The Alula Alexa Security Skill allows users to operate the Connect+ security system with voice commands through their Alexa-enabled devices.
To get started first add Alula to your Alexa by installing the Alula Skill.
1. Download and Open the Alexa application on your smartphone.
2. Select “Skills & Games” from the slide out menu on the left of the screen (tap the 3 parallel lines on the top left corner to expose menu)
3. Search for “alula” without quotes. Tap the Alula app from the list that appear then tap “Enable” to add the Alula Skill to your Alexa.
4. Sign in with your Username and Password that you use with the Alula app.
Once our skill is added Alexa will now be able to react to the “My Security System” command. The basic pattern is to say “Alexa, ask/tell My Security System to…” Some specific example as are as follows.
Alexa, ask My Security System to arm to stay.
Alexa, tell My Security System to arm to away.
Alexa, tell My Security System to arm to night.
Alexa, ask My Security System for status.
Alexa, ask My Security System to disarm using 1,2,3,4 (you may use any valid code for your panel).
Future developments will be added for Z-Wave control, Scene trigger, and even controlling more than one Connect+. At the time of this article only controlling the security side is supported. Published 06/25/2018.
