Using Your Baton Rouge Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can command your Baton Rouge ADT security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be amazing if your Baton Rouge ADT security system was even easier to control? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Baton Rouge home security system you can create an intuitive boost.

Your voice activated assistants like Google or Alexa can be paired with your wireless system to control your smart lights, set your locks, and send tripped alarm notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then if you’re heading for bed or to run some errands, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into ”Guard” mode. That’s a nice time saver when you’re trying to get out of the house quickly and don’t want to fiddle with the smartphone app.

Here’s how using your Baton Rouge security system with Google Nest or Alexa works:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice prompts for your security and automation system, you’ll need to activate the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can ask your devices to perform a majority of of the things that you can do in your mobile security app. With easy voice controls, you can disarm or arm your system, control your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is opened.

You could use separate Google or Alexa skills to manage each security and automation device, but that can grow to overkill. One of the perks of pairing your Baton Rouge security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is conveniently found in a singular place. Luckily, you can customize your home with alarms, cameras, and automation devices as a package when you buy your ADT security system.

What Vocal Controls Can You Use When You Link Your Baton Rouge Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Alexa and Google can do more things than just flipping on your smart bulbs or disarming your motion sensors. You can also check the status of your camera or adjust a component to a custom scene. You might also tell your smart speaker to auto-adjust your alarms and cameras 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 home security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You might also preset a routine within the Google or Alexa app that links different components together. For example, say “Hey, Google, I’m going out,” and lock your smart door locks, turn on your alarms, lower the smart thermostat, and extinguish your living room lights. Or set a routine for “tv time,” and use the prompt to lower the smart bulbs and put the A/C to just the right level. The devices you can combine together to make a personalized routine are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Automated Devices From One Place Or Mix And Match?

Does pairing your Baton Rouge security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you buy your alarms and cameras from one place, or can you build over time? While you can use different components -- most use z-wave wireless connections -- many times it’s simpler to get all your security components configured at the time of install.

When you get your devices installed together, you create one unified security system from the start. Then you can design away and create routines and groups, and not have to reprogram later. You could mix and match your security components as you go, but then you may have a greater chance they won’t work in sync. However, make sure that any extra devices are entered to your home security system first, and then use voice commands with the ADT voice prompts.
