Command Your Lynchburg Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your voice activated assistants like Google or Alexa can access your state-of-the-art system to command your interior lighting, activate your locks, and send system alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to leave the house, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into guard mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re trying to leave quickly and don’t want to mess with the mobile app.

How can you link Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa with your Lynchburg security system:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To enable voice prompts on your security system, you’ll want to activate the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can instruct your devices to perform almost all of the tasks that you can manage in your ADT Control app. With intuitive voice controls, you can arm or disarm your alarms, raise or lower your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use different Alexa or Google skills to manage each camera, alarm, and automation component, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of pairing your Lynchburg security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that everything is found in the same place. Luckily, you can personalize your home with all sorts of security and automation components that will work together with voice commands.

What Voice Controls Can You Issue When You Link Your Lynchburg Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just flipping on the lights or disarming your alarm system. You can also find out the status of your smart devices or adjust your thermostat to a predetermined setting. You can also command your smart speaker to auto-adjust your components just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You can also create a routine in Alexa or Google that combines different devices together. For example, say “Hey, Google, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart door locks, turn on your motion sensors, turn down the air, and extinguish your smart lights. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and let your thermostat, lights, and other devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The components you can pair together in a custom routine are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

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

Does pairing your Lynchburg security system to Alexa or Google Nest work best if you buy your devices from the same place, or can you build over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- as long as your device uses z-wave wireless connections -- many times it’s simpler to have all your devices configured at the time of install.

By having your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you instantly create a united security system from the start. Then you can program away and devise groups and routines, with every device working on day one. 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. Just make sure that any additional components are linked to your home security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google using the ADT voice prompts.
