Control Your Davenport Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can command your Davenport home security system with your voice? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your Davenport security system was even easier to control? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Davenport home security system you can create an amazing upgrade.

Your smart speaker assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your wireless system to turn on your lights, lock your locks, and send system alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring team. Then if you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into protection mode. That’s a nice convenience when you’re hurrying to lock up quickly and can’t find the your Command pad.

How can you use Google Nest or Alexa with your Davenport security system:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant respond to the voice controls for your security and automation system, you’ll want to turn on the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can ask your devices to perform a majority of of the commands that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With intuitive voice commands, you can activate your alarms, raise or lower your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check to see if you left the garage door open.

You could use other Google or Alexa skills to manage each separate camera, alarm, and automation device, but that can seem like a mess. One of the perks of linking your Davenport security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that every voice command for every component is found in the same place. Luckily, you can personalize your house with all sorts of security and automation components that will work all together with one voice command.

What Voice Controls Can You Issue When You Pair Your Davenport Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning on your smart lights or setting your alarms. You might want to find out the status of your sensors or change any automation component to a preset setting. You might also command your AI assistant to auto-adjust your devices just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Try out these phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You may also set a routine within Alexa or Google that combines multiple components together. For instance, say “Google, I’m going out,” and activate your smart locks, arm your alarms, turn down the smart thermostat, and flip off your living room lights. Or set a routine for “tv time,” and let your all you devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The components you can pair together to make a personalized scene are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Smart Devices From A Single Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Is pairing your Davenport security system to Alexa or Google Nest simpler if you get your components from the same place, or can you mix and match? While you can get non-ADT components -- many devices use z-wave wireless connections -- you may find that it’s easier to get all your devices configured at the same time.

By having your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you make one united security system from the start. Then you can pre-set away and devise groups, routines, and custom commands, and know everything will work seamlessly from the outset. You could add different smart devices as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. Simply ensure that any extra components are entered to your ADT system first, and then use voice commands through the ADT phrases.
