Command Your Provo Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your security and automation system to control your interior lighting, set your locks, and push tripped alarm alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you need to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into protection mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re rushing to leave quickly and can’t pull up the smartphone app.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To turn on voice control on your security and automation system, you’ll have to activate the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform many of the commands that you can manage in your mobile security app. With easy voice controls, you can arm or disarm your alarms and sensors, control your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check to see if you left the garage door open.

Then again, you could use other Google or Alexa skills to work with each separate camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can seem like a mess. One of the benefits of pairing your Provo security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that everything is easily found in one skill. Luckily, you can outfit your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras that will work all together with voice commands.

What Voice Instructions Can You Use When You Link Your Provo Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Alexa and Google can do more than just flipping on your smart bulbs or setting your alarms. You can also find out the status of your sensors or change a component to a preset level. You may also ask your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your components just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

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

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You can also create a routine in Google or Alexa that puts multiple components together. For example, say “Google, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart door locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the air, and flip off every light in the house. Or set a routine for “bedtime,” and use the prompt to turn down the lights and set the A/C to the perfect level. The devices you can link together for a custom routine are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Automated Components From One Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Does linking your Provo security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you get your components from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave tech -- sometimes it’s more convenient to have all your security components configured at the time of install.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed together, you make a powerful, cohesive security system from the start. Then you can design away and create routines and groups, and not have to reprogram later. You could add different security devices as you go, but then you may have a greater chance they won’t work together. However, make sure that any extra devices are linked to your security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google using the ADT skill.
