Will current Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt models be compatible with Amazon Alexa?

Yes, all current Schlage Encode lock models are compatible with Amazon Alexa, making it ideal for remote access for split-device households or owners who have not yet chosen a home automation system.

What hubs does the Schlage Encode lock work with?

The Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt is compatible with Alexa-enabled devices without requiring an additional hub. You can easily access you lock via voice command at any time.


How do I connect with Amazon Alexa?

To connect your Schlage Encode lock with an Alexa-enabled device, open the Schlage Home app and pair your phone with your deadbolt and connect it to your home Wi-Fi.

Once the lock is connected to your home Wi-Fi, you are ready to complete the setup within the Alexa app.


- Log into your Alexa app using your Amazon password.

- Enable the Schlage Home skill in the Alexa app.

- Link your Schlage account to your Alexa account. This will give the skill permission to access the lock.


To enable the unlocking feature – this is initially disabled by default for your security – create a four-digit PIN in the Alexa app now.






What can the Schlage Encode deadbolt and Amazon Alexa do?

After connecting the devices, you can ask Alexa to lock and unlock the door, check the status of your Schlage Encode deadbolt and send virtual keys via text to friends and family. This offers the peace of mind and convenience of knowing your home is always locked and protected by one of the strongest, most convenient locks on the market.


Voice unlocking is one the newest functions available in the integration between Schlage and Amazon Alexa. The feature was made possible through technological improvements that now require Alexa to authenticate the user’s identity prior to unlocking the door. The additional step helps to maintain the superior security you expect from Schlage while still enjoying the convenience of voice activation.

What can't the Schlage Encode lock and Amazon Alexa do?

Already trusted in over 40 million homes, Schlage always aims to create carefully designed products that bring the possibilities and potential of every door in your home to life – keeping you safe and making life easier and more connected. We are unwilling to compromise that, especially when it comes to smart home integration. With this in mind, Amazon Alexa is not enabled to check battery status or create/maintain secured codes. This ensures that control of these features remains directly in your hands, rather than relying on third-party components.


Whether asking Alexa from your bed if the front door is locked or manually securing your deadbolt from the touchscreen, the Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt provides all users with keyless convenience and confidence in home security. Add to those benefits that come when you pair your lock with the other technology in your home and there’s proof that smarter homes start with Schlage.
