Amazon Alexa Devices Quickstart Guide
Voice Control with Amazon's Alexa
Set-Up in Four Easy Steps
1. Install Your Alexa-Enabled Device. Get voice control for your Alarm.com smart home system with any
Alexa-enabled device, including the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Tap or FireTV Voice Remote. Follow the
installation instructions that came with the device. Now you're ready to sync the device with Alarm.com.
2. Log in to the Alexa App. Download the Alexa app on your iOS or Android device. Then login to the
Alexa app using your Amazon.com account credentials.
3. Enable the Alarm.com Skill. To find the Alarm.com Skill, tap on the "Skills" option located
in the sidemenu within the Alexa app. Type in "Alarm.com" and then tap "Enable Skill."
4. Sync Alarm.com with Alexa. You'll be prompted to enter your Alarm.com account login and
password to sync your account with Alexa.
Start Talking to Alexa
Simply ask your system to perform commands or to learn
the status of your smart home devices. Each time, begin by
saying "Alexa, ask Alarm.com." (In the case of the FireTV
Voice Remote, just press and hold the microphone button
and say "Ask Alarm.com.") You'll be able to change the
thermostat, dim the lights, close the garage door, point a
pan-tilt camera to a preset direction, and more!
For security reasons, Alexa will not disarm the system,
unlock a door or open the garage door.
For questions about the Alexa Skill,
please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
