How to Connect a Smart Plug to Google Home

Smart plugs are a great way to control your appliances or lights remotely. They allow you to turn on or off your devices using your smartphone or your voice. If you have a Google Home device, you can easily connect your smart plug to it and control your devices with your voice. In this article, we will show you how to connect a smart plug to Google Home.

The first thing you need to do is to make sure your smart plug is plugged in and flashing. Once it is flashing, you can use your phone to set it up. While the directions that come with the smart plug are for setting it up on Alexa, we will be setting it up on Google Home.

You will need to download an app called Smart Life from the App Store or Google Play Store. Although the directions suggest using a different app, we found that Smart Life works well. Once you have created an account, add a new device and confirm that it is flashing.

Next, enter your Wi-Fi password, and the smart plug will start searching for your network. Once it finds it, it will set up a connection. You can now name the smart plug according to its location.

Now, open the Google Home app and go to Home Control. Scroll down to the bottom and select Smart Life. You will need to authenticate your account, and once you do, you will see your smart plug in the list of devices.

You can now control your smart plug with your voice. For example, you can say “Hey Google, turn on the dining room,” and it will turn on the light connected to the smart plug.

In conclusion, setting up a smart plug with Google Home is easy and straightforward. By following these steps, you can control your devices using your voice, making your life more convenient.
