Ooma now works with the Google Assistant so you can use your voice to control your Ooma system from a Google Home, an Android device, or an iOS device.
Stay in the know. Control by voice.
Check security status You don’t even need to get up from your sofa to learn the status of any sensor in your home. The Ooma Google Action will tell you whether any part of your Ooma Home security is in the alert state, like ifa particular door or window is open. It will also inform you if there are sensors whose battery will need to be replaced soon.
Disarm Allows you turn off the alarm by voice in the event that your smartphone isn’t around or has a dead battery. Before the system can be disarmed, you’ll need to provide your PIN code.
Things you can say
When talking to the Ooma Google Action, remember to begin your conversation by saying “Hey Google, ask Ooma…” and then continue with a relevant word or a phrase.
To check the security status, you could say something like:
Hey Google, ask Ooma…
…how is house
…to provide status
…to get security status
To disarm the system, say something like:
Hey Google, ask Ooma…

…to turn off with PIN 1234
Don’t worry about trying to remember the exact phrase. It’s likely that the artificial intelligence inside Google Assistant will understand what you’re trying to do.
