Command Your Joplin Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can access your wireless system to turn on your interior lighting, set your door locks, and send system alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring experts. Then when you’re preparing for bed or to run some errands, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into protection mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re trying to leave quickly and don’t want to pull up the phone app.

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

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant respond to the voice commands for your security system, you’ll have to activate the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can instruct your AI assistant to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your ADT Control app. With intuitive voice commands, you can activate your alarms and sensors, raise or lower your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is opened.

Conversely, you can use separate skills to manage each separate security and automation item, but that can grow to overkill. One of the benefits of linking your Joplin security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that every voice command for every component is conveniently found in the same place. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, cameras, and automation devices that will work all together with intuitive voice commands.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Use When You Pair Your Joplin Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just flipping on your smart lights or setting your alarm system. You can also check the status of your smart devices or change your thermostat to a custom scene. You can also tell your AI assistant to schedule your devices just like you could in your mobile security app.

Say these commands for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You can also create a routine within the Google or Alexa app that links multiple components together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart locks, flip on your window and door sensors, turn down the thermostat, and turn off your smart lights. Or preset a routine for “bedtime,” and let your lights, thermostat, and other devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The devices you can combine together in a personalized routine are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Smart Devices From A Single Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Is connecting your Joplin security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa easier if you get your devices from one place, or can you mix and match? While you can mix and match -- as long as your device uses z-wave technology -- many times it’s more convenient to have all your security components configured at the initial install.

When you have your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you make a powerful, cohesive security system from the start. Then you can program away and make groups, routines, and custom commands, with every device working on day one. You could mix and match your security components as you go, but then you will have a greater chance they won’t work together. However, make sure that any extra devices are paired to your home security system first, and then use voice commands with the ADT skill.
