Command Your Montgomery Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your AI assistants like Alexa or Google can access your state-of-the-art system to turn on your lights, lock your locks, and send system notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then if you’re heading for bed or to leave the house, all you need to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re trying to lock up quickly and can’t make it to the your Command pad.

Here’s how to pair your Montgomery security system with Alexa or Google Nest:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To switch on voice commands on your security and automation system, you’ll have to activate the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your devices to perform almost all of the commands that you can manage in your ADT Control app. With natural voice controls, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, control your smart lights 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 work with each separate security and automation device, but that can grow to overkill. One of the advantages of linking your Montgomery security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that every voice command for every component is found in the same place. Luckily, you can outfit your house with alarms, cameras, and automation devices and pair them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

What Voice Controls Can You Use When You Connect Your Montgomery Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Alexa and Google can do more things than just turning on your smart bulbs or setting your alarm system. You can find out the status of your smart devices or calibrate your thermostat to a preset setting. You might also command your smart speaker to schedule your components just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Try out these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also create a routine within Google or Alexa that puts different devices together. For instance, say “Hey, Google, I’m leaving,” and trigger your smart locks, turn on your motion sensors, turn down the air, and extinguish your smart lights. Or preset a routine for “bedtime,” and let your all you devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together in a preset routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

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

Does linking your Montgomery security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you buy your alarms and cameras from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can mix and match -- most use z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s easier to get all your smart home devices connected at the time of install.

When you get your devices installed at one time, you instantly create a unified system from the start. Then you can design away and make routines and groups, and know everything will perform perfectly from the outset. You could mix and match your security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. However, make sure that any extra components are entered to your security system first, and then use voice commands with the ADT voice prompts.
