After wifely permission, I finally got to order a Schlage Connect lock today to go with our growing list of smart home gadgets. I see that it has Alexa integration as well through smartthings.
Then I started thinking about this. Our Echo is in the living room, along with the front door in question. Say we leave the window open a crack while we run to the store. Couldn’t someone just say “Alexa, unlock front door” and be in?
Is there a way to password-protect the unlock command, like having to say “Alexa, unlock front door 1-2-3-4” or something?
Granted, in our year plus of having smartthings and alexa, and no one’s stood outside turning on and off our lights. We’re typically paranoid enough to keep the front windows closed unless we’re home, but it’s just something I was thinking about.
