Control Your Savannah Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can access your wireless system to command your smart lights, activate your smart locks, and send system notifications to your phone and ADT monitoring experts. Then if you’re preparing for bed or to run some errands, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re trying to lock up quickly and can’t get to the control pad.

Here’s how to use your Savannah security system with Alexa or Google Nest:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant listen for 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 many of the things that you can do in your ADT Control app. With intuitive voice controls, you can arm or disarm your alarms, adjust your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is up.

Then again, you could use different Alexa or Google skills to control each alarm, sensor, and automation device, but that can grow to overkill. One of the advantages of linking your Savannah security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that every voice command for every component is conveniently found in a singular place. Luckily, you can customize your house with all sorts of security and automation components and link them with Google Nest or Alexa on install.

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

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning off the lights or setting your motion sensors. You might want to check the status of your sensors or calibrate a component to a predetermined level. You might also tell Alexa or Google to plan a timetable for your devices just like you could in your mobile security app.

Try out these commands for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also set a routine in Google or Alexa that links many components together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and lock your smart locks, arm your alarms, turn down the smart thermostat, and turn off your smart lights. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and relax as your AI assistant lowers the lights and turns up the thermostat. The components you can pair together in a preset scene are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Devices From A Single Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Is connecting your Savannah security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa easier if you buy your alarms and cameras from the initial install, or can you mix and match? 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 configured at the initial install.

When you get your devices installed at one time, you make a powerful, cohesive system from the outset. Then you can design away and devise groups, routines, and custom commands, and know everything will work perfectly immediately. You could add different smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you will have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. However, make sure that any extra devices are linked to your home security system first, and then use voice commands using the ADT phrases.
