When using Smart Home Security, how does voice control work in different modes?

Last updated

Share:

Smart Home Security offers two kinds of voice control:

  1. Alexa, which is a voice interface from Amazon, and requires you to connect your Amazon account
  2. OK Security, which is a voice interface from Honeywell to control and operate Smart Home Security

Both types of voice control interfaces are offered in HOME, NIGHT, and OFF system modes; they are both disabled in AWAY mode to ensure your security.

With Alexa, you can just ask Smart Home Security to hear the news, check the weather, get the latest sports scores, and more. Playing music, reading audiobooks, and dropping in on other Amazon Echo devices that are enabled with Alexa are not possible at this time.

With OK Security, you can change system modes by saying, "OK Security", pausing for a moment as the Camera Base Station will light up in blue when it hears you, and then saying the appropriate phrase that matches the system mode you'd like to set.

  1. For AWAY, say "OK Security, I'm leaving" or "OK Security, Away"
  2. For NIGHT, say "OK Security, Bedtime"

You can also control the camera on your Camera Base Station by saying, "OK Security", pausing for a moment as the Camera Base Station will light up in blue when it hears you, and then saying "Cameras ON" or "Cameras OFF".
