Before you decide to add a smart security device to your home, it is important to find out whether or not it’s compatible with your smart home ecosystem. When adding a smart lock to your door, compatibility doesn’t just make your life easier, it may save your life! The Wyze Lock works with many smart home assistants, but does the Wyze Lock work with Google Home? 

The Wyze Lock can be used with Google Home to enable hands-free control to lock and unlock the device and check the lock’s status. However, there are specific requirements for integration you must follow to safeguard your home security, both when setting up your Wyze Lock and when pairing it with Google Home. 

Now that we know the Wyze Lock works with Google Home, we need to get into the setup process to make sure that our Lock integrates seamlessly and safely. Let’s get started!

Setting Up A Wyze Lock

Before you can integrate your Wyze Lock with your Google Home, you will need to set the Lock up by connecting to the gateway and pairing the device with the Wyze app. We’ve provided step-by-step instructions for each part of the process in this section.  

Gateway Setup

The Wyze Gateway acts as the communication hub between the Lock and the Wyze app and will need to be set up after you create your account, but before pairing the Lock with the app. This is because the Wyze Lock uses your device’s Bluetooth connection to pair.

If you haven’t set up the Wyze Gateway, you will need to do so before connecting the Lock to the Wyze app to connect using your home wifi network. If you already have an active Gateway close to the location of the Lock, you will connect to this Gateway during the pairing process. 

Connecting to The Wyze App

To connect your Wyze Lock to the Google Home app, you will need to create an account on the Wyze app and pair your Lock. Before beginning, make sure you are in close contact with the Lock location, and that you have already completed the installation process for your Wyze Lock. 

To set up your Lock in the Wyze app, follow the steps provided below: 

  1. Sign in to the Wyze app
  2. Turn your device’s Bluetooth on
  3. Select Home 
  4. Select the plus sign in the top left corner
  5. Select Add Device
  6. Select Home
  7. Select Wyze Lock
  8. Select the Wyze Gateway 
  9. Remove the Wyze Lock battery cover
  10. Press and hold the pairing button at the top of the device until the Lock beeps
  11. After the light on the Lock begins to flash, select Next in the app. The indicator light will stop flashing and the app will notify you when the setup is complete.
  12. Follow the in-app instructions to finish setting up and calibrating your Lock

Integrating With Google Home

After setup is completed, you can integrate your Lock with Google Home. For security purposes, you will need to set a PIN for the Lock as part of the Google Home authorization process. In this section, we lead you through the process to integrate the Lock with Google Home.

Setting Your PIN

Setting a PIN for this device on Google Home is required to control your Lock with voice commands. This is to protect your home from accidental or unauthorized locking or unlocking. To set up your PIN, follow the steps below: 

  1. Select the Wyze App
  2. Select your Wyze Lock
  3. Select the Settings gear icon
  4. Select Third-Party Integration
  5. Select Reset PIN
  6. Create a 4 digit PIN on the Google Home PIN Screen for Google Home authorization
