Imagine coming home to a house that not only knows you but understands your needs, automates your tasks, and even facilitates your entertainment – that’s the magic of a Google smart home. Google’s connected home ecosystem brings together a plethora of devices under the convenience of a single app. As of 2023, here’s Mission Audio Visuals ultimate guide to setting up a Google smart home that is futuristic, functional, and simply phenomenal.
1. Google Nest Hub
The Google Nest Hub is the command center of your Google smart home. This smart display provides visual feedback from Google Assistant, controls smart home devices, plays your favorite media, and can even track your sleep with its Soli radar technology. Its ambient EQ light sensor adjusts the screen brightness and color based on the time of the day, ensuring an optimal visual experience.
2. Google Nest Learning Thermostat
Google Nest Learning Thermostat Regulates your home’s temperature efficiently with Google assistant. It learns your temperature preferences over time and adjusts accordingly, ensuring both comfort and energy efficiency. It even senses when you’re away, adjusting the temperature to save energy and therefore, money on your power bill.
3. Google Nest Mini
Spread throughout the house, the Nest Mini acts as satellites for the Google Assistant. This enables voice commands throughout your house without needing to be near the Nest Hub. They can also function as a home intercom system, broadcast messages, and play synchronized music throughout the house.
4. Google Nest Wi-Fi
A smart home is only as good as its Wi-Fi. Google Nest Wi-Fi not only provides seamless internet coverage throughout your home but also doubles as a Google Assistant speaker, thereby enhancing its functionality.
5. Google Nest Doorbell (Battery)
Security is a critical aspect of a smart home. The Google Nest Doorbell (Battery) provides visitor alerts, detects packages, and even recognizes familiar faces. It works round the clock, giving you a live view of what’s happening outside your front door at any given moment.
6. Google Nest Cam (Battery)
The Google Nest Cam (Battery) offers indoor and outdoor surveillance. These cameras use AI to differentiate between people, animals, and vehicles, sending relevant notifications to your device. They can also identify familiar faces, and you can view footage in real-time or retrospectively with a Nest Aware subscription.
7. Google Nest Yale Lock
The Google Nest Yale Lock gives you keyless entry and remote locking/unlocking via the Google Home app. You can grant temporary access to guests and receive alerts when someone locks or unlocks the door. Plus, it’s tamper-proof, giving you an extra layer of security.
8. Google Nest Protect
The Google Nest Protect is a smart smoke and CO alarm that sends alerts to your phone, informs you of what and where the danger is, and can be silenced from your phone. Its industrial-grade smoke sensor tests itself automatically and lasts up to a decade.
9. Google Chromecast with Google TV
For entertainment, the Chromecast with Google TV lets you stream your favorite content in 4K HDR. It aggregates content from different apps, gives personalized recommendations, and can be voice-controlled via Google Assistant.
10. Nest x Yale Lock
For an added layer of security, the Nest x Yale Lock provides keyless entry to your home. You can lock and unlock your door from anywhere, give passcodes to guests, and get alerts whenever someone locks or unlocks the door.
