Control Your Binghamton Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to command your smart lights, set your door locks, and send tripped alarm notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re heading for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into guard mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re rushing to get out of the house quickly and can’t get to the key pad.

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

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice prompts for your security system, you’ll have to turn on the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can ask your smart speaker to perform many of the commands that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your alarms, adjust your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is opened.

You could use different skills to control each separate camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the perks of pairing your Binghamton security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that all your voice commands are easily found in one place. Luckily, you can customize your home with alarms, cameras, and automation devices all together when you purchase your home security system.

What Voice Controls Can You Say When You Connect Your Binghamton Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just turning off your smart lights or setting your alarms. You can check the status of your camera or calibrate any automation component to a custom level. You may also command your smart speaker to auto-adjust your devices just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Say these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You can also preset a routine in the Alexa or Google app that links many alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Google, I’m leaving the house,” and trigger your smart door locks, flip on your motion sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and extinguish your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and relax as Google turns down the lights and resets the temperature. The components you can combine together to make a custom routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Smart Items From One Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Does connecting your Binghamton security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you buy your alarms and cameras from the same place, or can you mix and match? While you can use different components -- most use z-wave tech -- many times it’s more convenient to get all your security components connected at the initial install.

By having your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you instantly create one united system from the beginning. Then you can design away and make groups, routines, and custom commands, and not have to set up a skill differently later. You could get different security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. Just make sure that any additional devices are linked to your home security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google through the ADT voice prompts.
