ADT has teamed with Amazon Alexa to allow homeowners to voice control their home security. Owners can tell Alexa to tell ADT to turn off a lamp or close a garage door.

Abode Home Security Starter Kit
Abode has provided total home security in one kit. The starter kit includes sensors for the mini door/window, a remote KeyFob and a motion sensor. It will send alerts to a phone anytime a door gets opened, if so desired. The gateway, abode’s central hub that connects all of the devices in the home, has a built-in 93-decibel siren and doors automatically lock when you leave. Also, an added camera can allow homeowners to see what tripped an alarm. It also works with Nest’s Camera and Thermostat to provide total security.

The Ecobee4 comes with Amazon Alexa Voice Service built inside, which means the thermostat can help with recipes and paying music. It comes with a three-year warranty for $249.
