Command Your Pensacola Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can command your Pensacola ADT security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be great if your Pensacola ADT security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Pensacola security system you can create an intuitive boost.

Your smart speaker assistants like Alexa or Google can link to your state-of-the-art system to command your lights, set your locks, and send system alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to get out of the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and your system will spring into guard mode. That’s a nice convenience when you’re hurrying to leave quickly and can’t find the your Command pad.

How can you use Google Nest or Alexa with your Pensacola security system:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice commands for your security and automation system, you’ll want to activate the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can tell your devices to perform a majority of of the tasks that you can manage in your ADT Control app. With intuitive voice commands, you can arm or disarm your alarms, adjust your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is up.

You could use separate skills to work with each separate alarm, sensor, and automation device, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of linking your Pensacola security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that everything is easily found in one place. Luckily, you can customize your home with all sorts of security and automation components and link them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

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

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning off your smart lights or setting your motion sensors. You can check the status of your camera or adjust any automation component to a custom level. You might also tell your smart speaker to auto-adjust your components just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also create a routine in the Alexa or Google app that combines different devices together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart locks, arm your window and door sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and extinguish your living room lights. Or set up a routine for “movie night,” and use the command to dim the lights and put the A/C to the perfect level. The devices you can link together to make a custom scene are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Items From The Same Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Does connecting your Pensacola security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you get your devices from the initial install, or can you mix and match? While you can get non-ADT components -- most use z-wave tech -- many times it’s more convenient to get all your security components linked at the initial install.

When you have your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you instantly create one united home security system from the start. Then you can pre-set away and make groups, routines, and custom commands, and not have to set up a skill differently later. You could get different security components as you go, but then you will have hope that they work together. Just make sure that any added components are paired to your home security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT phrases.
