Command Your Hammond Security System With Google Nest Or Amazon Alexa

Did you know you can command your Hammond security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be great if your Hammond security system was voice activated? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Hammond home security system you can create an amazing improvement.

Your AI assistants like Alexa or Google can access your security and automation system to turn on your lights, activate your smart locks, and send tripped alarm notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring agents. Then if you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you have to say is “Goodbye,” and your sensors and cameras slip into ”Guard” mode. That’s a nice convenience when you’re rushing to lock up quickly and can’t pull up the mobile app.

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

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To get voice control working with your security system, you’ll have to enable the ADT skill in the Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa app. Then you can ask your devices to perform almost all of the commands that you can do in your ADT Control app. With natural voice commands, you can arm or disarm your alarms, control your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check to see if the garage door is up.

Then again, you could use other skills to work with each alarm, sensor, and automation component, but that can seem like a mess. One of the benefits of pairing your Hammond security system to Alexa or Google Nest is that everything is found in one skill. Luckily, you can customize your house with all sorts of security and automation components that will work off each other with intuitive voice commands.

What Vocal Instructions Can You Say When You Link Your Hammond Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more than just flipping on your smart lights or disarming your motion sensors. You can find out the status of your smart devices or change your thermostat to a custom setting. You may also command your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in your mobile security app.

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

  • “Arm my alarms.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my kitchen light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

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

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also preset a routine in Alexa or Google that links many components together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and lock your smart locks, flip on your alarms, turn down the smart thermostat, and flip off your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “tv time,” and let your thermostat, lights, and other devices automatically adjust. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can pair together in a personalized routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

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

Does connecting your Hammond security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you order your devices from one place, or can you pick over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- as long as your device uses z-wave technology -- you may find that it’s simpler to have all your devices linked at the same time.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed together, you create a unified home security system from the start. Then you can program away and devise groups and routines, with all your devices working at install. You could add different security components as you go, but then you may have to troubleshoot to get them to work in sync. Simply ensure that any additional components are paired to your ADT system first, and then have your AI assistant respond through the ADT phrases.
