On the heels of new Amazon Alexa capabilities, at Schlage we’re proving that we aren’t done innovating! In fact, today we’re announcing that the Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt now works with Google Assistant. With the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter, you can connect your Schlage Sense smart lock with your Google Assistant-enabled devices. This allows you to ask Google Assistant to check the status of your lock and command it to lock hands-free using just your voice. Here’s everything you need to know before you get started.

Yes. All current Schlage Sense lock models will be compatible with Google Assistant-enabled devices through the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter.

2. How do I connect my Schlage Sense lock with Google Assistant?

In order to use the Schlage Sense lock with Google Assistant-enabled devices, users must connect the deadbolt to the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter, sold separately. Follow the setup steps within the app to link your Schlage account with your Google Assistant account, then add the Schlage action. Once connected, users will be able to access their lock using voice activation.

3. Which Google Assistant voice activation commands work with the Schlage Sense lock?

Google Assistant users can lock and check the status of their Schlage lock. This offers consumers the peace of mind and convenience of knowing their homes are always locked and protected by one of the strongest, most convenient locks on the market.

4. Which Google Assistant voice activation commands will not work with the Schlage Sense locks?

Schlage is committed to providing consumers with a suite of keyless electronic products developed to address their need for convenient and secure locks. With this in mind, Google Assistant voice control commands are not enabled to unlock or create/maintain secured codes because a second authentication step is not available for Google Assistant. Offering an additional authentication step for any actions that can impact the security of the home is part of Schlage’s commitment to offering solutions that are both convenient and secure.

5. Why can’t I unlock my Schlage Sense lock with Google Assistant using voice control?

Schlage has a legacy in producing the strongest locks in the industry that offer easy ways to add another layer of security, and even make it smarter. This legacy and commitment remains true with Google Assistant-enabled devices. With this in mind, Google Assistant voice control commands are not enabled to unlock or create/maintain secured codes because a second authentication step is not available for Google Assistant. Offering an additional authentication step for any actions that can impact the security of the home is part of Schlage’s commitment to offering solutions that are both convenient and secure. Schlage’s focus continues to be ensuring that the power of unlocking a home remains in consumers' hands directly.

6. Why can’t I add or delete user codes on my Schlage Sense lock with Google Assistant?

Already trusted in over 40 million homes, Schlage always aim to create carefully designed products that bring the possibilities and potential of every door in your home to life – keeping you safe and making life easier and more connected. We are unwilling to compromise that, especially when it comes to smart home integrations. Therefore, we always want to ensure something like adding and delete user codes remain in the users’ hands directly, rather than relying on third-party components.
