Control Your Tucson Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your state-of-the-art system to command your interior lighting, lock your locks, and push tripped alarm alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to run some errands, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras spring into protection mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re rushing to lock up quickly and can’t make it to the your Command pad.

How can you link Google Nest or Alexa with your Tucson security system:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant respond to the voice commands for your security and automation system, you’ll need to enable the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform a majority of of the tasks that you can manage in your mobile security app. With natural voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your alarms, adjust your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is up.

Then again, you could use other Alexa or Google skills to work with each separate alarm, sensor, and automation device, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of linking your Tucson security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that every voice command for every component is found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can personalize your house with all sorts of security and automation components that will work all together with one voice command.

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

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning on your smart lights or arming your alarm system. You might want to find out the status of your camera or change your thermostat to a predetermined setting. You can also command your smart speaker to auto-adjust your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You might also preset a routine in the Alexa or Google app that combines different alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Google, I’m leaving the house,” and trigger your smart locks, arm your alarms, lower the thermostat, and extinguish your smart lights. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and sit back as your AI assistant turns down the smart bulbs and resets the thermostat. The devices you can pair together to make a custom scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Items From A Single Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Is pairing your Tucson security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa simpler if you buy your alarms and cameras from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can mix and match -- many devices use z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s easier to have all your smart home devices connected at the time of install.

When you have your devices installed together, you create a powerful, unified home security system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and make groups and routines, with every device working at install. You could mix and match your security components as you go, but then you may have hope that they work in sync. Just make sure that any additional alarms, cameras, or smart items are paired to your home security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google with the ADT skill.
