Control Your Fayetteville Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your wireless system to control your interior lighting, lock your door locks, and send tripped alarm notifications to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re ready for bed or to get out of the house, all you need to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into protection mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re hurrying to lock up quickly and can’t find the key pad.

Here’s how using your Fayetteville security system with Google Nest or Amazon’s Alexa works:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To enable voice commands on your security system, you’ll need to activate the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can tell your devices to perform many of the tasks that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice commands, 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.

Conversely, you can use separate Alexa or Google skills to control each separate security and automation item, but that can grow to overkill. One of the advantages of pairing your Fayetteville security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that everything is conveniently found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can customize your home 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 Link Your Fayetteville Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning on the lights or disarming your motion sensors. You can also see the status of your camera or adjust your thermostat to a custom level. You may also ask your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Here are just a few prompts for your Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You may also create a routine within Alexa or Google that links multiple alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and trigger your smart door locks, arm your window and door sensors, turn down the air, and flip off your smart lights. Or set a routine for “tv time,” and sit back as your AI assistant lowers the lights and resets the air. The devices you can pair together for a personalized routine are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Smart Components From One Place Or Mix And Match?

Does connecting your Fayetteville security system to Alexa or Google Nest work best if you buy your devices from the initial install, or can you mix and match? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s more convenient to get all your security components configured at the time of install.

By having your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed at one time, you make a united system from the start. Then you can program away and devise groups and routines, and not have to set up a skill differently later. You could mix and match your smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you may have to troubleshoot to get them to work in sync. Simply ensure that any extra alarms, cameras, or smart items are entered to your ADT system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google using the ADT phrases.
