New! You can now lock your doors by asking Alexa.
Control your Vivint lights and thermostats with easy-to-use voice commands (for Vivint Sky consumers only). After a few easy setup steps you can control your Vivint lights or thermostats with simple statements like:
Alexa, turn on Bedroom lamp
Alexa, turn off Kitchen lights
Alexa, set Basement to 50%
Alexa, dim Living Room
Alexa, brighten Bedroom
Alexa, lock my Front Door
Alexa, is my Basement Door locked?
Note: To keep your home secure, we do not allow anyone to unlock a door through Alexa. To unlock doors, please use the Vivint app.
Alexa, set Upstairs to 70 degrees
Alexa, increase Bedroom temperature
This skill allows you to control your smart devices without saying “Ask Vivint” or “tell Vivint”. For example, if you have named your smart light bulb “Kitchen Lights”, you can say “Alexa, turn on the kitchen lights”
HOW TO GET CONNECTED
1. Tap the “Enable” button
2. Enter your Vivint Sky username and password
3. After successfully connecting to your Vivint account, talk to your Echo and say, “Alexa, discover my devices”.
4. Optional: Enable the other Vivint Smarthome Skill (Called “Vivint.Smarthome – Complete”), under Skills in the Alexa app, to control more functions in your Vivint system like garage doors, the security system, locks, and cameras.
Note: When using the skill, you need to specify the name of thermostat or light you want to use. Device names can be changed in your Vivint Sky app.
