How can I control Smart Home Security by voice using Alexa?

You can change your Smart Home Security system’s mode with simple voice commands.

  • Set your system to away mode
    • “Ok Security, I’m leaving.”
    • “Ok Security, away.”
  • Set your system to night mode
    • “Ok Security, bedtime.”

Using built-in Amazon Alexa, your Base Station can work like an Amazon Echo.

  • Features: Ask built-in Amazon Alexa to play music, tell you the weather forecast, switch on a lamp, turn up the thermostat, dim the lights, and more, just like an Amazon Echo.

  2. Tap "Skills and Games"
  3. Search for Honeywell Home
  4. Tap "Enable skill"
  5. Log in to discover your devices
