Wouldn't it be great if you had the ability to use your Springfield security system using only voice commands? Take control when you connect your Vivint smart home to your preferred AI assistant, like Google Home or Amazon’s Alexa. After you initiate the Vivint skill, you can control all your alarms, security cameras, and home automation devices with your Nest or Echo device. Then when you're ready to say goodnight or head to work, all you have to do is tell your assistant you’re headed out and watch your home transition into guard mode.

How do you link your Springfield smart home to your Google Home or Amazon Echo

Stick to these quick directions to sync your Springfield smart home with your Amazon components:

  • Once you configure your Alexa device, open the Amazon Alexa mobile app and find Skills & Games.

  • Locate the Vivint Smart Home Skill. You will see two separate Alexa skills: Vivint Basic and Vivint Complete.

  • Say yes to both the Compete and Basic skills. The Complete skill allows you nearly total management of your connected home security and home automation devices, but you have to say, "Alexa, ask Vivint to turn on the alarms." The Basic skill allows you to change lights, thermostats, and other automation equipment by simply saying, "Alexa, power on the lights."

  • Alexa will need you to log into your Vivint profile so it can link.

  • You are able to control your Vivint system with your Echo components.

If you use Google over Alexa, here is how to sync your Springfield smart home into your Google Nest:

  • Open the Google Home App and select the + icon in the top left part of the screen.

  • Select set up device and choose the Have Something Already Set Up choice.

  • Search for Vivint and press to link the accounts.

  • Allow Google to administer your Vivint devices and log into your Vivint system.

  • You can assign your devices to your rooms to make your Google Home experience more user-friendly.

  • Wrap up by saying, "Hey, Google, sync with Vivint," and you can now utilize your Vivint network with Google Nest devices.

What voice commands work with your Echo or Nest speakers?

You can operate almost every part of your Springfield smart home through your preferred AI assistant. See the status of your smart devices, transfer to a pre-determined setting, or minutely tweak a setting by user-friendly voice commands. Or ask your Echo or Nest device to arrange your system just like through the Vivint App.

Here are just a few voice commands you can give to Alexa or Google:

  • “Set my security system to away.”

  • “Secure the back door.”

  • “Switch off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • "Record a clip of my doorbell camera."

  • "Turn down the heat 5 degrees."

  • “Turn off the kid’s room light in 30 minutes.”

Live stress-free when you preset cycles in your Alexa or Google Home app that utilize different services. For instance, use "Alexa, I'm leaving," and set your alarms, adjust the thermostat, and lock the doors. Or make a routine for "date night" and order the command to lower the lighting and set the thermostat to how your family likes it.
