Command Your Boulder Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can link to your security and automation system to turn on your smart lights, set your smart locks, and send system alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring team. Then if you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into protection mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re trying to get out of the house quickly and can’t fiddle with the phone app.

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

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To enable voice control on your security and automation system, you’ll want to activate the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can tell your devices to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your mobile security app. With easy voice commands, you can arm or disarm your alarms, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check if you left the garage door open.

Conversely, you can use separate Google or Alexa skills to work with each alarm, sensor, and automation item, but that can seem like a mess. One of the benefits of pairing your Boulder security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that all your voice commands are found in one place. Luckily, you can personalize your house with all sorts of security and automation components and pair them with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa on install.

What Vocal Controls Can You Issue When You Link Your Boulder 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 alarms. You might want to find out the status of your sensors or calibrate any automation component to a preset scene. You can also command your AI assistant to auto-adjust your devices just like you could in your mobile security app.

Here are just a few 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 garage door camera.”

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You can also create a routine within the Google or Alexa app that links multiple alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For example, say “Google, I’m leaving the house,” and lock your smart locks, turn on your window and door sensors, turn down the air, and flip off your living room lights. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and relax as Google lowers the lighting and resets the air. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can pair together to make a personalized routine are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Components From One Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Does pairing your Boulder security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you buy your components from the same place, or can you mix and match? While you can mix and match -- many devices use z-wave tech -- many times it’s more convenient to have all your smart home devices configured at the time of install.

By having your security, safety, and automation devices installed together, you make a powerful, united home security system from the start. Then you can pre-set away and create groups and routines, and not have to set up a skill differently later. You could mix and match your security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you will have a greater chance they won’t work together. Just make sure that any additional alarms, cameras, or smart items are entered to your security system first, and then use voice commands with the ADT skill.
