Control Your New Brunswick Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can control your New Brunswick ADT security system with intuitive voice commands? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your New Brunswick security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your New Brunswick ADT security system you can create an intuitive improvement.

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your security and automation system to turn on your interior lighting, set your locks, and send system notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then if you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and your system will activate into protection mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re hurrying to get out of the house quickly and can’t make it to the key pad.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice prompts turned on for your security and automation system, you’ll need to activate the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can ask your smart speaker to perform many of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice prompts, you can activate your alarms and sensors, control your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use separate Google or Alexa skills to work with each camera, alarm, and automation component, but that can grow to overkill. One of the advantages of pairing your New Brunswick security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that all your voice commands are easily found in a singular place. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, cameras, and automation devices as a package when you buy your security system.

What Voice Controls Can You Say When You Pair Your New Brunswick Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just flipping on the lights or setting your alarms. You might want to see the status of your camera or adjust a component to a preset scene. You might also tell your smart speaker to schedule your components just like you could in the ADT app.

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

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the back 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 might also set a routine within Alexa or Google that combines multiple alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For example, say “Hey, Google, I’m going out,” and activate your smart door locks, flip on your alarms, lower the air, and flip off every light in the house. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and use the command to lower the lights and set the A/C to a more comfortable level. The components you can link together for a custom scene are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Items From A Single Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Does connecting your New Brunswick security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you buy your alarms and cameras from the initial install, or can you mix and match? While you can get non-ADT components -- most use z-wave wireless connections -- sometimes it’s easier to get all your devices linked at the initial install.

By having your security, safety, and automation devices installed together, you make a unified home security system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and devise routines and groups, with every device working at install. You could add different smart components as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work in sync. However, make sure that any extra devices are paired to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond through the ADT phrases.
