Command Your Hagerstown Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can access your Hagerstown home security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your Hagerstown ADT security system was voice activated? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Hagerstown security system you can create an amazing boost.

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can access your state-of-the-art system to command your lights, set your smart locks, and send system alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring team. Then as you’re heading for bed or to run some errands, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into protection mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re hurrying to leave quickly and can’t pull up the mobile app.

Here’s how to pair your Hagerstown security system with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To turn on voice control on your security and automation system, you’ll need to enable the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your smart speaker to perform a majority of of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With easy voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check to see if you left the garage door open.

You could use different Alexa or Google skills to control each separate camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can grow to overkill. One of the perks of pairing your Hagerstown security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that all your voice commands are easily found in a singular place. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras that will work all together with one voice command.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Issue When You Link Your Hagerstown Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just flipping on the lights or arming your alarms. You might want to find out the status of your smart devices or calibrate any automation component to a predetermined setting. You may also command your AI assistant to schedule your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Try out these phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You might also preset a routine in the Google or Alexa app that combines different components together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m going out,” and lock your smart locks, flip on your window and door sensors, turn down the smart thermostat, and extinguish every light in the house. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and sit back as your AI assistant lowers the lights and turns up the air. The devices you can pair together to make a personalized routine are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Automated Devices From One Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Is linking your Hagerstown security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa easier if you buy your alarms and cameras from the initial install, or can you mix and match? While you can get non-ADT components -- as long as your device uses z-wave technology -- many times it’s easier to have all your security components linked at the same time.

When you get your devices installed at one time, you create one united system from the outset. Then you can design away and make groups, routines, and custom commands, and not have to reconfigure later. You could mix and match your security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have hope that they work together. Simply ensure that any additional components are entered to your ADT system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google through the ADT phrases.
