Command Your Modesto Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your AI assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your wireless system to command your lights, lock your smart locks, and send system alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring team. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to run some errands, all you have to say is “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re rushing to get out of the house quickly and can’t find the control pad.

How can you pair Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa with your Modesto security system:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant listen for the voice controls for your security and automation system, you’ll need to enable the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform almost all of the commands that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, adjust your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

Conversely, you can use separate Alexa or Google skills to work with each separate security and automation item, but that can grow to overkill. One of the perks of linking your Modesto security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that all your voice commands are found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can personalize your home with alarms, automation, and security cameras that will work together with intuitive voice commands.

What Voice Controls Can You Use When You Connect Your Modesto Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Alexa and Google can do more things than just flipping on your smart bulbs or arming your alarms. You can also check the status of your smart devices or change a component to a predetermined level. You can also command your smart speaker to auto-adjust your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also preset a routine within Alexa or Google that combines multiple components together. For example, say “Google, I’m leaving the house,” and activate your smart locks, turn on your alarms, turn down the thermostat, and turn off every light in the house. Or set a routine for “bedtime,” and use the prompt to lower the smart bulbs and set the A/C to just the right level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together to make a personalized scene are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

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

Is linking your Modesto security system to Alexa or Google Nest simpler if you get your alarms and cameras from the initial install, or can you build over time? While you can mix and match -- as long as your device uses z-wave wireless connections -- sometimes it’s easier to get all your security components linked at the time of install.

By having your security, safety, and automation devices installed together, you instantly create a unified system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and devise groups and routines, and know each command will perform perfectly on day one. You could add different security devices as you go, but then you will have hope that they work in sync. Simply ensure that any added components are linked to your ADT system first, and then have your AI assistant respond using the ADT phrases.
