Realize another level of security and automation convenience by connecting and controlling your Mountain Alarm system through Alarm.com and an Alexa-enabled device. Below are some requirements and the simple instructions on how to get started.
Compatibility The Alarm.com Skill is compatible with all Alexa-enabled Amazon devices (e.g., Echo Spot, Echo Dot, Echo Show, etc.)
Some compatibility considerations include: Doorbell cameras are not compatible with Amazon Alexa. It is not possible to play video on Echo device screens.
In order to use Alarm.com with Amazon Alexa, you must have:
• A customer account powered by Alarm.com.
• Lights, thermostats, locks, garage doors, security panel, or camera powered by Alarm.com. (Call Mountain Alarm at 1-888-349-3455 if you do not currently have interactive services.)
• A device with Amazon Alexa, such as the Echo or Echo Dot.
Important: The Amazon Alexa device must be set to English.
