Control Your Muncie Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can command your Muncie home security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your Muncie home security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Muncie security system you can create an amazing upgrade.

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can access your state-of-the-art system to control your lights, lock your door locks, and send tripped alarm alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring team. Then as you’re heading for bed or to run some errands, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and your system will spring into ”Guard” mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re hurrying to get out of the house quickly and have your arms full.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To get voice prompts enabled on your home security system, you’ll want to enable the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can tell your devices to perform almost all of the tasks that you can do in your ADT Control app. With easy voice prompts, you can arm or disarm your alarms and sensors, control your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use different Google or Alexa skills to control each security and automation device, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of linking your Muncie security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is easily found in a singular place. Luckily, you can outfit your house with all sorts of security and automation components as a package when you get your home security system.

What Vocal Controls Can You Say When You Link Your Muncie Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just turning off the lights or arming your alarms. You can also check the status of your smart devices or adjust a component to a predetermined level. You might also ask your AI assistant to schedule your components just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these phrases for your Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You can also preset a routine within Alexa or Google that combines many components together. For instance, say “Google, I’m leaving the house,” and lock your smart locks, arm your alarms, turn down the thermostat, and flip off your smart lights. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and use the phrase to lower the lights and put the thermostat to a more comfortable level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together for a preset routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Automated Devices From The Same Place Or Mix And Match?

Is connecting your Muncie security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you order your devices from the initial install, or can you build over time? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave tech -- many times it’s more convenient to have all your devices connected at the time of install.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you make a cohesive system from the start. Then you can program away and devise groups and routines, and not have to reconfigure later. You could mix and match your security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you may have hope that they work in sync. Just make sure that any additional components are paired to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT skill.
