As of 2019, you can now control your abode Security system and some connected devices via Google Assistant. You can arm & disarm your system, view live video of your abode cameras, control locks & lights, and check in on the status of your doors & windows.
Arming & Disarming
You can arm & disarm your system anytime with your voice. Just say the below:
- “Ok Google, arm abode to away mode”
- “Ok Google, arm abode to home mode”
- “Ok Google, disarm abode”
- When asked to disarm, Google will ask you for the PIN code you set up in your integrations settings on the abode app
You can have your screen-enabled Google Assistant pull up live video from your abode camera.
- “Ok Google, show me my front door camera”
Locks & lights
Any abode-compatible lock or light that is connected to your abode system can be controlled by voice through Google Assistant.
- “Ok Google, lock my front door”
- “Ok Google, turn my bedroom lights on”
Doors & Windows
You can use Google Assistant to get the status of your abode door & window sensors anytime.
- “Ok Google, is my patio door open?”
- “Ok Google, is my kitchen window closed?”
We will continue to update the abode Integration as Google adds more functionality to the Smart Home API.
