How can you sync your Lake Havasu smart home to your Google Home or Amazon Echo

Follow these easy steps to sync your Lake Havasu smart home to your Alexa speaker:

  • After you install your Echo device, open the Amazon Alexa app and hit Skills & Games.

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

  • Enable both the Basic and Complete skills. The Complete skill allows you complete management of your connected home security and home automation components, but you need to say, "Alexa, ask Vivint to turn on the alarms." The Basic skill enables you to control thermostats, lights, and other automation pieces by only saying, "Alexa, flip on the lights."

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

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

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

You can operate nearly every part of your Lake Havasu smart home with your favorite AI assistant. See the status of your smart components, transfer to a preset template, or tinker with the details of a setting by user-friendly vocal commands. Or tell your Echo or Nest device to schedule your entire security system just like you could through the Vivint smartphone app.

Check out a few commands you can assign to your AI assistant:

  • “Change my security system to away.”

  • “Secure the back door.”

  • “Switch off my family room light.”

  • “Did I forget the garage door open?”

  • "Save a clip of my outdoor camera."

  • "Turn down the heat 5 degrees."

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

Live stress-free when you program in cycles in your Google Home or Alexa app that leverage different functions. For instance, use "Google, I'm leaving," and arm your alarms, adjust the thermostat, and bolt the doors. Or craft a preset for "movie night" and order the command to lower the lights and adjust the thermostat to just the right level.
