You know how much I love technology, right? That’s why I’m so excited to share my newest find! We love it so much that the whole family uses it: The Google Home!
It greets you, tells you about the weather, helps my son do homework and find the height of his favorite basketball player!
It also controls our thermostat, TV and lights! I will be sharing more of the other features, but today, it’s all about how Google Home and Philips Hue open the door to unlimited possibilities!
Here are some ways to talk with your Google Assistant on Google Home when controlling Philips Hue Lighting.
|To do this:||Say “Ok Google” or “Hey Google,” then…|
|To turn on/off a light||“Turn on <light name / room name>”|
|Dim a light||“Dim the <light name / room name>”|
|Brighten a light||“Brighten the <light name / room name>”|
|Set a light brightness to a certain percentage||“Set <light name / room name> to 50%”|
|Dim/Brighten lights by a certain percentage||Dim/Brighten <light name / room name> by 50%”|
|Change the color of a light||“Turn <light name / room name> green”|
|Turn on/off all lights in room||“Turn on/off lights in <room name>”|
|Turn on/off all lights||“Turn on/off all of the lights”|
The voice activation will allow you to give all the commands above and have amazing results! We customized each user on their own app, so when I greet Google Home, “Hi!”, it replies: “Hi Claudia, How can I help?” It’s awesome!
Our dogs are afraid of the dark, so we set the lights to dim but not turn off at 11:00pm! It truly opened a world of unlimited possibilities! Check it out:
I hope you have enjoyed learning all about Google Home and Philips Hue Lighting and please feel free to ask any questions! We love it so much, we’re going to buy more Philips Hue Lights at Best Buy and place them all over our home! The system is just what you needed but didn’t know … it is shining a new light at our home!!
Can’t wait to hear what you think, as usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
I didn’t know this existed. This is fun with an array of different colors!
Geez woth voice activation! This is super cool 🙂 I want this for my room.
This thing is SO COOL!! I love the Google Home, there’s so many amazing things it can do! Never fails to amaze me how great technology is haha!

I don’t have a google home device but this is totally cool; a hue for every mood! May add this this to my Chris list.
I have been curious to see all of these digital assistants. They do look cool. Just curious about how much information I want to give up.
I read about the hue lights on another blog and I look forward to getting some for my home. I think it’s so cool to have the colors change to suit your mood.
We have a GoogleHome and I am in love with it! My husband wants to start adding all of the gadgets like lighting that can work with it. He wants a full smart house eventually!
That is one nifty gadget there! Wow, it would make you feel high tech for sure!

This sounds like such a great addition to one’s home. I’m always trying to upgrade the features in my home. I love the look of this.
that’s awesome! i love all smart products. they make things easier and are so much fun to play with.
I want one of these so bad! I’ve been flip flopping back and forth between Google Home and Alexa which is why I haven’t actually taken the plunge yet though.
I’ve heard about this. I really need to pick one up–it sounds like it would be handy. I love the colors.
What will they think of next? My kids would have a blast with this! Me? I would want it because it never fails that I am in bed and need to get back up to turn lights off. Why is it this always happens.
My son would love that light in her room. Google Home is really something, it makes life at home a lot easier.
How fun! My husband and I have been oooking into getting one, so maybe! I love how quick this is to read! Also, I’m in love with your blog name! So cute and fun!
Google Home looks awesome. I would love to be up to date with all technology, but sadly I probably won’t get to own this. It does look and sound cool at everything it can do. Technology has come a long way.
I don’t know why I want this now but I do. I would have so much fun with this!
I want this so bad! I’ve been looking at upgrading so this partnership with Google Home and Phillips makes me so happy!
I got a Google Home at Mom 2.0. I still have to set it up! It looks so cool.

This is awesome! It is so cool that the color of the lights changes! Technology really makes our life amazing! 😀
Wow. Your post is really helpful. The lightings are cool. I need to check out Google home now.
This is so cool but I don’t think it would work out too well with my 4 year old haha. As soon as he could figure out that it does what he told it to he would never leave it alone. Thank you for the great review.
The different colors of lighting look super cool! Lighting can really change the mood of a room, so it’s important to set the right color!

I keep hearing about these lights everywhere! I really want to try them! I think they would be so much fun in our living room for parties!
My kids would have a blast with this! I love that you can change the hues of the lights. I have a light sensitivity and this would help a lot!
Wow! Such a wonderful way to control lighting in your home. I’d love to have this at home.
Unbelievable! I love how it has so many uses. This is not your grandma’s lamp. I need to check it out!
Loving the colors! I could see these being in my kids rooms, they’d love them.
i have really been thinking about getting a google home! Thank you for this great review of what you can do with it!
This is so cool! I bet my kids would Love this.
I have heard some great reviews for Google Home. will have to add it to my Birthday wish list. I would love to be able to change the color of the room to my mood.
OMG this is so cool! I’d love one in my home!
I recently saw Google Home on Display and thought it would be cool to have in my new home. I have not seen this new Philips product but will keep my eyes peeled.
I need this in my home! Or at least, in my new home when we move. The kids would have a blast with the controls!
The google home sounds like an amazing gadget that can help with so many things in life, although I think if I got it turning on lights it would eventually make me very idle!
This is awesome! However I think in our house, we’d never actually get light out of it, because we would be too busy taking turns bossing it around to see what happened. I wonder what type of family could leave it alone and let it just be a light? Certainly not mine.
This is so cool. I think it’s neat that you were able to customize it to different users, too. I would love to be able to dim my lights like this. So easy.
This is amazing. I love the different colors. The green would be perfect for Halloween.
Oh my gosh. The kids will totally love being able to change the hue of the room. I’m imagining a Sleeping Beauty “Make it Pink! Make it Blue!” scenario. So many options!
That is amazing…the fact that the bulb can change the color even without voice control is incredible. Adding the voice feature is unbelievable.
That is such a neat concept! And so easy to use. This would be fun to have, but also functional, especially considering how quickly you can change and adjust the colors.

Looks like an interesting products. The colors are really neat. Would be quite nice for a party!xx corinne
I have a Google Home, so I really should get these light bulbs! It would definitely be really convenient.
Kristen @ My 3 Little Kittens
My husband is ALL about LED lights. The fact this changes colours blew my mind! Love it!
I have an LED bulb in my living room that changes colors. I am a huge fan of LED lights in general.
I can only imagine how much my kids would enjoy this as a lighting option! I love to dim lights in our house, let alone change the colors…super fun!
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle
I really want to try this. I love the idea of being able to change the color of my lighting for different purposes.
My home is entirely black and white. This would seriously pop in my living room with its black floor and white walls and white furniture. Kind of tempted now…
Uhhhhh that seems like so much fun! I wuld play with that the whole day hahaha
I can’t wait to do this! My husband loves when there are choices in lighting. He’s a photographer and he sees all sorts of different light temperatures than anybody else. He would have a blast with something like this.
Hey that’s really cool! What a need idea. The colours are kind of fun. Thanks for writing!!
Sorry that should say NEAT idea.

Those colors are really neat. I would like that for our outside front door at Christmas time!
