Command Your Las Cruces Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can command your Las Cruces security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be great if your Las Cruces home security system was voice activated? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Las Cruces home security system you can create an amazing improvement.

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to command your lights, lock your smart locks, and push tripped alarm alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring experts. Then as you’re heading for bed or to run some errands, all you need to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into ”Guard” mode. That’s a nice time saver when you’re hurrying to lock up quickly and have your hands full.

Here’s how to pair your Las Cruces security system with Google Nest or Alexa:

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 have to enable the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform a majority of of the commands that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With intuitive voice commands, you can arm or disarm your system, raise or lower your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is opened.

Then again, you could use other Google or Alexa skills to control each security and automation item, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the perks of linking your Las Cruces security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that every voice command for every component is easily found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can personalize your house with alarms, cameras, and automation devices as a package when you get your home security system.

What Voice Instructions Can You Say When You Pair Your Las Cruces Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more than just turning off the lights or setting your motion sensors. You might want to check the status of your camera or change a component to a custom level. You can also command your AI assistant to schedule your devices just like you could in your mobile security app.

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

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You may also set a routine within the Google or Alexa app that puts many components together. For instance, say “Google, I’m leaving the house,” and lock your smart door locks, flip on your alarms, turn down the air, and extinguish your living room lights. Or set a routine for “tv time,” and use the phrase to lower the smart bulbs and set the temperature to the perfect level. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can pair together for a custom scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

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

Is linking your Las Cruces security system to Google Nest or Alexa easier if you get your components from the same place, or can you mix and match? While you can get non-ADT components -- many devices use z-wave wireless connections -- many times it’s more convenient to have all your smart home devices linked at the initial install.

When you have your devices installed together, you create one unified home security system from the beginning. Then you can program away and make routines and groups, and know each command will work perfectly immediately. You could mix and match your security devices as you go, but then you will have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. However, make sure that any additional alarms, cameras, or smart items are paired to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond through the ADT phrases.
