Command Your Santa Fe Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can control your Santa Fe home security system with intuitive voice commands? Wouldn’t it be amazing if your Santa Fe security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Santa Fe ADT security system you can create an intuitive upgrade.

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your state-of-the-art system to command your interior lighting, set your smart locks, and send tripped alarm notifications to your mobile device and ADT monitoring agents. Then when you’re heading for bed or to run some errands, all you need to do is say “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into ”Guard” mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re hurrying to leave quickly and can’t make it to the control pad.

Here’s how using your Santa Fe security system with Google Nest or Alexa works:

Enable The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To make your AI assistant respond to the voice prompts for your security system, you’ll have to activate the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can ask your AI assistant to perform many of the tasks that you can do in your mobile security app. With intuitive voice prompts, you can activate your alarms, control your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check if the garage door is opened.

You could use other Google or Alexa skills to work with each camera, alarm, and automation device, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the perks of linking your Santa Fe security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that everything is conveniently found in a singular place. Luckily, you can customize your home with all sorts of security and automation components that will work off each other with one voice command.

What Voice Controls Can You Issue When You Connect Your Santa Fe Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more than just turning on the lights or arming your motion sensors. You can check the status of your smart devices or adjust your thermostat to a preset scene. You might also command your smart speaker to schedule your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these prompts for your Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “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 might also create a routine within the Alexa or Google app that links multiple components together. For instance, say “Hey, Google, I’m leaving the house,” and activate your smart locks, turn on your alarms, lower the thermostat, and extinguish your smart lights. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and use the phrase to lower the lights and adjust the thermostat to a more comfortable level. The devices you can link together in a personalized routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Devices From A Single Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Is connecting your Santa Fe security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you buy your devices from the initial install, or can you build over time? While you can use different components -- most use z-wave technology -- many times it’s easier to get all your smart home devices linked at the same time.

By having your security, safety, and automation devices activated at the initial install, you instantly create a powerful, unified security system from the start. Then you can design away and create routines and groups, with everything working on day one. You could get different security components as you go, but then you will have a greater chance they won’t work in sync. However, make sure that any added components are entered to your home security system first, and then use voice commands through the ADT voice prompts.
