Control Your Springfield Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can command your Springfield security system with intuitive voice commands? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your Springfield ADT security system was voice activated? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Springfield security system you can create an intuitive upgrade.

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can access your state-of-the-art system to control your interior lighting, set your smart locks, and push system alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras slip into guard mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re trying to leave quickly and don’t want to mess with the mobile app.

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

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To turn on voice prompts on your home security system, you’ll have to enable the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your smart speaker to perform a majority of of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With easy voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your alarms, raise or lower your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is opened.

Conversely, you can use separate Google or Alexa skills to control each separate security and automation item, but that can grow to overkill. One of the perks of pairing your Springfield security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is found in one place. Luckily, you can outfit your house with all sorts of security and automation components at the same time when you get your home security system.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Use When You Link Your Springfield Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning off your smart lights or disarming your alarms. You can also find out the status of your sensors or change a component to a predetermined level. You can also ask Alexa or Google to auto-adjust your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Try out these commands for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You might also set a routine within Alexa or Google that puts different devices together. For instance, say “Google, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart door locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the air, and turn off your smart lights. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and watch as Google lowers the lights and turns up the thermostat. The devices you can pair together to make a preset routine are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Smart Devices From One Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Does linking your Springfield security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you buy your components from one place, or can you build over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- as long as your device uses z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s easier to get all your smart home devices configured at the same time.

When you have your devices installed together, you instantly create one unified security system from the outset. Then you can design away and create routines and groups, with everything working from the outset. You could get different security devices as you go, but then you will have hope that they work together. Simply ensure that any additional components are linked to your ADT system first, and then have your AI assistant respond using the ADT phrases.
