Command Your Hartford Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your voice activated assistants like Google or Alexa can access your wireless system to command your interior lighting, lock your smart locks, and send tripped alarm alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then as you’re preparing for bed or to run some errands, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into protection mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re trying to leave quickly and don’t want to pull up the phone app.

Here’s how using your Hartford security system with Google Nest or Amazon’s Alexa works:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To turn on voice control on your home security system, you’ll need to enable the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your devices to perform many of the tasks that you can do in your ADT Control app. With easy voice controls, you can arm or disarm your system, raise or lower your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

Conversely, you can use other skills to manage each security and automation component, but that can seem like a mess. One of the benefits of pairing your Hartford security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that all your voice commands are conveniently found in the same place. Luckily, you can personalize your house with all sorts of security and automation components all together when you buy your ADT security system.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Use When You Pair Your Hartford Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just flipping on the lights or arming your alarm system. You can also find out the status of your smart devices or change a component to a custom setting. You might also command Alexa or Google to schedule your devices just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Try out these prompts for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You may also preset a routine in the Google or Alexa app that links multiple alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving the house,” and trigger your smart locks, flip on your alarms, turn down the air, and extinguish every light in the house. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and use the command to lower the lighting and put the thermostat to the perfect level. The devices you can combine together to make a custom scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Items From One Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Is connecting your Hartford security system to Google Nest or Alexa easier if you order your devices from one place, or can you build over time? While you can mix and match -- many devices use z-wave wireless connections -- you may find that it’s easier to have all your smart home devices configured at the time of install.

When you have your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed at one time, you instantly create a powerful, cohesive system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and devise routines and groups, with every device working on day one. You could get different security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have a greater chance they won’t work together. Just make sure that any extra components are entered to your home security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google with the ADT phrases.
