Schlage

Schlage's Sense Smart Deadbolt is now compatible with Google Assistant, giving users with enabled devices voice control over their lock. By saying, "OK Google, is my door locked?" or "OK Google, lock my door," Sense owners can check on the status of their deadbolt or lock it using Google Assistant. The company announced that Google Assistant support was on the way during CES earlier this year.

Schlage Sense locks also work with Siri and the company introduced the ability to unlock Sense deadbolts with Alexa earlier this month. To use Google Assistant with your Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt, you'll have to get a Schlage Sense WiFi adapter, through which you can also lock and unlock the smart deadbolt with your phone. However, even with the WiFi adapter, Google Assistant can only lock your door, not unlock it.

"Schlage has been at the forefront of IoT security solutions since launching the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt in 2014," Allegion's Rob Martens said in a statement. "This new integration and functionality is a testament to our ongoing commitment to raise the bar for innovation, convenience and security and to support consumers' choice of IoT platform."

Correction: The headline of this article originally stated that Google Assistant could unlock Schlage's Sense deadbolt. However, it can only lock your doors, not unlock them. We apologize for the error.
