Using Your Green Bay Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your security and automation system to turn on your lights, activate your smart locks, and push system notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then as you’re heading for bed or to run some errands, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras spring into guard mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re trying to leave quickly and can’t make it to the key pad.

How can you link Google Nest or Alexa with your Green Bay security system:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant listen for the voice controls for your security and automation system, you’ll have to turn on the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can ask your AI assistant to perform many of the things that you can manage in your ADT Control app. With natural voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, raise or lower your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use separate Alexa or Google skills to manage each separate alarm, sensor, and automation component, but that can seem like a mess. One of the perks of linking your Green Bay security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that all your voice commands are easily found in the same place. Luckily, you can personalize your home with alarms, automation, and security cameras that will work together with intuitive voice commands.

What Voice Instructions Can You Issue When You Link Your Green Bay Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning off the lights or setting your alarm system. You can also check the status of your sensors or calibrate your thermostat to a custom scene. You might also command Alexa or Google to auto-adjust your components just like you could in the ADT app.

Try out these prompts for your Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You may also set a routine in Alexa or Google that puts different devices together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart door locks, arm your motion sensors, turn down the air, and turn off every light in the house. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and use the phrase to lower the lighting and set the A/C to the perfect level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can combine together in a preset routine are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Smart Devices From One Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Does pairing your Green Bay security system to Alexa or Google Nest work best if you order your alarms and cameras from the same place, or can you pick over time? While you can use different components -- many devices use z-wave wireless connections -- many times it’s simpler to get all your security components linked at the same time.

When you have your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you make a cohesive system from the beginning. Then you can program away and devise groups, routines, and custom commands, with everything working at install. You could add different security devices as you go, but then you may have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. Simply ensure that any extra alarms, cameras, or smart items are entered to your security system first, and then use voice commands through the ADT voice prompts.
