Command Your Jamestown Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to control your interior lighting, activate your locks, and push system notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re ready for bed or to run some errands, all you have to say is “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into protection mode. That’s a great advantage when you’re hurrying to get out of the house quickly and can’t get to the your Command pad.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice controls for your home security system, you’ll have to turn on the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can instruct your smart speaker to perform many of the things that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With easy voice commands, you can activate your system, raise or lower your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is up.

Then again, you could use separate Alexa or Google skills to manage each alarm, sensor, and automation item, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the benefits of pairing your Jamestown security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that all your voice commands are conveniently found in one place. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras all together when you get your home security system.

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

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning on your smart lights or setting your alarms. You can check the status of your sensors or adjust a component to a preset setting. You might also tell your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Try out these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the front 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 may also preset a routine within the Google or Alexa app that puts different components together. For instance, say “Google, I’m leaving the house,” and lock your smart locks, turn on your window and door sensors, lower the smart thermostat, and extinguish your smart lights. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and sit back as Google dims the lights and turns up the thermostat. The components you can combine together to make a preset scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Automated Items From One Place Or Mix And Match?

Does linking your Jamestown security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you order your components from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- most use z-wave wireless connections -- sometimes it’s easier to get all your smart home devices linked at the time of install.

When you get your security, safety, and automation devices installed at one time, you make one unified security system from the outset. Then you can program away and make groups, routines, and custom commands, and not have to reconfigure later. You could mix and match your security alarms and cameras as you go, but then you will have hope that they work in sync. Simply ensure that any extra alarms, cameras, or smart items are entered to your security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google with the ADT phrases.
