Control Your Burlington Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can access your wireless system to turn on your interior lighting, activate your locks, and send tripped alarm alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring experts. Then if you’re preparing for bed or to run some errands, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras spring into protection mode. That’s a nice convenience when you’re rushing to leave quickly and can’t make it to the key pad.

How can you pair Google Nest or Alexa with your Burlington security system:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To enable voice prompts on your home security system, you’ll have to enable the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can instruct your smart speaker to perform many of the commands that you can manage in your mobile security app. With natural voice controls, you can arm or disarm your alarms, adjust your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check if you left the garage door open.

Then again, you could use different skills to manage each separate camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can grow to overkill. One of the advantages of pairing your Burlington security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that everything is found in one skill. Luckily, you can outfit your home with alarms, cameras, and automation devices that will work together with one voice command.

What Voice Instructions Can You Use When You Link Your Burlington Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Alexa and Google can do more than just turning off your smart bulbs or setting your alarms. You might want to check the status of your smart devices or calibrate any automation component to a custom scene. You may also tell your AI assistant to schedule your components just like you could in your mobile security app.

Try out these prompts for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You may also create a routine in the Alexa or Google app that combines many devices together. For instance, say “Google, I’m going out,” and lock your smart door locks, flip on your window and door sensors, turn down the air, and flip off every light in the house. Or set up a routine for “tv time,” and let your thermostat, lights, and other devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can combine together for a preset scene are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Devices From One Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Is pairing your Burlington security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa simpler if you get your alarms and cameras from the initial install, or can you pick over time? While you can mix and match -- as long as your device uses z-wave wireless connections -- you may find that it’s more convenient to have all your security components configured at the time of install.

When you get your devices activated at the initial install, you create a united security system from the start. Then you can design away and make groups, routines, and custom commands, and not have to set up a skill differently later. You could add different smart components as you go, but then you will have to troubleshoot to get them to work in sync. Simply ensure that any added components are entered to your security system first, and then use voice commands using the ADT voice prompts.
