Command Your Lake Havasu Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can control your Lake Havasu ADT security system with intuitive voice commands? Wouldn’t it be amazing if your Lake Havasu security system was even easier to control? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Lake Havasu security system you can create an intuitive improvement.

Your AI assistants like Alexa or Google can link to your wireless system to control your smart lights, activate your locks, and push system alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and your system will activate into ”Guard” mode. That’s a nice time saver when you’re hurrying to leave quickly and don’t want to fiddle with the phone app.

Here’s how using your Lake Havasu security system with Google Nest or Alexa works:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice commands for your security system, you’ll want to activate the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can instruct your smart speaker to perform almost all of the commands that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With easy voice prompts, you can arm or disarm your alarms, raise or lower your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is opened.

You could use other skills to manage each separate security and automation component, but that can grow to overkill. One of the benefits of linking your Lake Havasu security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that everything is conveniently found in one place. Luckily, you can customize your home with alarms, automation, and security cameras all together when you get your ADT security system.

What Vocal Commands Can You Issue When You Pair Your Lake Havasu Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just turning off the lights or disarming your motion sensors. You might want to see the status of your sensors or adjust a component to a preset level. You can also command your AI assistant to auto-adjust your components just like you could in the ADT app.

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

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You may also create a routine within the Google or Alexa app that puts many devices together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving the house,” and lock your smart door locks, arm your window and door sensors, lower the air, and turn off your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and relax as Alexa lowers the smart bulbs and resets the temperature. 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 Components From A Single Place Or Mix And Match?

Is connecting your Lake Havasu security system to Google Nest or Alexa easier if you order 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 -- you may find that it’s more convenient to have all your security components linked at the initial install.

By having your security, safety, and automation devices installed together, you instantly create one united system from the outset. Then you can program away and make groups and routines, and know everything will work seamlessly from the outset. You could mix and match your smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. However, make sure that any additional devices are paired to your ADT system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google using the ADT voice prompts.
