Command Your Jefferson City Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can access your wireless system to turn on your lights, activate your door locks, and send tripped alarm alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to leave the house, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras spring into ”Guard” mode. That’s a nice convenience when you’re hurrying to get out of the house quickly and can’t mess with the phone app.

How can you pair Google Nest or Alexa with your Jefferson City security system:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To turn on voice prompts on your security system, you’ll want to turn on the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can ask your AI assistant to perform almost all of the things that you can manage in your mobile security app. With intuitive voice controls, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, control your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use other Google or Alexa skills to manage each alarm, sensor, and automation device, but that can seem like a mess. One of the perks of linking your Jefferson City security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that every voice command for every component is found in a singular place. Luckily, you can outfit your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras at the same time when you get your ADT security system.

What Vocal Controls Can You Use When You Pair Your Jefferson City Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Alexa and Google can do more things than just turning on the lights or arming your alarm system. You might want to see the status of your smart devices or calibrate any automation component to a preset level. You can also tell your smart speaker to auto-adjust your components just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these prompts for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You can also set a routine in the Google or Alexa app that links different devices together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving the house,” and trigger your smart locks, turn on your alarms, lower the thermostat, and turn off every light in the house. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and let your lights, thermostat, and other devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together for a custom routine are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Smart Devices From The Same Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Does connecting your Jefferson City security system to Alexa or Google Nest work best if you buy your alarms and cameras from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can use different components -- most use z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s more convenient to get all your devices connected at the time of install.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed together, you make a powerful, united security system from the outset. Then you can design away and devise routines and groups, with every device working at install. You could mix and match your smart components as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. Just make sure that any additional components are linked to your home security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google with the ADT voice prompts.
