Wouldn't it be great if you were able to control your Springfield security system using only your voice? Take control when you pair your Vivint smart home to your current smart assistant, like Amazon's Alexa or Google Home. Once you launch the Vivint skill, you can fully operate all your security cameras, alarms, and home automation devices via your Nest or Echo speakers. Then when you're preparing to go to bed or leave the house, all you have to do is tell your smart device you’re headed out and watch your home transition into guard mode.

How can you sync your Springfield smart home to your Amazon Echo or Google Home

Follow these quick directions to link your Springfield smart home with your Amazon devices:

  • After you configure your Alexa device, enter the Amazon Alexa app on your smartphone and click on Skills & Games.

  • Search for the Vivint Smart Home Skill. You will see two different Alexa skills: Vivint Complete and Vivint Basic.

  • Enable both the Compete and Basic skills. The Complete skill enables you total management of your smart home components, but you need to start out with, "Alexa, ask Vivint to arm the alarms." The Basic skill empowers you to change lights, thermostats, and other automation devices by only saying, "Alexa, turn on the lights."

  • Alexa will need you to log into your Vivint account so it can pair.

  • You are able to operate your Vivint system with your Echo speakers.

  • Allow Google to manage your Vivint equipment and log into your Vivint system.

  • You can authorize your devices to various parts of the house to make your Google Home experience more user-friendly.

  • Finish by saying, "Hey, Google, sync with Vivint," and you are free to use your Vivint equipment with Google smart speakers.

What voice commands can you use with your Nest or Echo speakers?

You can operate almost every piece of your Springfield smart home through your favorite AI assistant. Monitor the situation with your smart alarms and cameras, adjust to a pre-determined setting, or tinker with the details of a setting via simple vocal commands. Or ask your Nest or Echo device to organize your security system just like you could with the Vivint App.

Check out a few voice commands you will be able to give to your AI assistant:

  • “Set my security system to away.”

  • “Latch the back door.”

  • “Switch off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I forget the garage door open?”

  • "Save a clip of my doorbell camera."

  • "Turn down the heat 2 degrees."

  • “Turn off the bedroom light in half an hour.”

Live stress-free when you program in procedures in your Google Home or Alexa app that utilize multiple functions. For instance, use "Alexa, I'm going out," and trigger your alarms, adjust the thermostat, and bolt the doors. Or create a routine for "movie night" and use your smart home to power off the lighting and adjust the temperature to to that perfect, cozy place.
