10 Google Home compatible products

10 Google Home compatible products
Users can switch on, dim, brighten and change color all through Google Home.

Here are a collection of Google Home-compatible products that are popular in the smart home market.

Philips Hue

Users can switch on, dim, brighten and change color all through Google Home. There are a number of Philips Hue products. The starter set that includes a hub and three White and Color Ambiance lights is more versatile, because it supports different colors and temperatures. The Hue White Starter Kit doesn’t have all the different colors, but still lets users set dimming levels.

Expand the lighting system with up to 12 Hue accessories, such as a Hue Dimmer Switch, Hue Tap, or Hue Motion Sensor. Install the LED lights as you would install ordinary bulbs and pair them with the Hue Bridge, which allows you to control smart-bulb-equipped lamps and overhead lights via the Philips Hue App.

Users can control the lights with voice using Alexa and Apple HomeKit as well. Pair it for home automation with existing Nest or Samsung SmartThings system.

The Nest Learning thermostat

Feeling too hot or too cold? Instead of getting up to make the adjustment on your thermostat, you may now do it via Google Home. Users may ask Google Home what the current temperature is or what the thermostat is set to. Users can make temperature adjustment by specifying a set degree, or just say “Make it cooler.” If there are multiple thermostats in the house, users can assign a name to each of them and then address them individually.

The 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat is thinner and has a bigger and sharper display. With Farsight, it lights up when it sees a user coming and shows the time or temperature from across the room. The Nest Thermostat, which is the first thermostat to get ENERGY STAR certified, can also save energy.

The best part about the Nest Learning Thermostat is that it can learn user habits after a week of training it.

Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat

Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat allows users to control from anywhere, via iPhone, iPad, Android or computer. The flexibility of the thermostat allows users to uniquely program their device as either a home or business thermostat and then offers scheduling features specific to their needs.

Once set up with Google Home, a user can use voice command to adjust the temperature and get the current temperature or thermostat setting.

Tell your Wi-Fi smart thermostat what temperature you prefer when you wake up, and you’ll never have to endure another cold morning. This smart thermostat learns your heating and cooling cycle times to deliver just the right temperature.

Users can remotely monitor and manage home’s comfort and energy usage anytime, from anywhere. The function is available for iOS and Android devices. Temperature alerts and filter change reminders can be sent to connected network devices and displayed on Honeywell Wi-Fi smart thermostat.

Simply use your mobile device and the TV you already own to cast your favorite TV shows, movies, music, sports, games, and more. Chromecast works with iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Mac, Windows laptop or Chromebook.

With the help of Google Home, users can fire up video using just the power of their voice. With YouTube and Netflix both supported, unwinding in front of the TV is not easier.

The little puck-size device connects to your home network via Wi-Fi. Once you’ve hooked it up, you can tell Google Home to play “Travelers” via Netflix on your Chromecast, and it’ll start it right up for you. There are also audio-only and 4K versions of the Chromecast, depending on your needs.

The new Chromecast has higher video resolution and lower buffering, thanks to the enhanced WiFi architecture.

Samsung SmartThings

The Samsung SmartThings home monitoring kit lets users control and monitor their home from anywhere in the world. The kit includes a Samsung SmartThings hub, two Samsung SmartThings multipurpose sensors, one Samsung SmartThings motion sensor and one Samsung SmartThings outlet.

Users can monitor their home to protect their families and properties; automate lights and electronics; and create a safer, more efficient home that is set to their unique preferences. You can even keep an eye on things when you pair a compatible camera with your video-ready Samsung SmartThings hub.

Google Home integration allow users to control connected lights, outlets and thermostats with the power of voice. They can voice commands as simple as “Ok Google, turn on the bedroom fan.” The system may be set up to trigger lights to automatically turn on when there’s motion and turn off when people leave.

Logitech Harmony Elite

Harmony Elite is a remote that offers powerful, intuitive way to control home entertainment. Harmony Elite goes beyond TV and movies.

Control access to your home with Google Assistant. Auto-unlock your door as you approach and automatically locks your door after you enter. And the 24/7 activity log lets users know who opened you door and when.
