Command Your Mansfield Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your security and automation system to command your lights, lock your smart locks, and push tripped alarm alerts to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then as you’re heading for bed or to get out of the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras activate into protection mode. That’s a great time saver when you’re trying to leave quickly and have your arms full.

Here’s how to use your Mansfield security system with Alexa or Google Nest:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To enable voice prompts on your home security system, you’ll have to turn on the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can tell your AI assistant to perform almost all of the tasks that you can do in your mobile security app. With natural voice prompts, you can activate your system, adjust your smart lights and smart thermostat, or check if you left the garage door open.

You could use other Alexa or Google skills to work with each camera, alarm, and automation component, but that can seem like a mess. One of the advantages of linking your Mansfield security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that everything is conveniently found in the same place. Luckily, you can outfit your home with alarms, cameras, and automation devices and pair them with Google Nest or Alexa on install.

What Vocal Controls Can You Say When You Link Your Mansfield Security System To Google Nest or Alexa?

Alexa and Google 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 change any automation component to a custom setting. You might also command Alexa or Google to auto-adjust your components just like you could in the ADT app.

Say these phrases for your Alexa or Google Nest:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You might also set a routine in Alexa or Google that links different components together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m going out,” and activate your smart locks, flip on your window and door sensors, lower the air, and flip off your smart lights. Or preset a routine for “tv time,” and watch as Alexa lowers the lighting and resets the thermostat. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can combine together in a personalized scene are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Order All Your Automated Items From One Manufacturer Or Mix And Match?

Does linking your Mansfield security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa work best if you buy your devices from the initial install, or can you pick over time? While you can use different components -- many devices use z-wave technology -- sometimes it’s more convenient to have all your security components configured at the same time.

When you get your devices installed together, you instantly create a unified system from the outset. Then you can pre-set away and make groups and routines, and know everything will perform perfectly immediately. You could add different smart alarms and cameras as you go, but then you might have to troubleshoot to get them to work together. However, make sure that any additional components are linked to your security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond using the ADT phrases.
