Control Your Monroe Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your security and automation system to turn on your smart lights, lock your locks, and send system notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then as you’re ready for bed or to get out of the house, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and your system will slip into guard mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re rushing to lock up quickly and have your hands full.

How can you use Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa with your Monroe security system:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To get voice prompts enabled on your security system, you’ll need to turn on the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can ask your smart speaker to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With easy voice commands, you can disarm or arm your system, raise or lower your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is opened.

Conversely, you can use separate Alexa or Google skills to control each separate alarm, sensor, and automation device, but that can grow to overkill. One of the benefits of linking your Monroe security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that all your voice commands are easily found in the same place. Luckily, you can personalize your home with alarms, cameras, and automation devices and pair them with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa on install.

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

Google and Alexa can do more than just turning on your smart bulbs or arming your alarm system. You can also check the status of your sensors or adjust any automation component to a custom setting. You may also tell your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your devices just like you could in the ADT app.

Try out these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You can also preset a routine in the Alexa or Google app that combines many alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Hey, Google, I’m leaving the house,” and lock your smart door locks, turn on your alarms, turn down the smart thermostat, and turn off your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “bedtime,” and relax as your AI assistant dims the smart bulbs and turns up the thermostat. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can combine together to make a personalized routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Items From A Single Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Does pairing your Monroe security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you get your devices from the same place, or can you mix and match? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave wireless connections -- sometimes it’s simpler to get all your security components configured at the time of install.

When you get your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you instantly create a cohesive system from the beginning. Then you can design away and make groups and routines, and know everything will perform as it should immediately. You could get different security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. However, 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 skill.
