How to Control Lights with Google Home

Use the Google Home app touch and hold the light you want . You'll find controls for brightness. If your bulb has color options, you'll also find color controls.

Smart homes are becoming increasingly popular, and with good reason. Being able to control your lights, appliances, and other devices with voice commands is not only convenient, but it can also save you time and money. In this article, we will show you how to quickly add a smart light or a smart plug to your Google Home if you’ve already linked a specific partner account.

First, you need to go to the partner application and set up that light or a smart switch. In this example, we are using a new Singh LED smart colored light. Once you’ve set up the light or switch, you can easily turn it on and off from the application. The next step is to add the light or switch to your Google Home.

To do this, open the Google Home app and go to the home control settings. Here you can add a new light or smart plug very easily by syncing your devices. There are two commands you can use to sync your devices: “sync my lights” and “sync my devices.” Once you’ve synced your devices, you can use voice commands to control your smart devices.

One important thing to keep in mind when naming your devices is to stay away from any numbers, special characters, or names that are the same as a room. For example, if you have a light in your office, don’t name it “office light one.” Instead, give it a specific name like “desk light.” This will help avoid confusion when using voice commands.

Depending on the light that you have, you will be able to change the color and brightness using voice commands. For example, you can say “set the brightness on new colored to 5%” or “set the new colored light to 100%.”
