Control Your Phoenix Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to control your lights, lock your locks, and push system alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then as you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you need to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into guard mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re hurrying to get out of the house quickly and can’t fiddle with the mobile app.

How can you use Alexa or Google Nest with your Phoenix security system:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To get voice commands working with your security and automation system, you’ll have to activate the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your AI assistant to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your mobile security app. With natural voice controls, you can arm or disarm your alarms, raise or lower your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

Then again, you could use separate Alexa or Google skills to manage each alarm, sensor, and automation device, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the benefits of linking your Phoenix security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that all your voice commands are found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, cameras, and automation devices that will work together with intuitive voice commands.

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

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning off your smart lights or disarming your alarms. You can also see the status of your sensors or adjust your thermostat to a predetermined level. You might also tell your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT app.

Try out these commands for your Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You might also create a routine in Google or Alexa that combines many alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and activate your smart door locks, turn on your alarms, lower the smart thermostat, and flip off every light in the house. Or preset a routine for “bedtime,” and let your thermostat, lights, and other devices automatically adjust. The components you can link together in a custom routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Smart Items From A Single Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Is connecting your Phoenix security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you order your alarms and cameras from one place, or can you build over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- as long as your device uses z-wave wireless connections -- sometimes it’s more convenient to have all your devices configured at the time of install.

By having your security, safety, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you instantly create one united security system from the beginning. Then you can design away and make groups and routines, and know each command will perform as it should on day one. You could mix and match your smart components as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. However, make sure that any added components are linked to your ADT system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google with the ADT phrases.
