Our top three Google-compatible home security systems do the best job of integrating with Google Assistant for simple, convenient voice control. We also looked at our other top security brands, but we didn’t find any that offered more options or better integration than the three we selected.
After researching how all of our favorite home security systems work with both Google and Amazon Alexa, we found that Alexa is more useful for home security voice control.
The brands that we picked as the best Alexa-compatible security systems use voice control for more than just arming the system and dimming the lights. In fact, Scout lets you use Alexa to call emergency services or your emergency contact list for help—a feature that isn’t even available with Google Assistant.
When you line up Google against Alexa in regard to home security functionality, Alexa just does a better job of utilizing voice control for both convenience and safety. If we were to pick a winner in the voice control wars, Amazon Alexa would be the clear champion.
