Smart thermostats have been integrated with other smart home devices for a while now. But with more and more companies entering the smart home market, it’s only natural to see products like the Amazon Echo and Google Home allow users to control them using their devices.
Back in January, it was announced that Google added Honeywell as a partner. Last week, it was announced that both of the Honeywell’s connected thermostat families, the Lyric and Total Connected Comfort will now be integrated with Google Home. Now, consumers who own a Google Home can use a few simple words, like “OK, Google …” to adjust their home’s temperature and comfort.
In addition to Google Home voice control, users can also control their Honeywell thermostats using a number of different commands with Google Assistant on Android devices. And if a home has multiple heating or cooling zones, it is possible to control them independently by informing Google Home which thermostat corresponds to a specific zone.
