Command Your Scottsdale Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can command your Scottsdale security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be great if your Scottsdale home security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Scottsdale ADT security system you can create an exciting improvement.

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your wireless system to control your lights, lock your locks, and push tripped alarm alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring agents. Then if you’re heading for bed or to leave the house, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into guard mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re trying to get out of the house quickly and can’t get to the key pad.

Here’s how using your Scottsdale security system with Google Nest or Alexa works:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice commands turned on for your home security system, you’ll have to turn on the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your devices to perform many of the things that you can manage in your mobile security app. With easy voice commands, you can activate your alarms and sensors, adjust your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check to see if you left the garage door open.

Conversely, you can use different Google or Alexa skills to manage each camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can seem like a mess. One of the benefits of linking your Scottsdale security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that all your voice commands are found in the same skill. Luckily, you can personalize your house with all sorts of security and automation components and link them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

What Vocal Controls Can You Say When You Connect Your Scottsdale Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning off your smart bulbs or arming your alarms. You can also see the status of your camera or adjust your thermostat to a predetermined level. You can also tell your smart speaker to auto-adjust your devices just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these commands for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

  • “Record a clip from my front door camera.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You may also create a routine in Google or Alexa that combines many components together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving the house,” and lock your smart locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the thermostat, and flip off your smart lights. Or set a routine for “tv time,” and relax as Google lowers the lighting and turns up the air. The devices you can pair together to make a custom routine are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Automated Devices From The Same Place Or Mix And Match?

Does connecting your Scottsdale security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you get your components from one place, or can you build over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- most use z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s easier to have all your devices linked at the same time.

By having your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you make one united home security system from the start. Then you can design away and devise groups and routines, and know each command will work perfectly from the outset. You could add different smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you may have hope that they work in sync. Just make sure that any extra alarms, cameras, or smart items are linked to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond through the ADT skill.
