Amazon Unveils New Door Lock API To Simplify Alexa Commands

Amazon’s new Door Lock API, application program interface, was added to Alexa Skills Kit. The API will improve voice commands for a several of the company’s lock partners, including Z-Wave, August, Yale, Vivint, Kwikset and Schlage.

The Skill name must be included in the voice command. For instance, Schlage Sense customers utilizing an Alexa custom Skill must say, “Alexa, ask Schlage to unlock my front door.” Some customers will find this voice command a little too lengthy, while others will just be happy to be able to control their Smart Lock with Alexa.
