Wouldn't it be ideal if you could use your Trenton security system with your voice? You’re in control when you pair your Vivint smart home to your preferred 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 Echo or Nest device. Then when you're getting things ready to go to bed or leave the house, Simply tell your home you’re headed out and relax as everything switches into guard mode.

Here’s more about linking your Trenton smart home to Google or Alexa:

How to pair your Trenton smart home to your Google Home or Amazon Echo

Simply adhere to these simple directions to sync your Trenton smart home to your Alexa speaker:

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

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

  • Turn on both skills. The Complete skill provides you almost comprehensive control of your connected home security and home automation components, but you need to start out with, "Alexa, ask Vivint to turn on the alarms." The Basic skill enables 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 account so it can link.

  • You are able to control your Vivint system with your Alexa speakers.

  • Select the Google Home mobile app and press the + icon in the top left corner.

  • Click on set up device and press the Have Something Already Set Up selection.

  • Locate Vivint and tap to tether the accounts.

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

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

  • Complete the process by saying, "Hey, Google, sync with Vivint," and you can now use your Vivint equipment with Google devices.

What voice commands work with your Nest or Echo speakers?

You can use nearly every function of your Trenton smart home with your favorite AI assistant. Check the situation with your smart components, adjust to a pre-determined template, or tinker with the details of a setting by simple vocal commands. Or command your Nest or Echo speaker to organize your security system just like in the Vivint App.

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

  • “Arm my security system to away.”

  • “Lock all the doors.”

  • “Switch off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • "Keep a clip of my doorbell camera."

  • "Lower the heat 3 degrees."

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

Live stress-free when you program in procedures in your Google Home or Alexa mobile app that utilize multiple services. For instance, use "Google, I'm leaving the house," and trigger your alarms, adjust the thermostat, and bolt the doors. Or create a preset for "movie night" and ask your home to dim the lights and set the temperature to how your family likes it.
