hi do I join from alarm grid and today we're going to talk about how to arm your Honeywell security system through Alexa now if you have a Honeywell system that is activated for monitoring and you have a total Kinect 2.0 app you will be able to interface that with your Alexa device it has some cool integrations you'll be able to arm the system you can interact with some automation devices and do some other basic things you won't be able to disarm the system with Alexa because that would be a security loop and something that somebody could exploit so when you go to integrate the skill in the skill Paige is actually gonna show you the different actions that you can use with the integration I highly recommend check and get out so you know what is possible with it we're actually going to associate it with our lyric right now the lyric is activated Auto AlarmNet and it does have total Kinect 2.0 associated with it and you will need that total Kinect 2.0 login to use this integration we also have our Alexa setup right on top of it so the system is good to go I'm gonna head over to our iPad and we're going to learn it in cool so on our iPad let's pull up our Alexa app I'm going to click the hamburger button and I'm going to click skills and games from here we're going to have to search for total Kinect 2.0 so I'm going to click the search bar on the top and type in Total Connect it should pull up as you can see it's right there on the drop down so let's click that and I'm going to click the app right here here's the skill page and as you can see right in the top it says enable and account linking is required so let's click the enable button this is going to connect it to Honeywell and it's going to prompt us to enter our login for Total Connect 2.0 so I'm going to go ahead and enter our credentials click login and it's going to prompt us to allow or to acknowledge that we're allowing this integration to occur I'm going to say allow because that's what you want and then we do have some automation devices connected to our lyric which is going to display right here so we do want to connect those two after that it's confirming that it was successfully linked and if I click the back arrow just to show you what I was talking about before if I scroll down to the skills page and whoops I clicked an Instagram pop-up if I scroll down on the skills page you'll see that the available actions that you can use with the integration are displayed right there so now that we know we're all set up I'm gonna back out and then back at our system we should be able to interact with the lyric system with the Alexa so let's give it a shot Alexa what's this ask Honeywell what the status of my security system is she ignored me on that one Alexa asked Honeywell what the status of my security system is which is correct let me try to arm it with Alexa Alexa tell Honeywell to arm my security system stay as you can see the integration is set up and working if you do have an Alexa at home with a Honeywell system with Total Connect 2.0 I highly recommend checking out the integration as it's built right into Alexa and it works pretty great for what it is if you do have any questions about this integration Alexa or the lyric system itself feel free to give us a call eight at eight eight one eight seven seven to it and we're gonna date at eight eight one eight seven seven to eight head over to our website did enjoy the video feel free to subscribe and if you want to be posted or updated when we post future videos hit the notification button below and they'll send you an update when we do so thanks for watching and have a great day
