Command Your Eugene Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can command your Eugene ADT security system with intuitive voice commands? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your Eugene ADT security system was voice activated? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Eugene home security system you can create an amazing upgrade.

Your voice activated assistants like Google or Alexa can access your wireless system to turn on your smart lights, lock your smart locks, and send tripped alarm notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring team. Then as you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, all you have to say is “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras spring into protection mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re rushing to leave quickly and don’t want to mess with the smartphone app.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant respond to the voice controls for your home security system, you’ll need to activate the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your smart speaker to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With easy voice prompts, you can activate your alarms, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is opened.

You could use separate Google or Alexa skills to work with each separate camera, alarm, and automation component, but that can seem like a mess. One of the advantages of linking your Eugene security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is found in a singular place. Luckily, you can outfit your home with alarms, automation, and security cameras at the same time when you purchase your ADT security system.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Use When You Link Your Eugene Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning on your smart lights or setting your alarm system. You can also see the status of your sensors or adjust a component to a custom setting. You may also command your smart speaker to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom 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 within the Google or Alexa app that combines multiple alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Hey, Google, I’m leaving,” and trigger your smart door locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the thermostat, and flip off your living room lights. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and watch as Alexa dims the lights and adjusts the thermostat. The devices you can combine together in a custom routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Items From The Same Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Does linking your Eugene security system to Alexa or Google Nest work best if you order your alarms and cameras from the same place, or can you pick over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- many devices use z-wave tech -- you may find that it’s easier to have all your devices linked at the same time.

When you get your devices installed together, you create a cohesive security system from the beginning. Then you can program away and make routines and groups, and not have to set up a skill differently later. You could add different security devices as you go, but then you will have to troubleshoot to get them to work in sync. Just make sure that any added devices are paired to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT voice prompts.
