Command Your Bowling Green Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to turn on your interior lighting, set your locks, and send system notifications to your phone and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you need to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into protection mode. That’s a nice convenience when you’re rushing to get out of the house quickly and can’t find the your Command pad.

How can you link Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa with your Bowling Green security system:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice control turned on for your security and automation system, you’ll need to turn on the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform a majority of of the commands that you can do in your ADT Control app. With easy voice commands, you can disarm or arm your system, adjust your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is up.

You could use separate Google or Alexa skills to control each camera, alarm, and automation device, but that can grow to overkill. One of the advantages of linking your Bowling Green security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that all your voice commands are conveniently found in one skill. Luckily, you can outfit your home with all sorts of security and automation components that will work together with intuitive voice commands.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Say When You Pair Your Bowling Green Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more things than just turning off your smart lights or setting your alarms. You can also check the status of your smart devices or calibrate any automation component to a predetermined level. You might also ask your smart speaker to schedule your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Try out these prompts for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You might also create a routine within the Google or Alexa app that combines multiple devices together. For example, say “Google, I’m leaving,” and trigger your smart locks, arm your alarms, turn down the thermostat, and extinguish your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and use the command to dim the smart bulbs and put the A/C to a more comfortable level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together for a preset scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Components From One Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Does pairing your Bowling Green security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you get your alarms and cameras from the same place, or can you build over time? While you can use different components -- many devices use z-wave tech -- many times it’s simpler to have all your smart home devices linked at the initial install.

By having your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed at one time, you make a powerful, united security system from the beginning. Then you can design away and devise groups and routines, and not have to set up a skill differently later. You could mix and match your security devices as you go, but then you may have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. Simply ensure that any additional components are linked to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT voice prompts.
