Command Your Colorado Springs Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your voice activated assistants like Google or Alexa can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to turn on your smart lights, activate your locks, and send tripped alarm alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re ready for bed or to get out of the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into protection mode. That’s a nice convenience when you’re hurrying to lock up quickly and have your hands full.

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

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice commands 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 AI assistant to perform many of the things that you can do in your ADT Control app. With intuitive voice commands, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, control your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check to see if you left the garage door open.

Conversely, you can use other skills to work with each separate camera, alarm, and automation device, but that can seem like a mess. One of the perks of linking your Colorado Springs security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that every voice command for every component is found in one place. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras that will work together with one voice command.

What Voice Controls Can You Issue When You Pair Your Colorado Springs Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning on your smart lights or setting your motion sensors. You can find out the status of your camera or calibrate any automation component to a custom setting. You may also command your AI assistant to auto-adjust your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

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

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You can also create a routine within the Alexa or Google app that links many devices together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving the house,” and lock your smart locks, flip on your alarms, lower the air, and extinguish every light in the house. Or preset a routine for “tv time,” and use the command to dim the smart bulbs and adjust the thermostat to a more comfortable level. The components you can link together for a custom scene are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

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

Does linking your Colorado Springs 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 use different components -- most use z-wave technology -- you may find that it’s more convenient to have all your devices configured at the time of install.

When you have your devices activated at the initial install, you instantly create one united security system from the start. Then you can pre-set away and devise groups, routines, and custom commands, and not have to reconfigure later. You could mix and match your smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work in sync. Simply ensure that any additional alarms, cameras, or smart items are linked to your ADT system first, and then use voice commands with the ADT phrases.
