Control Your Chandler Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can command your Chandler ADT security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your Chandler ADT security system was even easier to control? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Chandler ADT security system you can create an intuitive boost.

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your wireless system to turn on your lights, lock your door locks, and push tripped alarm alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to run some errands, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into protection mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re hurrying to lock up quickly and can’t pull up the phone app.

Here’s how to use your Chandler security system with Google Nest or Alexa:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

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

You could use separate skills to manage each camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of linking your Chandler security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that every voice command for every component is found in one skill. Luckily, you can outfit your home with alarms, cameras, and automation devices and link them with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa on install.

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

Alexa and Google can do more things than just flipping on your smart lights or setting your motion sensors. You can also find out the status of your sensors or change your thermostat to a predetermined setting. You may also command your AI assistant to auto-adjust your components just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

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

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also create a routine within Alexa or Google that links many devices together. For instance, say “Hey, Google, I’m leaving,” and activate your smart door locks, arm your alarms, lower the smart thermostat, and flip off your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “bedtime,” and use the phrase to turn down the lighting and adjust the A/C to the perfect level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together to make a custom scene are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Items From The Same Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Does linking your Chandler security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you order your devices from the same place, or can you build over time? While you can use different components -- many devices use z-wave tech -- many times it’s easier to have all your smart home devices configured at the same time.

By having your security, safety, and automation devices installed together, you create a powerful, unified home security system from the start. Then you can design away and create groups, routines, and custom commands, and not have to reconfigure later. You could get different security devices as you go, but then you might have hope that they work together. Simply ensure that any added devices are entered to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond through the ADT phrases.
