Using Your Denver Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Alexa or Google can access your state-of-the-art system to control your interior lighting, lock your locks, and push tripped alarm alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring team. Then if you’re preparing for bed or to leave the house, all you need to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into protection mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re rushing to lock up quickly and can’t make it to the control pad.

Here’s how to pair your Denver security system with Alexa or Google Nest:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice control enabled on your security system, you’ll need to turn on the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can instruct your devices to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your mobile security app. With easy voice commands, you can activate your system, adjust your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is up.

Then again, you could use separate Google or Alexa skills to work with each separate security and automation component, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of linking your Denver security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is found in one skill. Luckily, you can customize your house with all sorts of security and automation components and pair them with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa on install.

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

Your AI assistant can do more things than just flipping on the lights or disarming your alarms. You might want to see the status of your sensors or adjust your thermostat to a custom scene. You might also ask your smart speaker to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

Try out these phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You may also set a routine within Alexa or Google that combines many components together. For example, say “Google, I’m leaving the house,” and trigger your smart door locks, arm your alarms, lower the air, and extinguish your living room lights. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and use the command to lower the smart bulbs and set the thermostat to the perfect level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together for a custom routine are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Smart Components From The Same Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Does pairing your Denver security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you buy your devices from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can mix and match -- many devices use z-wave technology -- many times it’s easier to have all your security components linked at the time of install.

When you have your devices installed together, you make one united security system from the start. Then you can pre-set away and make routines and groups, and know each command will perform seamlessly from the outset. You could add different smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you may have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. Just make sure that any extra components are paired to your security system first, and then use voice commands with the ADT phrases.
