A simple way to add convenience

Adding Alexa voice integration to your ADT system is as easy as adding a new skill to Alexa. Once it’s set up, you can access the ADT app with your voice. Then ask Alexa to arm or disarm your system, control your lights and locks, and even open or close your garage door.

  • Ask Alexa to perform tasks you can perform through the ADT mobile app.

  • Alexa recognizes specific names you assigned your devices in the ADT mobile app.

  • Extend Alexa and the ADT app by adding more Amazon Echo devices around your home.

Safe & sound with ADT & Alexa Guard
