Using Your Greenville Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can access your wireless system to command your lights, lock your door locks, and send system notifications to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re heading for bed or to leave the house, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into protection mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re trying to leave quickly and have your arms full.

Here’s how to use your Greenville security system with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To switch on voice commands on your security system, you’ll want to enable the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform a majority of of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With easy voice commands, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, raise or lower your smart lights and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is up.

Then again, you could use other skills to manage each camera, alarm, and automation device, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the perks of linking your Greenville security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that everything is found in one place. Luckily, you can personalize your house with all sorts of security and automation components that will work all together with voice commands.

What Vocal Commands Can You Issue When You Link Your Greenville Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning off your smart lights or disarming your motion sensors. You might want to find out the status of your smart devices or adjust a component 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 prompts for your Google Nest or 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.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also preset a routine within the Alexa or Google app that combines different alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Hey, Google, I’m leaving the house,” and trigger your smart locks, arm your motion sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and turn off every light in the house. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and let your all you devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The components you can pair together to make a preset routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Smart Components From A Single Place Or Mix And Match?

Is linking your Greenville security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa simpler if you order your devices from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can mix and match -- as long as your device uses z-wave wireless connections -- many times it’s easier to have all your security components connected at the initial install.

When you get your security, safety, and automation devices installed together, you make one united system from the outset. Then you can program away and devise groups and routines, and know each command will perform seamlessly on day one. You could add different security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. Just make sure that any added devices are linked to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT voice prompts.
