Don’t want to get up from the middle of a movie but you’re not sure if you locked the front door? Ask to lock the front door. A little hot or too cold, ask to set the living room to heat or AC mode. Whatever the scenario, the action adds convenience to monitoring and controlling your system. Here are a few examples of other commands (start with “Ok Google, ask…”): Security “…Arm stay my security system.” “…Is my security system armed?” Lights “…Turn the living room light on.” “…Set the living room light to 80 percent.” “…Turn the living room light down.” “…Turn off the lights.” Thermostat “…Set the kitchen thermostat to 72 degrees.” “…Increase the temperature by 2 degrees.” “…Set the kitchen to AC mode.” “...the temperature.” Door Locks & Garage Doors “…Lock the front door.” “…Shut the garage door.” “…Is the front door unlocked?” “…Is the garage door open?” Want to interact with multiple devices at once? Name the devices with a common location and make the request plural. For example: “…Turn off the bedroom lights.” “…Lock the front doors.”

Worlds great worth my google devices

The functionality here is very basic, such as turning on a light or setting the temperature. However, there are some important features missing for no apparent reason: 1) You can't trigger any of your scenes. Why is that? 2) You can't control any of your groups; in fact, they specifically say "Want to interact with multiple devices? Name the devices with a common location". How does that make any sense when they already have device groups? 3) You can't ask for the temperature reading of any remote temperature sensors; it will only tell you the temperature from your main thermostat.

"secure actions are not currently supported" ...the app won't let me unlock the door or disarm alarms..only allows setting alarm and locking doors

It works properly although sometimes it stops! I think it is all about security.

Needs support for additional commands and authentication. It can arm, but not disarm with routines. Could be a have changer for me, if they every follow through with what they have promised (press releases have identified this as a priority!)

Inconsistent, insecure, and lacking functionality.

Not secured enough. Does not support two factor authentication.

Worthless. Doesn't support 2 step authentication and cannot disarm the security system.
