Command Your Myrtle Beach Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can access your security and automation system to turn on your smart lights, lock your smart locks, and push tripped alarm notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then if you’re ready for bed or to run some errands, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and watch everything activate into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re rushing to leave quickly and can’t pull up the phone app.

How can you pair Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa with your Myrtle Beach security system:

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To make your AI assistant understand the voice controls for your security and automation system, you’ll need to enable the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can ask your smart speaker to perform almost all of the tasks that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With intuitive voice commands, you can activate your alarms, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is up.

Conversely, you can use separate skills to manage each security and automation item, but that can seem like a mess. One of the perks of linking your Myrtle Beach security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that all your voice commands are found in one place. Luckily, you can personalize your home with all sorts of security and automation components that will work together with one voice command.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Use When You Link Your Myrtle Beach Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning off your smart bulbs or setting your alarms. You might want to find out the status of your camera or calibrate any automation component to a custom setting. You can also tell your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your components just like you could in the ADT app.

Try out these prompts for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the front door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I close the garage door?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You might also create a routine within Alexa or Google that puts many devices together. For instance, say “Google, I’m going out,” and trigger your smart door locks, turn on your window and door sensors, turn down the air, and flip off your smart lights. Or set a routine for “bedtime,” and use the command to dim the smart bulbs and set the temperature to the perfect level. The devices you can pair together in a preset routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Smart Components From The Same Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Is pairing your Myrtle Beach security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you order your devices from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can use different components -- most use z-wave technology -- you may find that it’s easier to get all your smart home devices connected at the initial install.

When you have your security, safety, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you instantly create a powerful, united home security system from the start. Then you can program away and create groups, routines, and custom commands, with every device working at install. You could get different security devices as you go, but then you may have to troubleshoot to get them to work in sync. Simply ensure that any additional alarms, cameras, or smart items are linked to your security system first, and then prompt Alexa or Google through the ADT phrases.
