Control Your Little Rock Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can access your Little Rock security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be amazing if your Little Rock home security system was voice activated? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Little Rock security system you can create an exciting improvement.

Your smart speaker assistants like Alexa or Google can access your wireless system to command your lights, lock your door locks, and push tripped alarm notifications to your mobile device and ADT monitoring team. Then as you’re preparing for bed or to run some errands, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and your system will slip into guard mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re rushing to leave quickly and have your hands full.

How can you pair Google Nest or Alexa with your Little Rock security system:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To enable voice prompts on your security system, you’ll need to turn on the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your AI assistant to perform many of the commands that you can manage in your mobile security app. With intuitive voice prompts, you can activate your alarms and sensors, raise or lower your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is up.

You could use different skills to work with each separate alarm, sensor, and automation item, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of linking your Little Rock security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that all your voice commands are found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can outfit your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras as a package when you purchase your home security system.

What Vocal Commands Can You Say When You Connect Your Little Rock Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning off your smart lights or setting your alarm system. You can also check the status of your camera or adjust your thermostat to a preset setting. You might also ask your smart speaker to plan a timetable for your components just like you could in the ADT app.

Here are just a few phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You may also create a routine within Google or Alexa that combines multiple components together. For instance, say “Google, I’m leaving,” and activate your smart locks, turn on your window and door sensors, turn down the thermostat, and extinguish your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and let your thermostat, lights, and other devices automatically adjust. The devices you can pair together to make a personalized routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Devices From The Same Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Is connecting your Little Rock security system to Alexa or Google Nest simpler if you order your devices from one place, or can you build over time? While you can mix and match -- most use z-wave tech -- many times it’s simpler to have all your security components configured at the time of install.

By having your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you make one cohesive security system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and devise groups and routines, and not have to set up a skill differently later. You could add different smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you may have hope that they work in sync. Just make sure that any additional alarms, cameras, or smart items are paired to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT voice prompts.
