Philips Hue, LIFX and Eufy Lumi color change lamps let you set the mood of your home and Google Assistant lets you change them with voice. But you can also choose colors from the Google Home Hub touch screen. Like this.
We think Google Home Hub is a good device. From a place you can hear the news, play music, turn on and off your smart devices and see pictures of friends and family. In a pinch, it also makes a good cookbook and YouTube screen as well. Most of these functions rotate around voice commands, but you should not figure out the display. Your photos look great on it, but it's also a convenient control panel for controlling your smart home gadgets when it's noisy.
If you have color swapping lamps that are compatible with the Google homepage, they will now give you color options when choosing either light up the groups in a room or the individual lights themselves. However, there is a catch ̵
Once you have connected your smart lights and define which room they belong to, you get color options when working with them in the dashboard. If you have a Google home hub in the same physical location as smart lights, you should associate them with the same room in the Google Assistant App. Then, when you pull down on the Google Home Hub screen and press Space, the room where the hub is connected will automatically be selected and save some taps.
So your first step is to group your smart devices into rooms in the Google Assistant app that we've covered before. In the Google App, tap Add, then Set Device. Then select "Has something already configured?" And search for the service you want to connect (Philips Hue, SmartThings, etc.). Once you complete the connection of the service and your devices are detected, add them to the room when prompted.
To access your lights, swipe down from the top of the Google Home Hub screen. It helps to start just above the screen as you would with a smartphone to pull down the registration box.
Touch "Show Room" in the upper right corner. You can tap "all lights", but View Rooms will separate your lights by groups.
If your Google homepage is grouped in the same room as the lights you want to adjust, this room will already be selected. But if you want to check another room, tap it. Then press the lights you want to work with. Do not press the buttons on and off under the light list.
Now that your lights have been selected, you should have a color option. Touch it to change the color of your lights. If you just want to adjust a certain light, press the "X lights" (where X is the number of lights) and then the name of the light you want to adjust.
It's probably easier to use your voice to work with your lamps. But if you have a lot of background noise or Google doesn't seem to understand you today, this is a quick and easy option to change the colors of your lights.
