Using Your Lawrence Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your state-of-the-art system to command your interior lighting, lock your door locks, and push system alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re heading for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras slip into protection mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re rushing to get out of the house quickly and have your hands full.

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

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant respond to the voice prompts for your security and automation system, you’ll have to activate the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your AI assistant to perform many of the tasks that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With intuitive voice commands, you can disarm or arm your alarms, adjust your smart lights and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is up.

Conversely, you can use different Alexa or Google skills to work with each separate camera, alarm, and automation device, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the perks of linking your Lawrence security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that everything is conveniently found in one place. Luckily, you can customize your home with alarms, automation, and security cameras that will work together with intuitive voice commands.

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

Alexa and Google can do more than just turning off your smart lights or arming your alarms. You can check the status of your smart devices or adjust any automation component to a custom level. You can also tell your smart speaker to plan a timetable for your devices just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these prompts for your Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You may also create a routine in the Google or Alexa app that combines multiple alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart door locks, flip on your motion sensors, turn down the thermostat, and turn off your living room lights. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and let your lights, thermostat, and other devices automatically adjust. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together for a personalized routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Smart Devices From The Same Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Is linking your Lawrence security system to Alexa or Google Nest easier if you buy your components from the initial install, or can you pick over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- most use z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s more convenient to have all your smart home devices configured at the initial install.

By having your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed together, you instantly create one cohesive home security system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and make groups and routines, with all your devices working on day one. You could get different security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you may have a greater chance they won’t work in sync. However, make sure that any additional components are entered to your home security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond using the ADT skill.
