Using Your Sugarland Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can control your Sugarland security system with your voice? Wouldn’t it be great if your Sugarland ADT security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Sugarland security system you can create an exciting improvement.

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to command your lights, set your door locks, and push system alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then as you’re heading for bed or to run some errands, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras spring into protection mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re trying to get out of the house quickly and have your arms full.

Here’s how using your Sugarland security system with Google Nest or Amazon’s Alexa works:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To switch on voice control on your home security system, you’ll want to turn on the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your AI assistant to perform almost all of the things that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With intuitive voice controls, you can activate your system, control your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is up.

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

What Vocal Instructions Can You Say When You Link Your Sugarland Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Google and Alexa can do more things than just flipping on your smart bulbs or disarming your alarm system. You can also find out the status of your camera or adjust any automation component to a preset scene. You might also ask Alexa or Google to auto-adjust your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You may also preset a routine within Google or Alexa that combines different alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving the house,” and trigger your smart door locks, flip on your window and door sensors, turn down the air, and turn off every light in the house. Or set a routine for “tv time,” and watch as your AI assistant lowers the lights and resets the air. The components you can pair together to make a custom routine are almost limitless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Devices From A Single Place Or Mix And Match?

Does pairing your Sugarland security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you buy your devices from the same place, or can you build over time? While you can mix and match -- most use z-wave tech -- you may find that it’s easier to get all your devices linked at the initial install.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed together, you instantly create a powerful, unified home security system from the start. Then you can design away and create groups and routines, with all your devices working on day one. You could mix and match your smart components as you go, but then you may have a greater chance they won’t work in sync. Simply ensure that any added devices are entered to your home security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT phrases.
