Looking for an Elexa/Echo Capable Deadbolt that can "Unlock by Voice"?

1,512 753 December 14, 2017 at 10:25 AM
I see many Smart Deadbolts available that are compatible with the Amazon Echo. However most of them state "Unlock by Voice" Not Available. My elderly mother's health is not what it used to be, would love to find a device where she can lock/unlock the door while in bed using Alexa. Anyone know of a Smart Deadbolt that has that feature? Preferably without a hub, but that's not a deal breaker.

I think the mfg's are realizing a burglar could walk up to a house and shout "alexa unlock the door" or call and say that through an answering machine.

Might be easier for people to contact you for access and then you can unlock on your phone. Even if alexa won't do it, there are other ways she could do it using an app on a tablet or a button on a zwave remote configured to unlock the door.

Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?
Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?

I would assume there's an applet or if/then program that could handle this via IFTTT. Check it out https://ifttt.com/discover

a quick search https://ifttt.com/lockitron

I believe this will work

https://lockitron.com/

With Lockitron bridge (sold separately) you can open a world of connectivity and begin controlling your bolt through voice powered by Amazon Alexa and Alexa devices. Simple installation and smart functionality made accessible to everyone. This bolt comes in our popular Quicksilver finish

looks like Amazon did not want to allow the unlock feature but Apple does allow it

Use IFTTT and most of the devices should work.
