Using Your Florence Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can access your Florence home security system with your voice? Wouldn’t it be great if your Florence ADT security system was voice activated? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Florence home security system you can create an intuitive boost.

Your voice activated assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your wireless system to turn on your lights, lock your locks, and send system notifications to your phone and ADT monitoring agents. Then if you’re preparing for bed or to run some errands, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into guard mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re rushing to lock up quickly and don’t want to fiddle with the mobile app.

How can you pair Alexa or Google Nest with your Florence security system:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant respond to the voice commands for your home security system, you’ll have to turn on the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your AI assistant to perform a majority of of the commands that you can do in your mobile security app. With easy voice prompts, you can activate your alarms, raise or lower your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is up.

Then again, you could use other Alexa or Google skills to control each separate alarm, sensor, and automation device, but that can seem like a mess. One of the perks of linking your Florence security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that everything is easily found in one skill. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras and pair them with Google Nest or Alexa on install.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Issue When You Link Your Florence Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Alexa and Google can do more than just flipping on your smart bulbs or arming your motion sensors. You can check the status of your smart devices or adjust any automation component to a preset level. You may also ask your AI assistant to schedule your devices just like you could in the ADT app.

Try out these commands for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “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 might also create a routine in the Alexa or Google app that puts many components together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and lock your smart door locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and turn off every light in the house. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and sit back as Alexa dims the lighting and turns up the thermostat. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can combine together to make a custom scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Components From One Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Does connecting your Florence security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you get your devices from one place, or can you build over time? While you can use different components -- most use z-wave wireless connections -- sometimes it’s easier to get all your security components linked at the same time.

When you get your devices installed together, you create a cohesive security system from the beginning. Then you can pre-set away and make routines and groups, and not have to reprogram later. You could mix and match your smart components as you go, but then you will have a greater chance they won’t work in sync. Just make sure that any additional devices are linked to your security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google using the ADT voice prompts.
