Command Your Lakeland Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can control your Lakeland home security system with your voice? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your Lakeland security system was voice activated? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Lakeland security system you can create an exciting improvement.

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can access your state-of-the-art system to command your lights, lock your door locks, and send tripped alarm alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring team. Then as you’re preparing for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re trying to get out of the house quickly and have your arms full.

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

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice commands working with your security and automation system, you’ll have to activate the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your devices to perform a majority of of the tasks that you can manage in your ADT Control app. With intuitive voice prompts, you can activate your system, control your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check if you left the garage door open.

Conversely, you can use separate Alexa or Google skills to control each separate alarm, sensor, and automation item, but that can seem like a mess. One of the perks of pairing your Lakeland security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that everything is conveniently found in a singular place. Luckily, you can customize your home with all sorts of security and automation components as a package when you purchase your ADT security system.

What Voice Controls Can You Use When You Link Your Lakeland Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Alexa and Google can do more things than just flipping on your smart lights or disarming your alarm system. You can find out the status of your sensors or adjust any automation component to a predetermined scene. You can also command your smart speaker to auto-adjust your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also set a routine in the Alexa or Google app that puts many devices together. For example, say “Google, I’m leaving,” and trigger your smart door locks, arm your window and door sensors, lower the thermostat, and extinguish your smart lights. Or set up a routine for “tv time,” and let your lights, thermostat, and other devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The components you can link together in a custom scene are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

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

Is pairing your Lakeland security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you buy your components from the initial install, or can you pick over time? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave tech -- you may find that it’s simpler to have all your security components configured at the same time.

When you have your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you instantly create a cohesive security system from the beginning. Then you can design away and create groups and routines, and know all your components will perform perfectly from the outset. You could add different smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. Just make sure that any extra alarms, cameras, or smart items are paired to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond through the ADT voice prompts.
