Google Nest paired with Vivint Home Security

Wouldn't it be great if you had the ability to use your Naperville security system by voice commands? Take control when you connect your Vivint system to your current AI assistant, like Amazon's Alexa or Google Home. When you activate the Vivint skill, you can control all your alarms, cameras, sensors, and home automation devices via your Nest or Echo device. Then when you're preparing to say goodnight or depart for vacation, it’s as easy as telling your assistant to guard the house and watch everything activate into guard mode.

Here’s more about pairing your Naperville smart home to Alexa or Google:

How do you link your Naperville smart home to your Amazon Echo or Google Home

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

  • Once you install your Echo device, enter the Amazon Alexa mobile app and hit Skills & Games.

  • Find the Vivint Smart Home Skill. You will have two different Alexa skills: Vivint Complete and Vivint Basic.

  • Turn on both the Basic and Complete skills. The Complete skill provides you nearly comprehensive control of your connected home security and home automation components, but you have to say, "Alexa, ask Vivint to turn on the alarms." The Basic skill enables you to adjust lights, thermostats, and other automation equipment by merely saying, "Alexa, flip on the lights."

  • Alexa will require you to log into your Vivint profile so it can connect devices.

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

If you like Google over Alexa, here is how to pair your Naperville smart home with your Google Nest:

  • Open the Google Home app on your smartphone and press the + icon in the top left part of the screen.

  • Select set up device and press the Have Something Already Set Up option.

  • Find Vivint and press to tether the accounts.

  • Permit Google to manage your Vivint equipment and sign into your Vivint system.

  • You can assign your devices to different areas to make your Google Home experience easier.

  • Complete the process by saying, "Hey, Google, sync with Vivint," and you are able to utilize your Vivint equipment with Google Nest devices.

What voice commands work with your Echo or Nest speakers?

You can use nearly every piece of your Naperville smart home with your AI assistant. See the condition of your smart components, transfer to a pre-determined template, or perform minute tweaks of a setting by easy voice commands. Or command your Nest or Echo speaker to organize your entire security system just like you could with the Vivint mobile app.

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

  • “Set my security system to away.”

  • “Latch the back door.”

  • “Power off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • "Keep a clip of my outdoor camera."

  • "Lower the heat 3 degrees."

  • “Turn off the kid’s room light in 30 minutes.”

Live stress-free when you program in routines in your Alexa or Google Home smartphone app that utilize many devices. For example, say "Google, I'm leaving the house," and arm your alarms, adjust the thermostat, and lock the doors. Or create a scene for "movie night" and use the command to dim the lighting and adjust the thermostat to just the right level.
