Control Your Tallahassee Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can command your Tallahassee home security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be great if your Tallahassee security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Tallahassee security system you can create an amazing boost.

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to turn on your smart lights, activate your locks, and push tripped alarm alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring team. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to get out of the house, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into protection mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re hurrying to lock up quickly and have your hands full.

Here’s how using your Tallahassee security system with Google Nest or Amazon’s Alexa works:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice control turned on for your security and automation system, you’ll have to turn on the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can tell your devices to perform a majority of of the commands that you can do in your mobile security app. With easy voice commands, you can arm or disarm your system, raise or lower your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is opened.

Conversely, you can use different Google or Alexa skills to work with each separate camera, alarm, and automation component, but that can grow to overkill. One of the advantages of linking your Tallahassee 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 home with alarms, automation, and security cameras all together when you buy your security system.

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

Alexa and Google can do more than just turning on your smart lights or setting your motion sensors. You can find out the status of your smart devices or calibrate your thermostat to a predetermined setting. You can also command your AI assistant to schedule your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

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

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also preset a routine in Alexa or Google that puts many components together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and trigger your smart door locks, turn on your alarms, lower the smart thermostat, and flip off your smart lights. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and let your thermostat, lights, and other devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can combine together to make a preset routine are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

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

Is linking your Tallahassee security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you buy your devices from one place, or can you build over time? While you can mix and match -- as long as your device uses z-wave technology -- sometimes it’s more convenient to have all your smart home devices connected at the time of install.

When you have your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you create a unified security system from the start. Then you can program away and devise groups, routines, and custom commands, and know everything will work as it should on day one. You could mix and match your security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. Simply ensure that any extra devices are paired to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond using the ADT skill.
