Control Your West Palm Beach Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can access your security and automation system to control your smart lights, activate your locks, and send system alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then if you’re preparing for bed or to run some errands, all you need to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras slip into protection mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re trying to lock up quickly and can’t mess with the mobile app.

Here’s how to link your West Palm Beach security system with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To turn on voice commands on your security and automation system, you’ll need to activate the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can tell your smart speaker to perform almost all of the things that you can manage in your mobile security app. With easy voice prompts, you can arm or disarm your alarms and sensors, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use different Alexa or Google skills to control each separate alarm, sensor, and automation item, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the perks of linking your West Palm Beach security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is easily found in the same place. Luckily, you can customize your house with all sorts of security and automation components that will work together with voice commands.

What Voice Instructions Can You Say When You Pair Your West Palm Beach Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just flipping on the lights or disarming your motion sensors. You can check the status of your sensors or change your thermostat to a preset setting. You may also tell your smart speaker to auto-adjust your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these commands for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You may also create a routine within the Alexa or Google app that combines many alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For example, say “Hey, Google, I’m leaving,” and activate your smart door locks, flip on your window and door sensors, lower the thermostat, and extinguish every light in the house. Or set up a routine for “tv time,” and use the command to lower the lights and put the A/C to just the right level. The devices you can combine together for a custom routine are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Smart Items From The Same Place Or Mix And Match?

Is connecting your West Palm Beach security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you order your components from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave tech -- many times it’s simpler to have all your devices configured at the initial install.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed at one time, you make a cohesive security system from the outset. Then you can program away and create groups and routines, and not have to set up a skill differently later. You could add different security devices as you go, but then you may have to troubleshoot to get them to work in sync. Just make sure that any extra components are entered to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond through the ADT voice prompts.
