Using Your West Bloomfield Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can access your state-of-the-art system to control your lights, set your smart locks, and send system alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring team. Then as you’re preparing for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and your system will spring into guard mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re hurrying to get out of the house quickly and can’t find the control pad.

Here’s how using your West Bloomfield security system with Alexa or Google works:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To get voice control working with your security system, you’ll have to turn on the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your devices to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your mobile security app. With intuitive voice controls, you can arm or disarm your alarms and sensors, raise or lower your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check to see if you left the garage door open.

Then again, you could use different skills to control each separate camera, alarm, and automation device, but that can grow to overkill. One of the benefits of linking your West Bloomfield security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is conveniently found in a singular place. Luckily, you can outfit your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras that will work off each other with one voice command.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Use When You Connect Your West Bloomfield Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just turning off the lights or arming your alarm system. You can check the status of your smart devices or adjust your thermostat to a predetermined setting. You might also ask Alexa or Google to auto-adjust your components just like you could in the ADT app.

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

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You may also set a routine in the Google or Alexa app that puts different alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m going out,” and lock your smart locks, flip on your motion sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and flip off your smart lights. Or preset a routine for “tv time,” and use the command to lower the smart bulbs and set the A/C to the perfect level. The components you can combine together to make a preset routine are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Automated Items From One Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Does connecting your West Bloomfield security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you buy your alarms and cameras from the initial install, or can you build over time? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s more convenient to get all your devices configured at the initial install.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed at one time, you make a united home security system from the outset. Then you can design away and devise groups, routines, and custom commands, and know all your components will perform as it should immediately. You could mix and match your smart devices as you go, but then you may have hope that they work in sync. Just make sure that any added components are entered to your ADT system first, and then use voice commands with the ADT phrases.
