Control Your Lubbock Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your AI assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to control your smart lights, lock your locks, and push system alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then if you’re heading for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into protection mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re rushing to get out of the house quickly and can’t make it to the your Command pad.

Here’s how using your Lubbock security system with Alexa or Google works:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice commands for your security and automation system, you’ll want to activate the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your devices to perform a majority of of the tasks that you can do in your ADT Control app. With intuitive voice prompts, you can arm or disarm your alarms and sensors, adjust your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

Then again, you could use different Alexa or Google skills to control each separate alarm, sensor, and automation device, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of pairing your Lubbock security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that every voice command for every component is conveniently found in one skill. Luckily, you can outfit your home with all sorts of security and automation components and pair them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

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

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning on the lights or arming your alarms. You might want to see the status of your camera or adjust a component to a predetermined level. You can also command Alexa or Google to auto-adjust your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these prompts for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You may also create a routine within Google or Alexa that puts multiple devices together. For example, say “Hey, Google, I’m going out,” and activate your smart locks, flip on your motion sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and turn off your living room lights. Or set a routine for “tv time,” and relax as Google turns down the lights and turns up the temperature. The components you can combine together to make a custom routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Items From A Single Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Is linking your Lubbock security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa easier if you get your alarms and cameras from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- many devices use z-wave tech -- many times it’s simpler to have all your smart home devices linked at the same time.

When you have your devices installed together, you make one unified home security system from the beginning. Then you can program away and devise routines and groups, with all your devices working from the outset. You could get different security devices as you go, but then you will have a greater chance they won’t work in sync. However, make sure that any additional alarms, cameras, or smart items are linked to your security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google with the ADT phrases.
