Command Your Worcester Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can access your Worcester security system with your voice? Wouldn’t it be amazing if your Worcester home security system was even easier to control? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Worcester security system you can create an amazing boost.

Your smart speaker assistants like Alexa or Google can link to your security and automation system to control your lights, set your door locks, and send system alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re ready for bed or to run some errands, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into protection mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re hurrying to leave quickly and don’t want to fiddle with the phone app.

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

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To enable voice control on your home security system, you’ll need to enable the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can instruct your devices to perform many of the commands that you can manage in your mobile security app. With intuitive voice commands, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, control your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is opened.

You could use different Google or Alexa skills to control each alarm, sensor, and automation component, but that can seem like a mess. One of the advantages of pairing your Worcester security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that all your voice commands are easily found in a singular place. Luckily, you can personalize your house with all sorts of security and automation components that will work off each other with voice commands.

What Voice Instructions Can You Use When You Pair Your Worcester Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning off your smart bulbs or arming your alarms. You can check the status of your camera or change a component to a preset scene. You may also command your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You can also set a routine within the Google or Alexa app that combines many alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For example, say “Google, I’m leaving,” and lock your smart door locks, flip on your alarms, turn down the thermostat, and extinguish your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and sit back as Google turns down the smart bulbs and resets the air. The components you can link together for a preset routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Automated Components From One Place Or Mix And Match?

Does pairing your Worcester security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you buy your devices from the initial install, or can you pick over time? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave technology -- many times it’s easier to have all your devices connected at the time of install.

By having your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed together, you make a cohesive system from the beginning. Then you can pre-set away and make groups, routines, and custom commands, with every device working from the outset. You could mix and match your smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you may have hope that they work in sync. However, make sure that any extra devices are linked to your home security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google using the ADT voice prompts.
