Command Your Mobile Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can control your Mobile security system with your voice? Wouldn’t it be great if your Mobile home security system was even easier to control? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Mobile home security system you can create an intuitive boost.

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can access your security and automation system to control your lights, activate your locks, and send tripped alarm notifications to your phone and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re heading for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into guard mode. That’s a nice time saver when you’re hurrying to lock up quickly and can’t find the key pad.

How can you use Google Nest or Alexa with your Mobile security system:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant listen for the voice prompts for your security and automation system, you’ll need to enable the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can ask your AI assistant to perform many of the tasks that you can do in your mobile security app. With intuitive voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your system, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check to see if you left the garage door open.

You could use separate Google or Alexa skills to manage each separate camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can seem like a mess. One of the benefits of linking your Mobile security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that everything is found in a singular place. Luckily, you can personalize your home with all sorts of security and automation components and connect them with Google Nest or Alexa on install.

What Vocal Commands Can You Use When You Connect Your Mobile Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Alexa and Google can do more things than just turning on your smart lights or arming your alarm system. You can see the status of your camera or change your thermostat to a custom scene. You can also command your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your components just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Here are just a few commands for your Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You may also preset a routine within Alexa or Google that links many components together. For example, say “Google, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart door locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and turn off your smart lights. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and use the prompt to lower the smart bulbs and set the temperature to a more comfortable level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can pair together to make a preset scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Smart Devices From The Same Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Does linking your Mobile security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you order your alarms and cameras from one place, or can you build over time? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave wireless connections -- sometimes it’s simpler to have all your smart home devices connected at the time of install.

When you get your security, safety, and automation devices installed together, you make a powerful, unified system from the outset. Then you can program away and make routines and groups, and not have to reconfigure later. You could get different security components as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. Simply ensure that any extra alarms, cameras, or smart items are entered to your ADT system first, and then have your AI assistant respond using the ADT phrases.
