hey DIY is joy from alarm grid and today we're going to show you how to set up Google home with the Simon XTi or XT or XT i-5 system now this process is going to be the same on any panel but today we're going to show you how to do it on the XT I as this is what we have connected to alarm comm and this is the middle-of-the-road panel which you'll likely see if there's a Simon installed now Google Home is an application or a feature supported by Google that lets you perform things in the home based on voice and it lets you tie different automation devices together it's very similar to something like apple homekit or the functionality that Alexa is currently using the nice thing about Google home though is that you can tie it into your alarm comm app and you can tell it to do specific things such as arm system lock the door or their basic stuff like that they have been including more functionality to it or they've been in they've been upgrading the app as time goes on to have it do more things you'll see on the main app store or where the integrations are what it can currently do and if you just keep your eyes peeled you'll see that they're gonna be adding more stuff as time goes forward now we have the xti setup it has our alarm comm module in there it's activated on alarm comm and it also has a z-wave module installed in it and afford the video I actually set up this quick set z-wave lock and this is programmed into our Simon system and just to prove that it does work I'm going to click the gear I'm going to press it down I'm gonna go to door lock I'm gonna click lock I'm going to enter my default code the 1 2 3 4 and as we can see it locks the lock so let me just unlock it so we get it ready for our next integration and this is shaking a little bit because I have the screws currently out of it so I'm gonna back out so now we know that our lock is programming to the system and that it does work so now I'm going to head over to our Google pixel tablet I'm going to show you how to actually integrate your alarm com account with your Google home account so we noticed that when the the tablets actually in a certain recording mode it won't respond to a voice but normally you can just say okay Google and it will pull up a bar we'll have the same menu option but let me let me get this started for you we're going to use another method to access and Google's talking to us we're going to use another method to access the Google assistant so if we click this up here and then I already have it set as you can see because I searched for it before you click Google assistant now this right here is just the web browser so what you want to do is on the bottom click updates and you're going to see in the top right corner there's this little compass button that's what you want to click and that's going to get us into the Google assistant let me click it again so here we go this is where you're actually going to integrate your alarm comm app so you're going to want to search for alarm.com as you can see it's right here this will load it up and this is your integration for Google home as you can see right next to the symbol there's a link button so if we click the link button this will pull up a page that's going to let us integrate our alarm calm account with the Google home now I have one specifically made for for our Simon so let me just punch in this information just give me a moment and if I got it right it'll learn it in there you go and now you can see right there next to the symbol it says try it and send a device it's basically telling us that it is linked and if we scroll down a little bit and we click on the more you'll see the different things that you can say to the system for things to occur now it's not super robust yet and they are adding more in as time goes on as I said so keep checking back on the app just to see what features you do have but as you can see you can arm the system you can ask if the system's armed you can turn lights on you can lock doors and other such things you won't be able to tell it to disarm the system because that would be a bit of a security flaw if somebody could just yell that from outside your house you won't be able to tell it to unlock your door because that would be a no big security flaw but as you see we're all set up good to go so we're all done on the tablet and now let's head back over to our Simon and our quick set lock what we actually have set up also is a google home device itself and we're going to use this to talk to to get the lock to actually lock so we're good to go we have our z-wave lock and rolled to our Simon XTi system we have our Simon XTi system activated on alarm comm and we have our long comm account linked to our Google home account so now we should be able to operate the lock using our Google home based on voice so let's give it a shot let me just turn this around okay Google tell alarm com2 lock the door all right and as you can see just by telling Google home to lock the door it hits the Simon which then unlocks or locks the door and that's how to integrate a Simon XTi system that's activated on alarm calm
