Command Your Olympia Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your AI assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to command your interior lighting, activate your door locks, and send system alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then if you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, 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 don’t want to pull up the phone app.

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

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To get voice commands turned on for your home security system, you’ll need to activate the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can ask your devices to perform a majority of of the things that you can do in your ADT Control app. With intuitive voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your alarms, adjust your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

You could use different Alexa or Google skills to control each separate alarm, sensor, and automation item, but that can seem like a mess. One of the benefits of pairing your Olympia security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that every voice command for every component is easily found in the same place. Luckily, you can personalize your house with all sorts of security and automation components and link them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

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

Alexa and Google can do more than just flipping on your smart lights or setting your motion sensors. You can also find out the status of your sensors or change your thermostat to a predetermined level. You may also tell your AI assistant to auto-adjust your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Try out these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also preset a routine within Alexa or Google that combines multiple devices together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart door locks, flip on your alarms, turn down the smart thermostat, and extinguish your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “tv time,” and use the phrase to turn down the lights and set the A/C to the perfect level. The devices you can combine together in a preset scene are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Smart Components From One Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Is linking your Olympia security system to Alexa or Google Nest simpler if you buy your components from one place, or can you mix and match? While you can mix and match -- many devices use z-wave tech -- many times it’s easier to have all your smart home devices linked at the time of install.

When you get your devices installed at one time, you make a powerful, united home security system from the start. Then you can design away and make groups, routines, and custom commands, and know all your components will perform perfectly immediately. You could get different smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you will have a greater chance they won’t work together. However, make sure that any extra devices are entered to your security system first, and then use voice commands with the ADT phrases.
