Command Your Springfield Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can control your Springfield home security system with your voice? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your Springfield ADT security system was voice activated? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Springfield ADT security system you can create an intuitive upgrade.

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your security and automation system to control your smart lights, lock your door locks, and send tripped alarm notifications to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to leave the house, all you have to say is “Goodbye,” and your system will activate into protection mode. That’s a nice convenience when you’re hurrying to lock up quickly and don’t want to fiddle with the smartphone app.

Here’s how to use your Springfield security system with Google Nest or Alexa:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice commands enabled on your security and automation system, you’ll have to enable the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can tell your devices to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, adjust your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use separate Google or Alexa skills to control each camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the benefits of linking your Springfield security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that all your voice commands are conveniently found in the same place. Luckily, you can outfit your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras and pair them with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa on install.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Use When You Pair Your Springfield Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just turning off the lights or arming your alarm system. You might want to see the status of your camera or adjust any automation component to a preset level. You might also ask your smart speaker to auto-adjust your components just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these prompts for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also set a routine within the Alexa or Google app that links multiple devices together. For instance, say “Hey, Google, I’m going out,” and activate your smart door locks, arm your motion sensors, turn down the smart thermostat, and turn off every light in the house. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and use the phrase to dim the lights and put the temperature to just the right level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can pair together for a custom scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Components From A Single Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Does linking your Springfield security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you get your components from one place, or can you mix and match? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave technology -- many times it’s easier to get all your smart home devices linked at the initial install.

When you have your devices installed at one time, you instantly create a united system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and make routines and groups, 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. However, make sure that any added components are linked to your security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google with the ADT voice prompts.
