Control Your Jackson Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

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

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can be paired with your state-of-the-art system to control your smart lights, lock your smart locks, and push system notifications to your phone and ADT monitoring experts. Then if you’re heading for bed or to leave the house, all you need to say is “Goodbye,” and your system will activate into protection mode. That’s a nice time saver when you’re rushing to lock up quickly and can’t make it to the key pad.

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

Switch On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To turn on voice prompts on your security and automation 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 things that you can do in your ADT Control app. With intuitive voice prompts, you can disarm or arm your alarms and sensors, adjust your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or check to see if you left the garage door open.

Conversely, you can use other Google or Alexa skills to control each alarm, sensor, and automation device, but that can grow to overkill. One of the perks of linking your Jackson security system to Google Nest or Alexa is that all your voice commands are found in one skill. Luckily, you can personalize your home with all sorts of security and automation components and pair them with Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa on install.

What Vocal Commands Can You Say When You Pair Your Jackson Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Your AI assistant can do more things than just turning on your smart bulbs or arming your motion sensors. You can also check the status of your sensors or calibrate a component to a preset setting. You may also tell your AI assistant to plan a timetable for your components just like you could in the ADT Control mobile app.

Say these phrases for your Google Nest or Alexa:

  • “Arm my home security system.”

  • “Lock the back door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

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

  • “What temperature is my thermostat?”

You may also preset a routine in the Alexa or Google app that combines different components together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving the house,” and activate your smart door locks, flip on your motion sensors, turn down the thermostat, and extinguish your living room lights. Or preset a routine for “movie night,” and relax as Google turns down the smart bulbs and turns up the thermostat. The alarms, cameras, and home automation you can combine together for a custom routine are only limited by your imagination.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Get All Your Smart Items From A Single Place Or Or Build Over Time?

Is pairing your Jackson security system to Google Nest or Alexa easier if you order your alarms and cameras from the initial install, or can you pick over time? While you can mix and match -- many devices use z-wave tech -- you may find that it’s simpler to get all your smart home devices linked at the same time.

When you get your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed together, you create a powerful, united security system from the outset. Then you can program away and devise routines and groups, with every device working on day one. You could mix and match your security components as you go, but then you may have hope that they work together. However, make sure that any added devices are paired to your home security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond with the ADT skill.
