Wouldn't it be great if you could power your Concord security system with your voice? You can when you pair your Vivint smart home to your preferred smart assistant, like Amazon's Alexa or Google Home. After you activate the Vivint skill, you can control all your alarms, cameras, sensors, and home automation devices with your Nest or Echo device. Then when you're preparing to go to bed or head to work, it’s as easy as telling your assistant you’re headed out and watch your home transition into guard mode.

How do you pair your Concord smart home to your Google Home or Amazon Echo

Simply adhere to these quick directions to sync your Concord smart home to your Alexa components:

  • Once you install your Echo device, log into the Amazon Alexa app on your smartphone and click on Skills & Games.

  • Locate the Vivint Smart Home Skill. You’ll find two different Alexa skills: Vivint Complete and Vivint Basic.

  • Enable both skills. The Complete skill provides you almost complete control of your smart home components, but you will have to start out with, "Alexa, ask Vivint to arm the alarms." The Basic skill allows you to adjust thermostats, lights, and other automation pieces by simply saying, "Alexa, turn on the lights."

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

  • You are now free to operate your Vivint system with your Alexa components.

  • Find Vivint and press to link the accounts.

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

  • You can appoint your devices to different areas 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 with Google Nest devices.

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

You can operate almost every piece of your Concord smart home through your favorite AI assistant. See the situation with your smart alarms and cameras, swap to a preset template, or tinker with the details of a setting by simple voice commands. Or tell your Echo or Nest device to organize your system just like you could in the Vivint mobile app.

Check out a few commands you are able to give to your AI assistant:

  • “Arm my security system to away.”

  • “Latch the back door.”

  • “Turn off my family room light.”

  • “Did I forget the garage door open?”

  • "Record a clip of my indoor camera."

  • "Lower the heat 5 degrees."

  • “Turn off the kid’s room light in half an hour.”

Live stress-free when you set procedures in your Google Home or Alexa mobile app that combine different services. For instance, say "Google, I'm going out," and arm your alarms, adjust the thermostat, and secure the doors. Or craft a scene for "movie night" and ask your smart home to lower the lights and adjust the thermostat to to that perfect, cozy place.
