Command Your Hoover Security System With Alexa or Google Nest

Did you know you can command your Hoover home security system with your voice-controlled smart speakers? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your Hoover security system was more intuitive? Well, good news! Using voice commands from your smart speaker with your Hoover security system you can create an intuitive boost.

Your smart speaker assistants like Google or Alexa can be paired with your wireless system to command your smart lights, lock your smart locks, and push tripped alarm notifications to your smartphone and ADT monitoring experts. Then if you’re ready for bed or to run some errands, all you have to do is say “Goodbye,” and watch everything slip into guard mode. That’s a nice time saver when you’re trying to leave quickly and have your arms full.

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

Turn On The ADT Control Using The Alexa or Google App

To get voice commands working with your security and automation system, you’ll need to enable the ADT Control skill in the Google Nest or Alexa app. Then you can ask your smart speaker to perform many of the things that you can manage in your mobile ADT Control app. With natural voice commands, you can activate your system, control your smart bulbs and smart thermostat, or see if the garage door is opened.

You could use other Google or Alexa skills to work with each camera, alarm, and automation item, but that can become a bit unwieldy. One of the advantages of linking your Hoover security system to Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa is that everything is found in one place. Luckily, you can personalize your house with alarms, automation, and security cameras that will work off each other with one voice command.

What Voice Commands Can You Say When You Link Your Hoover Security System To Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa?

Alexa and Google can do more things than just turning on your smart lights or arming your motion sensors. You can also see the status of your sensors or adjust your thermostat to a predetermined level. You might also ask your smart speaker to plan a timetable for your alarms and cameras just like you could in the ADT app.

Try out these commands for your Google Nest or Amazon's Alexa:

  • “Arm my security system.”

  • “Lock the main door.”

  • “Turn off my porch light.”

  • “Did I leave the garage door open?”

  • “Record a clip from my doorbell camera.”

  • “How cold is it in here?”

You might also create a routine within the Google or Alexa app that combines multiple devices together. For example, say “Alexa, I’m leaving,” and activate your smart locks, turn on your motion sensors, lower the air, and flip off your living room lights. Or set up a routine for “bedtime,” and use the command to dim the lighting and set the temperature to a more comfortable level. The devices you can combine together to make a custom routine are seemingly endless.

Multiple Mobile Devices

Should You Buy All Your Automated Items From One Manufacturer Or Or Build Over Time?

Does linking your Hoover security system to Google Nest or Alexa work best if you buy your devices from the initial install, or can you mix and match? While you can mix and match -- many devices use z-wave wireless connections -- you may find that it’s simpler to get all your devices configured at the time of install.

By having your alarms, cameras, safety detectors, and automation devices installed together, you instantly create one cohesive security system from the outset. Then you can design away and create routines and groups, and not have to set up a skill differently later. You could get different smart devices as you go, but then you might have a greater chance they won’t work together. Just make sure that any extra components are entered to your home security system first, and then have your AI assistant respond using the ADT phrases.
