Using Your Manchester Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Alexa or Google can link to your wireless system to command your lights, set your locks, and send system alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring team. Then when you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into protection mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re hurrying to leave quickly and can’t find the your Command pad.

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

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To enable voice control on your security and automation system, you’ll want to activate the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can tell your smart speaker to perform many of the tasks that you can do in your mobile security app. With easy voice controls, you can arm or disarm your system, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is opened.

Conversely, you can use separate Alexa or Google skills to control each security and automation component, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the perks of pairing your Manchester security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that everything is conveniently found in a singular place. Luckily, you can customize your house with all sorts of security and automation components as a package when you get your security system.

What Voice Instructions Can You Use When You Link Your Manchester Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more things than just turning off your smart bulbs or disarming your alarms. You might want to check the status of your smart devices or change a component to a preset level. You can also tell Alexa or Google to auto-adjust your devices just like you could in the ADT app.

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

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also preset a routine in the Google or Alexa app that puts many alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Google, I’m leaving the house,” and trigger your smart door locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the air, and flip off your living room lights. Or set up a routine for “movie night,” and let your all you devices automatically adjust. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together to make a preset routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Items From The Same Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Is linking your Manchester security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa easier if you buy your alarms and cameras from the initial install, 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 simpler to get all your devices linked at the time of install.

When you have your devices installed together, you instantly create a united system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and make groups and routines, with all your devices working at install. You could add different smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you will have a greater chance they won’t work in sync. Just make sure that any extra components are paired to your ADT system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google through the ADT phrases.
