Command Your Tulsa Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can control your Tulsa home security system with your voice? Wouldn’t it be great if your Tulsa ADT security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Tulsa ADT security system you can create an exciting boost.

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can access your security and automation system to control your interior lighting, lock your locks, and send tripped alarm notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then as you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and your system will activate into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re trying to get out of the house quickly and can’t find the key pad.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To turn on voice prompts on your security and automation system, you’ll have to enable the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform a majority of of the commands that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With intuitive voice commands, you can disarm or arm your system, raise or lower your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is up.

You could use different Google or Alexa skills to work with each separate camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can grow to overkill. One of the benefits of linking your Tulsa security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is found in a singular place. Luckily, you can outfit your home with alarms, automation, and security cameras all together when you get your security system.

What Vocal Controls Can You Issue When You Pair Your Tulsa Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning on the lights or setting your alarm system. You can see the status of your smart devices or calibrate any automation component to a predetermined level. You may also ask your smart speaker to plan a timetable for your devices just like you could in your mobile security app.

Here are just a few phrases for your Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You may also create a routine in Alexa or Google that combines multiple components together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving the house,” and trigger your smart door locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the thermostat, and extinguish every light in the house. Or set a routine for “bedtime,” and let your lights, thermostat, and other devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The components you can link together to make a custom scene are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Components From A Single Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Is connecting your Tulsa security system to Alexa or Google Nest simpler if you buy your components from the initial install, or can you mix and match? While you can mix and match -- many devices use z-wave wireless connections -- many times it’s simpler to get all your smart home devices linked at the initial install.

When you get your security, safety, and automation devices installed together, you instantly create a unified home security system from the outset. Then you can design away and devise routines and groups, and know each command will perform perfectly on day one. You could get different smart components as you go, but then you will have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. Simply ensure that any extra devices are entered to your ADT system first, and then have your AI assistant respond using the ADT skill.
