Smart locks have become increasingly popular in recent years, and one of the reasons is that they can be integrated with various smart home systems. Many smart lock brands, such as August and Schlage, work with popular voice assistants like Google Home or Alexa. This means that you can control your smart lock with voice commands, like “Alexa, lock the front door” or “Hey Google, unlock the back door.”
To use your smart lock with Google Home or Alexa, you typically need to connect it to your home’s Wi-Fi network and enable the smart home skill or action for your lock brand within the voice assistant app. Once set up, you can control your lock with voice commands or through the respective app on your smartphone or tablet. Keep in mind that certain features may be limited when using voice commands, such as unlocking your door without a secure PIN or code.
