Command Your Brooklyn Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can control your Brooklyn security system with intuitive voice commands? Wouldn’t it be great if your Brooklyn ADT security system was even easier to control? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Brooklyn home security system you can create an exciting boost.

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can link to your state-of-the-art system to turn on your smart lights, set your door locks, and send tripped alarm notifications to your mobile device and ADT monitoring agents. Then if you’re heading for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into protection mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re trying to leave quickly and have your arms full.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To get voice prompts turned on for your security and automation system, you’ll have to turn on the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your AI assistant to perform a majority of of the things that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice prompts, you can activate your system, raise or lower your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check if you left the garage door open.

You could use different Google or Alexa skills to control each separate camera, alarm, and automation device, but that can seem like a mess. One of the benefits of pairing your Brooklyn security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that every voice command for every component is conveniently found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can outfit your home with alarms, automation, and security cameras as a package when you get your home security system.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Say When You Connect Your Brooklyn Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just turning on your smart bulbs or setting your motion sensors. You can also check the status of your camera or calibrate any automation component to a preset scene. You can also command your AI assistant to auto-adjust your devices just like you could in the ADT app.

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

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You can also set a routine in the Alexa or Google app that puts different devices together. For instance, say “Google, I’m leaving,” and trigger your smart locks, arm your motion sensors, turn down the air, and turn off your living room lights. Or set up a routine for “movie night,” and relax as Alexa lowers the smart bulbs and resets the thermostat. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can pair together for a personalized scene are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Devices From The Same Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Is pairing your Brooklyn security system to Alexa or Google Nest easier if you buy your devices from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can mix and match -- many devices use z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s easier to have all your security components linked at the time of install.

When you have your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you create one united system from the start. Then you can pre-set away and create groups and routines, with everything working on day one. You could mix and match your security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. Just make sure that any added devices are linked to your ADT system first, and then have your AI assistant respond using the ADT phrases.
