Control Your South Fulton Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can control your South Fulton home security system with intuitive voice commands? Wouldn’t it be great if your South Fulton security system was voice activated? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your South Fulton home security system you can create an intuitive improvement.

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your wireless system to turn on your interior lighting, set your door locks, and push tripped alarm notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring team. Then if you’re preparing for bed or to get out of the house, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras slip into guard mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re trying to leave quickly and have your arms full.

Here’s how to pair your South Fulton security system with Google Nest or Alexa:

Turn 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 skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your AI assistant to perform many of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice commands, you can activate your alarms and sensors, adjust your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use separate Alexa or Google skills to control each camera, alarm, and automation component, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the benefits of pairing your South Fulton security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that all your voice commands are easily found in the same skill. Luckily, you can customize your home with alarms, automation, and security cameras at the same time when you buy your ADT security system.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Use When You Pair Your South Fulton Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Alexa and Google can do more things than just flipping on your smart bulbs or setting your alarms. You can also see the status of your camera or calibrate any automation component to a preset scene. You can also tell your smart speaker to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

Try out these phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You may also create a routine within the Google or Alexa app that combines multiple alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Hey, Google, I’m leaving the house,” and activate your smart door locks, turn on your motion sensors, turn down the smart thermostat, and flip off every light in the house. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and let your lights, thermostat, and other devices automatically adjust. The devices you can combine together for a personalized scene are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Devices From One Place Or Mix And Match?

Does pairing your South Fulton security system to Alexa or Google Nest work best if you order your devices from the same place, or can you build over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- as long as your device uses z-wave wireless connections -- many times it’s more convenient to have all your smart home devices configured at the same time.

When you have your devices activated at the initial install, you instantly create a cohesive system from the outset. Then you can design away and create groups and routines, and know all your components will perform as it should from the outset. You could mix and match your security components as you go, but then you will have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. However, make sure that any additional devices are linked to your home security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google through the ADT voice prompts.
