Control Your Orlando Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your voice activated assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your wireless system to command your lights, set your smart locks, and send system alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into ”Guard” mode. That’s a nice convenience when you’re hurrying to get out of the house quickly and have your arms full.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice controls for your security system, you’ll want to turn on the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your smart speaker to perform many of the things that you can do in your mobile security app. With easy voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your system, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is up.

Conversely, you can use separate Google or Alexa skills to control each separate camera, alarm, and automation device, but that can grow to overkill. One of the benefits of pairing your Orlando security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is easily found in one skill. Luckily, you can outfit your home with alarms, automation, and security cameras as a package when you get your ADT security system.

What Vocal Commands Can You Say When You Pair Your Orlando Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just flipping on your smart bulbs or setting your alarms. You can also see the status of your camera or change any automation component to a custom scene. You may also command Alexa or Google to plan a timetable for your devices just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Try out these phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also create a routine within the Alexa or Google app that combines multiple devices together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and trigger your smart locks, arm your alarms, turn down the smart thermostat, and turn off your smart lights. Or set up a routine for “movie night,” and use the prompt to dim the smart bulbs and adjust the A/C to just the right level. The devices you can combine together for a preset routine are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Smart Devices From A Single Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Is linking your Orlando security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you get your alarms and cameras from the same place, or can you mix and match? While you can use different components -- many devices use z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s simpler to have all your smart home devices linked at the initial install.

When you have your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you create a powerful, united system from the start. Then you can program away and devise groups, routines, and custom commands, with all your devices working from the outset. You could mix and match your smart components as you go, but then you may have to troubleshoot to get them to work in sync. Just make sure that any additional components are paired to your home security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT voice prompts.
