Google Assistant

  • Hey Google, turn on the front porch lights.

  • Hey Google, turn off all lights.

Google Smart Home API

The abode Integration uses the Google Smart Home API.  The Google Team has assured us that the Smart Home API will continue to mature and that this was where we should start with our Google Integration.   Our current version will allow you to control lights, switches, and dimmers connected to your abode System via Google Assistant.  We will continue to update the abode Integration as Google adds more functionality to the Smart Home API.
