Command Your Toledo Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can control your Toledo security system with your voice? Wouldn’t it be amazing if your Toledo security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Toledo security system you can create an exciting boost.

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can link to your security and automation system to command your interior lighting, lock your door locks, and send tripped alarm alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re rushing to lock up quickly and have your hands full.

How can you link Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa with your Toledo security system:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant listen for the voice commands for your security system, you’ll have to activate the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your devices to perform a majority of of the things that you can manage in your mobile security app. With easy voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your system, adjust your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

You could use other Google or Alexa skills to manage each security and automation item, but that can seem like a mess. One of the benefits of pairing your Toledo security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that every voice command for every component is conveniently found in one place. Luckily, you can customize your home with alarms, automation, and security cameras at the same time when you get your security system.

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

Google and Alexa can do more things than just turning on your smart bulbs or disarming your alarms. You might want to see the status of your sensors or adjust any automation component to a custom setting. You can also ask your AI assistant to auto-adjust your devices just like you could in the ADT app.

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

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You can also set a routine within the Google or Alexa app that links different alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For example, say “Google, I’m going out,” and lock your smart locks, flip on your motion sensors, turn down the smart thermostat, and flip off your smart lights. Or set a routine for “tv time,” and watch as Alexa dims the lighting and turns up the temperature. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can combine together to make a preset scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Smart Items From A Single Place Or Mix And Match?

Does pairing your Toledo security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you buy your components from the same place, or can you build over time? While you can mix and match -- as long as your device uses z-wave technology -- you may find that it’s easier to get all your smart home devices configured at the initial install.

When you have your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you make a cohesive home security system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and devise routines and groups, with all your devices working from the outset. You could mix and match your smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you may have hope that they work together. However, make sure that any extra components are paired to your security system first, and then use voice commands through the ADT phrases.
