Amazon API - Native Smart Lock Control/Query Added, HomeSeer to Add for use?

Hello,

With the addition of Smart Lock Control/Query to the Alexa/Amazon API, is HomeSeer going to add that to the Connected Home API for us to use?

Amazon release info here:

https://developer.amazon.com/blogs/p...rt-home-skills

If so, we would finally be able to do the following without having to install the Skill:
  • A customer requests the deadbolt to lock the door, for example “Alexa, lock the living room door.”
  • A customer requests the lock status for a door, for example, “Alexa, is the living room door locked?”

I would also like to see this. Currently using "tell homeseer to lock the back door" etc, but would be nice to query the status or just tell Alexa to lock the door. I can remember what I need to say but making the family remember whether they have to say "tell homeseer" or not is really not conducive to getting them to use it.

I have this through the skill, but I have a virtual device that is not named door that I invoke to unlock the doors. I live in a very safe area, but I am not sure I would want the ability of someone through a partially open window asking Alexa to unlock the front door. But, I do see the convenience. If Alexa was tied to a particular voice it would be different for me or if it asked for a code. Maybe I am just paranoid.

I don't believe that the API includes any unlock function so it really isn't a security risk. Only locking and lock status....I would still like to see this happen. HS should add all API functions provided by Amazon integration.
