Control Your Camden Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can access your security and automation system to command your smart lights, lock your smart locks, and push tripped alarm notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to get out of the house, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into guard mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re hurrying to get out of the house quickly and don’t want to pull up the smartphone app.

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

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice controls for your security and automation system, you’ll want to activate the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can instruct your AI assistant to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice prompts, you can activate your alarms, raise or lower your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check if you left the garage door open.

You could use separate Alexa or Google skills to manage each camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can grow to overkill. One of the benefits of pairing your Camden security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that every voice command for every component is conveniently found in the same place. Luckily, you can outfit your home with all sorts of security and automation components that will work off each other with intuitive voice commands.

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

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning on your smart bulbs or arming your alarms. You might want to find out the status of your smart devices or change your thermostat to a predetermined level. You can also command Alexa or Google to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras 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 back door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You can also set a routine within the Google or Alexa app that links multiple components together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and activate your smart locks, flip on your alarms, lower the air, and extinguish your living room lights. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and use the command to dim the lighting 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 Automated Items From The Same Place Or Mix And Match?

Is pairing your Camden security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa easier if you get your alarms and cameras from the same place, or can you pick over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- as long as your device uses z-wave tech -- you may find that it’s simpler to have all your devices linked at the time of install.

When you get your security, safety, and automation devices installed together, you make a unified home security system from the beginning. Then you can design away and make groups and routines, and know everything will perform perfectly immediately. You could add different security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you will have hope that they work together. However, make sure that any additional components are entered to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond through the ADT skill.
