Previously, you could only lock doors with Alexa, as unlocking them with your voice was considered a security risk. However, Amazon has managed to find a way around this by implementing a voice code that you have to say to confirm any unlock action.
To get started, launch the Alexa app and then tap the menu button in the top left corner of the screen.
Select «Smart Home» from the menu.
Scroll down and tap the smart lock you want to unlock with your voice.
Click «Edit» in the top right corner.
Click the «Unblock by Voice» toggle switch to enable the option.
Click «OK» when the pop-up appears.
