Command Your Huntsville Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your AI assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to command your interior lighting, set your smart locks, and send system alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring experts. Then as you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you have to say is “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into guard mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re hurrying to get out of the house quickly and have your arms full.

Here’s how to use your Huntsville security system with Alexa or Google Nest:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice controls for your security system, you’ll need to enable the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform almost all of the tasks that you can manage in your mobile security app. With easy voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your alarms, control your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is up.

Then again, you could use different Google or Alexa skills to work with each security and automation device, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the benefits of linking your Huntsville security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that everything is conveniently found in the same place. Luckily, you can customize your home with alarms, cameras, and automation devices and connect them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

What Voice Controls Can You Issue When You Connect Your Huntsville Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more than just flipping on your smart lights or disarming your motion sensors. You can check the status of your camera or adjust your thermostat to a custom level. You may also tell your AI assistant to schedule your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the front 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 can also set a routine in the Alexa or Google app that links many devices together. For example, say “Hey, Google, I’m leaving,” and activate your smart door locks, arm your motion sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and extinguish your smart lights. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and use the prompt to dim the lights and adjust the thermostat to the perfect level. The components you can pair together to make a personalized scene are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Automated Devices From One Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Does pairing your Huntsville security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you order your devices from the same place, or can you mix and match? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave technology -- you may find that it’s more convenient to get all your security components linked at the initial install.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed at one time, you make one cohesive security system from the start. Then you can pre-set away and make groups, routines, and custom commands, with everything working from the outset. You could mix and match your security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you may have hope that they work in sync. Just make sure that any additional alarms, cameras, or smart items are paired to your security system first, and then use voice commands with the ADT skill.
