Okay Google: Ask Beeyond Security to Secure My Home! 

Jan 14, 2019

It’s great to use your Beeyond Security mobile app to control your home when you’re out of the house. Back at home, though, voice control is a popular option that smart homeowners love. 

Now, you can keep your home more secure and comfortable by talking to Google Home, our newest voice-control integration. 

Our new Beeyond Security Action for Google Home enables you to control your Beeyond Security-powered home with intuitive voice commands for your smart security system, lights, thermostat, locks and garage doors.

Okay, Beeyond Security user: here’s what you can do. 

Arm your security system 

Kids in bed for the night? Finally sitting down for a movie? There’s no need to get up again—or even reach for your phone—to arm your security system for the night. 

“Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security to arm the security system.” 

Control access to your home 

Our Action makes it easy to secure your home’s perimeter, with voice control for smart locks and garage doors. 
Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security to close the garage. 
Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security to lock the front door. 

Check the status of devices 

Sometimes, you just need to know the status of things around your home. We’ve made it easy to ask: 
Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security: is the security system armed? 
Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security: what’s the thermostat temperature? 

Change the temperature 

Knowing the temperature is good, but when you’re too hot, you just want to cool down. So, we included the ability to voice-adjust your thermostat by value or comfort level. 
Adjust by value: Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security to turn down thermostat by three degrees. 
Adjust by comfort level: Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security to turn the temperature down. A comfort level command will adjust the thermostat by two degrees Fahrenheit. 

Of course, you can always specify a temperature: Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security to set the temperature to 72. 

Control whole groups of devices 

For your home’s smart lights, which you likely have in several locations, you can interact with them by calling out a single device, group, or general device type. For example: 

Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security to switch on the living room lamp. 

Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security to switch on the office lights. 

And, at bedtime: Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security to turn off the lights. 

The same goes for your smart locks, with the ability to lock the house down with a single command: Okay Google: ask Beeyond Security to lock the doors. 

Instructions for getting started 

Already got Google Home and Beeyond Security and raring to go? Here’s how to get started. 

First, enable the Beeyond Security action by telling your Google Home: “Okay Google, talk to Beeyond Security.” 

Next, open the Google Home app. Enter your Beeyond Security account login and password to sync your account. You’ll have the option to create your PIN as part of the setup process.
