Philips Hue, LIFX and Eufy Lumos color change lamps let you set the mood in your home and with Google Assistant you can change it with your voice. You can also select colors from the Google Home Hub touchscreen. That's how it's done.
We think the Google Home Hub is a great device. From one place, you can hear the news, play music, turn your smart devices on and off, and see pictures of friends and family. If necessary, it also makes a great cookbook and YouTube display. Most of these features are for voice commands, but you should not count the ad. Your photos look great, but it's also a convenient touch-control panel to control your smarthome gadgets when it's noisy.
If you have color lights compatible with Google Home Hub, you now have the Color Options option either the lights that are grouped in a room, or the individual lights themselves. However, there is a catch: you need your lights with a room to see them on the dashboard at all.
Once you've connected your Smart Lights and defined which room they belong to, you'll get color options when you work with them in the Dashboard. If a Google Home Hub is in the same physical location as Smart Lights, you should map it to the same room in the Google Assistant app. Then, when you pull down on the Google Home Hub screen and tap Rooms, the room to which the Hub is assigned is automatically selected and some taps are saved.
The first step is to put your smart devices in rooms in the Google Assistant app that we've already covered. On the Google app, tap Add, then tap Set up device. Then select "Have you already set something up?" And search for the service you want to connect (Philips Hue, SmartThings, etc.). If you have connected to the service and your devices have been discovered, add them to the rooms when prompted.
Swipe down from the top of the Google Home Hub screen to access your lights. It's helpful to start just above the screen, like on a smartphone, to pull down the notification area.
Tap "View Rooms" In the upper right corner You can tap All Lights, but View Rooms splits your lights by groups.
If your Google Home Hub is in the same room as the lights you want to set, this room is already selected, but if you want to control another room, tap Then, tap the lights you want to work with. Do not touch the power buttons below the lights list.
Now that your lights have been selected, you'll be picked should have a color option, tap it to change the color of your lights, if you just want to set a specific light, tap the "X-light r "(where X is the number of lights) and then the name of the light you want to adjust.
Using your voice to work with your lights is probably easier most of the time. However, if you have a lot of background noise or Google just does not seem to understand you today, you can change the colors of your lights quickly and easily.
