Command Your Eau Claire Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your voice activated assistants like Google or Alexa can be paired with your security and automation system to command your interior lighting, set your locks, and send system alerts to your mobile device and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re rushing to lock up quickly and have your hands full.

Here’s how using your Eau Claire security system with Alexa or Google works:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To enable voice prompts on your security system, you’ll want to enable the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your devices to perform almost all of the tasks that you can do in your mobile security app. With intuitive voice controls, you can disarm or arm your system, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

Then again, you could use separate Alexa or Google skills to manage each alarm, sensor, and automation device, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the benefits of linking your Eau Claire security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that everything is easily found in the same skill. Luckily, you can personalize your home with alarms, cameras, and automation devices and connect them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

What Voice Commands Can You Issue When You Link Your Eau Claire Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more things than just flipping on your smart lights or arming your alarms. You can find out the status of your smart devices or adjust your thermostat to a predetermined setting. You can also command your AI assistant to schedule your devices just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these prompts for your Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You can also preset a routine in Google or Alexa that puts multiple devices together. For example, say “Google, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart door locks, arm your alarms, lower the smart thermostat, and turn off every light in the house. Or set a routine for “tv time,” and let your all you devices automatically adjust. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can link together to make a custom scene are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Smart Devices From The Same Place Or Mix And Match?

Is connecting your Eau Claire security system to Alexa or Google Nest easier if you get your devices from the same place, or can you pick over time? While you can mix and match -- as long as your device uses z-wave technology -- sometimes it’s more convenient to have all your security components configured at the same time.

When you have your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you instantly create a powerful, cohesive system from the beginning. Then you can pre-set away and devise groups, routines, and custom commands, and not have to reconfigure later. You could get different smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. However, make sure that any added devices are paired to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond using the ADT phrases.
