How do you use a PIN w/voice commands? Wasn’t aware you can do that - is that referring to an Alexa feature (I have Alexa but almost never use it) or a Google Home option, or ?
What I was thinking of doing was simply just not calling my garage door a garage door.
For example, my wife and I have a few pieces of furniture in the house that we refer to frequently, and since they are all cabinets it’s not clear what we’re referring to if we simply say “It’s in the cabinet” - we have to say something more detailed like “the cabinet in the living room” or “the cabinet by the water cooler.”
So since we’re very lazy and want to use as few words as possible, we’ve actually named some of our furniture. Being a Hobbit/LOTR geek (from my childhood obsession w/the books) we’ve named a couple of our cabinets Frodo and Gandalf (Frodo cabinet is smaller than the Gandalf cabinet). So now we can just say “I put it in/on Frodo” or “Can you get me the serving platter from Gandalf?” Perfectly clear (for us!) and of course it’s a lot more fun to get a platter from Gandalf than from a simple cabinet.
So I was thinking I would rename the garage door Balrog or Bombur or something like that (since it’s much bigger than Frodo or Gandalf) so that we can control the garage door via voice, but no stranger can shout into our window to open the “garage door.” No one’s going to dare to try talk to a Balrog. Too scary.
Any reason that won’t work?
