Arming Alarm Via Amazon Echo?

I am trying to integrate my home alarm which is a bunch of z-wave stuff running on Smart Things with the Amazon Echo.
Does anyone have any guidance on how to go about doing this? I think this might be doable using ifttt or something, but I could use some pointers in the right direction please.

Are you using Smart Home Monitor as your home alarm or something else?

Yes, currently using Smart Home Monitor.

One common method is to use a virtual switch. You could install the device handler below with switch on the command side and contact sensor on the attribute side. You then set a routine to trigger automatically based on this virtual switch/contact sensor. Inside that routine you arm your SHM.

Using Ask Alexa you can also accomplish this:
