I have a Z-Wave Kwikset 914 deadbolt that I need to lock and unlock from inside the house using an Alexa or Google personal assistant, preferably both. That physical lock is included in my list of devices on the Hubitat; however, it can only be locked or unlocked manually or via the app or web interface.
I want to be able to say a simple command like, "Alexa, unlock deadbolt." And have that command perform the action.
I have the lock enabled in both the Alexa and Google app on the Hubitat and cannot control it as I can virtually any other device. I assume there are some security concerns with performing actions like this, but in my case, it is a necessity, and I have not been able to find any answers.
I had been able to perform this action using a different brand controller with the same Kwikset 914 named "deadbolt" using both Alexa and Google. "Alexa (or Google), turn on (or turnoff) deadbolt," was the command, and it worked flawlessly; however, I will no longer be using that hub. Any ideas?
