.com’s integration with Amazon Echo. A skill can be added to Echo to give you complete control over anything that your Alarm.com alarm system controls. That means that you have control over not only your alarm system but your lights, thermostat, locks, garage door, and much, much more. You talk to Echo and address it by the name Alexa. Just say, “Alexa turn off the family room lights” and just like that, they are off. It’s that easy.

Imagine this: you are going to sleep at night and you can’t remember whether or not you locked the front door. Say “Alexa did I lock the front door?” In a second she will respond and if you forgot you can have her lock the door.

With Alarm.com you can even have Alexa execute different rules. So if every time you arm your system to stay you want the doors to lock, she can do that. If it’s night time you can even have the lights shut off with it. The possibilities are nearly endless.

These skills are not just for security though they are also for comfort. If you want Alexa to adjust the thermostat you can tell her and not have to get up off the couch while you are watching your favorite team play.
