Connecting to smart lights

Can SimpliSafe work with other smart devices. For example, turn on the lights when I open the front door? Or remind me to close the garage door if it's been open for 5+ minutes?

@eysteinngudni From your lips to the ears of Simplisafe product development engineers. Unfortunately, the answer is a hard no currently.  The digital assistant "integration" is virtually useless (yeah, they can arm the system and tell you if its armed (oooh, ahhhhh) but that's about it.  I am sure there are valid reasons for not providing this capability but still would like to see it yesterday. I have nine indoor and outdoor lights I would like to integrate with SS3 to turn them all on in an alarm event!

Simplisafe, another topic for an interactive webinar in the online community!

@eysteinngudni​ LOL. Hardly.  My wife will tell you I sometimes can't handle a screwdriver..which end do you hold....no, just a very loyal customer for over 10 years, starting with SS2 and then SS3. Thank you for the compliment!

The SS online community is a great place to meet other customers, SS associates and is connected to the Help Center, where are great videos, charts and articles to answer your questions. Also, the online support chat and call center agents are a very friendly helpful group who are always more than welcome to help us customers. The number and operating hours are at the bottom of every page.

Hi all,

The Captain is correct, the answer is currently no. I can tell you that from a technical standpoint, it's likely possible to have that kind of deep integration with third party platforms, but would take a lot of time and effort to implement, especially in a secure way. So I wouldn't say never, just not at this time.

Alexa has a option to create a routine. Creating a name or saying to Alexa that involves SS  + whatever smart lights or settings to link with that routine name.

@jghandy1124​ Up to now anything I have attempted to use an Alexa routine to accomplish this has failed. If you were successful, can you post the routine structure you used? Thanks!
