Control Your Albuquerque Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your AI assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your wireless system to command your interior lighting, set your smart locks, and send system alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then if you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re rushing to get out of the house quickly and have your arms full.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice commands for your security and automation system, you’ll need to enable the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice prompts, you can arm or disarm your system, control your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check if you left the garage door open.

Conversely, you can use separate Alexa or Google skills to work with each separate alarm, sensor, and automation item, but that can seem like a mess. One of the perks of linking your Albuquerque security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that everything is found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, cameras, and automation devices all together when you purchase your home security system.

What Voice Controls Can You Use When You Link Your Albuquerque Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just flipping on your smart lights or disarming your alarm system. You can check the status of your camera or calibrate your thermostat to a preset setting. You may also tell your AI assistant 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 front door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You might also set a routine in Alexa or Google that links many devices together. For example, say “Hey, Google, I’m leaving the house,” and activate your smart door locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and turn off your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “tv time,” and use the phrase to turn down the lights and put the A/C to a more comfortable level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together to make a preset routine are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Smart Items From A Single Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Does connecting your Albuquerque security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you get your alarms and cameras from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave wireless connections -- sometimes it’s simpler to have all your security components configured at the time of install.

When you have your security, safety, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you create a united security system from the start. Then you can program away and devise groups, routines, and custom commands, with everything working from the outset. You could mix and match your smart components as you go, but then you may have hope that they work in sync. However, make sure that any additional components are entered to your ADT system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google using the ADT voice prompts.
