Change the temperature
Knowing the temperature is good, but when you’re too hot, you just want to cool down. So, we included the ability to voice-adjust your thermostat by value or comfort level.
Adjust by value: Okay Google: ask Alarm.com to turn down thermostat by three degrees.
Adjust by comfort level: Okay Google: ask Alarm.com to turn the temperature down. A comfort level command will adjust the thermostat by two degrees Fahrenheit.
Of course, you can always specify a temperature: Okay Google: ask Alarm.com to set the temperature to 72.
Control whole groups of devices
For your home’s smart lights, which you likely have in several locations, you can interact with them by calling out a single device, group, or general device type. For example:
Okay Google: ask Alarm.com to switch on the living room lamp.
Okay Google: ask Alarm.com to switch on the office lights.
And, at bedtime: Okay Google: ask Alarm.com to turn off the lights.
The same goes for your smart locks, with the ability to lock the house down with a single command: Okay Google: ask Alarm.com to lock the doors.
