Learn all the benefits of our top voice assistant integrations so you can transform your home routines to be both simpler and safer.
Why pair your Schlage smart lock with Amazon Alexa?
With Amazon Alexa, you can lock and unlock your Schlage smart lock with simple voice commands. Whether you’re coming home with your hands full after a long day or just don’t want to get up off the couch, “Alexa, lock the front door” is all it takes to lock your door. You can also trigger Alexa to check the status of your lock by asking: “Alexa, is the side door locked?” This hassle-free option gives you seamless access control and peace of mind. To unlock your Schlage smart lock through Alexa, you will need to give the lock a four-digit PIN that you create with the Alexa app. And with Schlage Encode products, you can even have Alexa alert you when your battery is running low and set up smart reorders so you have replacement batteries right when you need them.
One of biggest conveniences of integrating your Schlage smart lock with Amazon Alexa is the ability to set up automated smart home routines. These routines are essentially short cuts for Alexa, so you can initiate a series of actions with only one voice command. Build your own routine by opening the routines section in the Alexa app and selecting the + button in the top right corner to begin adding actions. One of our favorite automated routine ideas is “Goodnight alexa” – simply add all the actions that help simplify your bedtime routine, like locking the front door, turning off smart lights, powering down electronics, turning on the night light and starting sleep sounds.
Which Schlage Smart Locks work with Amazon Alexa?
All Schlage smart locks are compatible with Amazon Alexa. The Schlage Encode™ family of products, including Schlage Encode Plus™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt, Encode™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt and Encode™ Smart WiFi Lever are the easiest to set up with Amazon Alexa because their built-in WiFi can connect directly to Amazon Alexa without any additional hubs or accessories. The following Schlage smart locks can connect to Amazon Alexa when paired with the specified additional hub or accessory:
Why pair your Schlage smart lock with Google Assistant?
Pairing your Schlage smart lock with Google Assistant gives you the ability to check the status of your lock with “Hey Google, is my door locked?” and command it to lock with “Hey Google, lock my door.” These simple voice commands help make securing your home as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
With Google Assistant, you can also create routines that allow you to trigger multiple actions with a single command. This is one of our favorite features because it’s a time-saver that gives real peace of mind. For example, set up a routine like “Hey Google, I’m staying in” that automatically locks your smart locks, adjusts your smart thermostat, plays your favorite music, and tailors your smart lighting. How relaxing!
Which Schlage Smart Locks work with Google Assistant?
Google Assistant is compatible with all Schlage smart locks. Because they have built-in WiFi, the Schlage Encode family of products do not require a smart home hub or adapter to work with Google Assistant. Simply connect to your Google Assistant-enabled device directly through WiFi.
To connect the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt with a Google Assistant-enabled device, you will need the Schlage Sense WiFi Adapter. The Schlage Connect Z-Wave Plus Smart Deadbolt will need to be synced with a SmartThings hub.
Why pair your Schlage smart lock with Siri?
Select Schlage smart locks can be operated with Siri voice control to check the status of your lock or to lock the door. For an optimal experience, it is best to pair your device with an Apple Home Hub. First, you will need to set up a HomePod, HomePod mini, Apple TV, or iPad as a home hub. Once paired, you can control your smart lock with any of your Apple devices that support Siri – whether you are at home or away. Say “Hey Siri,” then follow with a command like “Lock the front door on my lake house.” You can also use Siri to enact scenes and automations created through the Apple Home app. To control your Apple Home-enabled accessory, the latest version of iOS, tvOS or iPadOS is recommended. To ensure security, if your Siri-enabled Apple device is locked, you won’t be able to use Siri to control your smart lock. You will need to unlock your device before using Siri to lock or unlock your door.
