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!
|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!!
