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.” Note: The skill does not currently accept thermostat commands while the thermostat is in auto mode.
