Control Your Elizabethtown Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can command your Elizabethtown ADT security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be great if your Elizabethtown home security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Elizabethtown security system you can create an exciting upgrade.

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can link to your security and automation system to control your interior lighting, set your locks, and push system notifications to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then as you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, all you need to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re rushing to leave quickly and don’t want to fiddle with the mobile app.

How can you pair Alexa or Google Nest with your Elizabethtown security system:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To switch on voice commands on your home security system, you’ll want to activate the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your AI assistant to perform many of the tasks that you can do in your ADT Control app. With natural voice controls, you can disarm or arm your system, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check if you left the garage door open.

You could use other skills to control each separate camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can seem like a mess. One of the advantages of linking your Elizabethtown security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is easily found in the same skill. Luckily, you can outfit your home with all sorts of security and automation components and connect them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

What Vocal Controls Can You Use When You Connect Your Elizabethtown Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Alexa and Google can do more things than just turning on the lights or setting your alarm system. You might want to check the status of your sensors or adjust your thermostat to a predetermined level. You may also ask Alexa or Google to auto-adjust your devices just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

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

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You can also preset a routine within the Google or Alexa app that combines multiple devices together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and lock your smart door locks, turn on your window and door sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and extinguish your living room lights. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and use the command to dim the lighting and set the A/C to a more comfortable level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can pair together for a personalized scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Components From The Same Place Or Mix And Match?

Is connecting your Elizabethtown security system to Google Nest or Alexa easier if you get your alarms and cameras from the same place, or can you build over time? While you can use different components -- most use z-wave tech -- many times it’s easier to get all your devices linked at the same time.

When you get your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you create one united system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and devise routines and groups, and know each command will work seamlessly on day one. You could add different security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you will have a greater chance they won’t work together. Just make sure that any extra devices are entered to your ADT system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google using the ADT voice prompts.
