Control Your Stockton Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to control your smart lights, activate your locks, and push tripped alarm notifications to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then as you’re preparing for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras slip into guard mode. That’s a nice convenience when you’re trying to leave quickly and don’t want to mess with the phone app.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice commands enabled on your security and automation system, you’ll need to enable the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform a majority of of the things that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice controls, you can activate your alarms and sensors, raise or lower your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use separate Alexa or Google skills to work with each separate alarm, sensor, and automation component, but that can grow to overkill. One of the advantages of pairing your Stockton security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that all your voice commands are easily found in one skill. Luckily, you can outfit your home with alarms, cameras, and automation devices and link them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Issue When You Pair Your Stockton Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Alexa and Google can do more than just turning off the lights or arming your motion sensors. You might want to check the status of your sensors or change your thermostat to a predetermined setting. You can also tell your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your devices just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these prompts for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You might also preset a routine in the Google or Alexa app that puts different alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving the house,” and activate your smart locks, flip on your alarms, lower the smart thermostat, and turn off your smart lights. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and use the prompt to dim the lighting and set the thermostat to just the right level. The components you can pair together in a personalized routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Smart Components From One Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Is pairing your Stockton security system to Alexa or Google Nest simpler if you buy your components from one place, or can you mix and match? While you can mix and match -- many devices use z-wave wireless connections -- sometimes it’s easier to have all your security components connected at the same time.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed at one time, you make one cohesive security system from the beginning. Then you can design away and make groups and routines, and know all your components will perform perfectly from the outset. You could get different security components as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. However, make sure that any extra devices are entered to your ADT system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google with the ADT voice prompts.
