Control Your Chattanooga Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can command your Chattanooga ADT security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your Chattanooga home security system was even easier to control? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Chattanooga ADT security system you can create an exciting improvement.

Your AI assistants like Alexa or Google can access your security and automation system to command your interior lighting, activate your locks, and push tripped alarm alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re heading for bed or to run some errands, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into protection mode. That’s a nice time saver when you’re hurrying to leave quickly and can’t make it to the your Command pad.

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

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice commands working with your home security system, you’ll have to activate the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can instruct your AI assistant to perform a majority of of the commands that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With intuitive voice controls, you can activate your system, control your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check to see if you left the garage door open.

Then again, you could use other Alexa or Google skills to manage each separate camera, alarm, and automation component, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of linking your Chattanooga security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that every voice command for every component is easily found in one skill. Luckily, you can outfit your home with alarms, cameras, and automation devices and connect them with Google Nest or Alexa on install.

What Vocal Commands Can You Issue When You Connect Your Chattanooga Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Alexa and Google can do more things than just flipping on your smart bulbs or setting your alarm system. You might want to check the status of your smart devices or change your thermostat to a predetermined scene. You can also command your smart speaker to schedule your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Say these prompts for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You may also preset a routine in Alexa or Google that combines different devices together. For example, say “Hey, Google, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart door locks, arm your alarms, turn down the air, and extinguish every light in the house. Or preset a routine for “tv time,” and use the prompt to dim the lighting and set the thermostat to just the right level. The devices you can link together to make a personalized routine are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

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

Is linking your Chattanooga security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you order your components from the initial install, or can you build over time? While you can mix and match -- as long as your device uses z-wave technology -- sometimes it’s simpler to have all your devices linked at the same time.

When you get your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you create one united system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and create groups and routines, and know all your components will work perfectly immediately. You could add different smart devices as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. Simply ensure that any added devices are entered to your home security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT skill.
