Control Your Gulfport Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

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

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can link to your wireless system to turn on your interior lighting, set your smart locks, and push tripped alarm notifications to your phone and ADT monitoring team. Then as you’re ready for bed or to get out of the house, all you have to do is tell your home “Goodbye,” and your system will spring into protection mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re hurrying to lock up quickly and don’t want to fiddle with the smartphone app.

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

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To switch on voice commands on your security and automation system, you’ll want to activate the ADT Control skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can instruct your smart speaker to perform almost all of the tasks that you can do in your ADT Control app. With intuitive voice commands, you can arm or disarm your system, adjust your smart lighting and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

Conversely, you can use other skills to control each separate security and automation item, but that can grow to overkill. One of the benefits of linking your Gulfport security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that every voice command for every component is easily found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, cameras, and automation devices and link them with Alexa or Google Nest on install.

What Voice Instructions Can You Say When You Pair Your Gulfport Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just flipping on your smart bulbs or arming your alarms. You might want to find out the status of your smart devices or adjust your thermostat to a predetermined level. You may also command your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT app.

Try out these commands for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You may also set a routine within Google or Alexa that puts different devices together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and activate your smart door locks, turn on your window and door sensors, turn down the air, and extinguish your smart lights. Or preset a routine for “tv time,” and let your all you devices automatically adjust. The components you can combine together in a custom scene are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Automated Components From A Single Place Or Mix And Match?

Is pairing your Gulfport security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you buy your alarms and cameras from the initial install, or can you pick over time? While you can use different components -- as long as your device uses z-wave wireless connections -- you may find that it’s simpler to get all your smart home devices configured at the time of install.

When you have your devices installed together, you make a cohesive system from the beginning. Then you can program away and devise groups and routines, and know each command will work perfectly on day one. You could add different security components as you go, but then you will have a greater chance they won’t work together. Just make sure that any added components are paired to your home security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT skill.
