Using Your Mesa Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your AI assistants like Google or Alexa can link to your state-of-the-art system to control your lights, set your door locks, and push tripped alarm notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring team. Then if you’re ready for bed or to leave the house, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything spring into guard mode. That’s a nice advantage when you’re hurrying to lock up quickly and can’t mess with the phone app.

Here’s how to use your Mesa security system with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Google or Alexa App

To get voice commands turned on for your security system, you’ll need to turn on the ADT skill in the Alexa or Google Nest app. Then you can ask your AI assistant to perform many of the commands that you can do in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice commands, you can activate your alarms, control your smart lights and smart thermostat, or see if you left the garage door open.

You could use separate skills to work with each security and automation component, but that can grow to overkill. One of the benefits of pairing your Mesa security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that all your voice commands are conveniently found in a singular skill. Luckily, you can outfit your house with alarms, cameras, and automation devices at the same time when you get your ADT security system.

What Vocal Controls Can You Use When You Connect Your Mesa Security System To Alexa or Google Nest?

Google and Alexa can do more than just turning off the lights or arming your alarms. You might want to check the status of your sensors or calibrate your thermostat to a predetermined scene. You might also command Alexa or Google to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT app.

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

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my bedroom light.”

  • “Did I set the alarms?”

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

  • “What is my thermostat set at?”

You can also preset a routine in Google or Alexa that combines multiple alarms, cameras, and automation devices together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and trigger your smart locks, arm your window and door sensors, turn down the air, and turn off your living room lights. Or set a routine for “movie night,” and use the prompt to dim the lights and put the A/C to just the right level. The devices you can link together in a custom scene are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Automated Components From A Single Place Or Mix And Match?

Is pairing your Mesa security system to Google Nest or Alexa simpler if you get your alarms and cameras from the initial install, or can you build over time? While you can get non-ADT components -- most use z-wave tech -- many times it’s easier to get all your security components connected at the same time.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed at one time, you instantly create one united home security system from the start. Then you can program away and make groups and routines, and not have to reprogram later. You could mix and match your security components as you go, but then you might have hope that they work in sync. Just make sure that any added devices are paired to your ADT system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT phrases.
