Using Your Omaha Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can access your Omaha ADT security system with intuitive voice commands? Wouldn’t it be amazing if your Omaha home security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Omaha home security system you can create an intuitive improvement.

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your wireless system to turn on your smart lights, lock your door locks, and push tripped alarm alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re heading for bed or to leave the house, all you have to say is “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into guard mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re hurrying to leave quickly and can’t mess with the smartphone app.

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

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant respond to the voice prompts for your home security system, you’ll want to turn on the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your smart speaker to perform many of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With easy voice commands, you can activate your system, adjust your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use separate Alexa or Google skills to control each camera, alarm, and automation component, but that can grow to overkill. One of the benefits of pairing your Omaha security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is conveniently found in one place. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras and link them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Say When You Connect Your Omaha Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just flipping on your smart lights or setting your alarm system. You can also see the status of your smart devices or adjust your thermostat to a preset level. You may also command your smart speaker to schedule your components just like you could in the ADT app.

Here are just a few prompts for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You might also create a routine in Google or Alexa that puts many alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For example, say “Google, I’m going out,” and lock your smart locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the air, and turn off every light in the house. Or set up a routine for “movie night,” and use the phrase to turn down the lights and set the temperature to a more comfortable level. The components you can pair together for a personalized scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Automated Items From One Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Is pairing your Omaha security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you buy your alarms and cameras from the same place, or can you mix and match? While you can use different components -- most use z-wave technology -- many times it’s more convenient to have all your security components connected at the time of install.

When you have your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you create a powerful, united home security system from the beginning. Then you can pre-set away and devise groups and routines, and know everything will perform perfectly immediately. You could add different security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. Simply ensure that any added components are paired to your home security system first, and then use voice commands using the ADT phrases.
