Using Your Beaumont Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your voice activated assistants like Alexa or Google can access your security and automation system to control your smart lights, activate your locks, and send system alerts to your phone and ADT monitoring agents. Then as you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into ”Guard” mode. That’s a great convenience when you’re trying to get out of the house quickly and can’t fiddle with the smartphone app.

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

Enable The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice control working with your security and automation system, you’ll need to activate the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can tell your smart speaker to perform a majority of of the things that you can do in your mobile security app. With natural voice commands, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, raise or lower your smart lights and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

You could use different Alexa or Google skills to work with each separate camera, alarm, and automation component, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of linking your Beaumont security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that every voice command for every component is conveniently found in one skill. Luckily, you can customize your house with alarms, cameras, and automation devices and link them with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa on install.

What Voice Instructions Can You Say When You Pair Your Beaumont Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning off your smart lights or setting your motion sensors. You can also check the status of your camera or calibrate a component to a predetermined setting. You can also tell your smart speaker to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

Here are just a few commands for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the main 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 might also set a routine within Alexa or Google that links many devices together. For instance, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and activate your smart door locks, turn on your alarms, turn down the smart thermostat, and turn off your smart lights. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and let your thermostat, lights, and other devices automatically conform to their pre-programmed setting. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can combine together for a custom routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Components From One Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Is linking your Beaumont security system to Alexa or Google Nest simpler if you order your components from one place, or can you build over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- most use z-wave tech -- you may find that it’s easier to have all your smart home devices configured at the initial install.

By having your security, safety, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you make a powerful, unified security system from the start. Then you can pre-set away and make routines and groups, with every device working at install. You could get different smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. Simply ensure that any added alarms, cameras, or smart items are linked to your home security system first, and then use voice commands through the ADT skill.
