Control Your Jonesboro Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can access your wireless system to turn on your smart lights, lock your smart locks, and push system notifications to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into protection mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re rushing to leave quickly and have your hands full.

Here’s how using your Jonesboro security system with Alexa or Google works:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant respond to the voice prompts for your security and automation system, you’ll want to activate the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your smart speaker to perform a majority of of the tasks that you can manage in your mobile security app. With intuitive voice prompts, you can activate your alarms, adjust your smart lights and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

Then again, you could use other Google or Alexa skills to control each security and automation device, but that can seem like a mess. One of the benefits of pairing your Jonesboro security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that everything is conveniently found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras all together when you get your home security system.

What Voice Commands Can You Use When You Pair Your Jonesboro Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Alexa and Google can do more than just flipping on your smart lights or disarming your motion sensors. You can find out the status of your smart devices or change any automation component to a preset scene. You might also tell your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your devices just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these commands for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You might also set a routine within Alexa or Google that links many components together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving the house,” and lock your smart locks, arm your motion sensors, turn down the air, and flip off every light in the house. Or set up a routine for “movie night,” and let your thermostat, lights, and other devices automatically adjust. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can pair together to make a preset scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Devices From A Single Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Does linking your Jonesboro security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you get your components from the same place, or can you build over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- most use z-wave technology -- sometimes it’s easier to have all your devices linked at the same time.

When you have your security, safety, and automation devices installed together, you instantly create a cohesive system from the start. Then you can design away and create groups, routines, and custom commands, and know all your components will perform as it should immediately. You could mix and match your smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. Simply ensure that any additional devices are paired to your home security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google through the ADT skill.
