You can now use your Google Assistant enabled device to interact with your abode home security system. Using the abode Smart Home action, you can:
- Arm and disarm your abode home
- Ask Google if your abode home is currently armed.
With the abode Smart Home action, you can interact with your abode home security system and abode-connected devices by voice. You can arm and disarm your home as well as interact with devices including cameras, locks, lights, dimmers, switches, plugs, and garage doors.
a voice code is required for security sensitive commands such as disarming your abode home, unlocking doors and opening garage doors. To enable, provide a voice code during account linking. You can always set or change you pin using the abode web app.
In order to use Google Assistant and abode, you will need:
- abode account with your username and password
- abode Smart Security Kit or abode Iota Security Kit
Device names such as “Office Lamp” and “Bedroom Switch” are recommended over names such as “Off Lamp” or “John & James”.
