Integrate August With Your Smart Assistants (Siri, Alexa, and the Google Assistant)

Integrate August With Your Smart Assistants (Siri, Alexa, and the Google Assistant)

Dec 12, 2019

Smart Speakers are the modern day assistants designed to answer your unanswered questions, make online purchases, and play your favorite songs, all at your request. August locks are one of the only smart locks on the market that works with all three major smart speakers: Apple HomePod, Amazon Echo, and Google Home, as well as, their Assistants: Siri, Alexa, and the Google Assistant. With the August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge, your August Smart Lock or August Smart Lock Pro are enabled to integrate with these Smart Speakers and Assistants. Without the August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge, you can control these locks through your Android or iPhone app voice assistants: Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant.

 

While the August Smart Lock Pro + Connect works with all three Speakers, the August Smart Lock + Connect only works with Amazon Echo and Google Home.

Below are some ideas on how you can integrate August into your weekly routine with the help of your Smart Speakers, their supported apps, and the August App.

 

Becoming a part of your day-to-day routine

With Google Routines, you can customize your Google Home to work seamlessly with your August Smart Lock Pro or August Smart Lock. Check out how to set up a Google Routine here, below are some examples that we think are pretty awesome. 

When you’re heading out:

Google Home

Just say, “Hey Google, I’m leaving.” to automate your Google Home to pause your music or podcast and unlock your August Smart Lock Pro or August Smart Lock

 

This request also works with Siri & Apple HomeKit (only with the August Smart Lock Pro) and Amazon Alexa, with both August Locks, by stating, “Hey Siri/Alexa, please unlock my door.”

While you're at work:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

iPhone August Activity Feed

Double check that your door has been locked with your Google Assistant. Ask, “Hey Google, is my door locked?” This can also be checked through the August App via August’s DoorSense.

 

 

 

 

 

Before heading to bed:

 

 

 

 

Bedtime with Google Home

Just say, “OK Google, bedtime” to lock your August Smart Lock Pro or August Smart Lock, and automate any other integrations you might have like, setting your alarm, turning off the light, and playing sleep sounds.

This command also works with Siri & Apple HomeKit and Amazon Alexa through stating, “Hey Siri/Alexa, please lock my door.
