Fibaro Home Center 3 Lite

Google home & Alexa

In addition to the traditional way of operating, a Smart Home system must also be able to be controlled with your voice. You can create a link with Google Home and Alexa for this. We don't have Alexa at our disposal, so we can't test it, so we test it with the GH.

To test this we use a GH mini gene2. You can of course also use the other products from Google, such as the Hub. The nice thing about the mini is that it can be bought for around 50 euros, which makes it a cheap addition.


Install/link Google Home:
We start with the installation by opening the Google Home app on our phone and following the steps below:

  1. Press the plus sign.
  2. Go to the "Set up device" section.
  3. And choose the bottom option "I have already installed something".
  4. Then search for FIBARO Smart Home
  5. You will then be asked to log in with the Fibaro Home ID.

Now the GH is linked to the HC3 and I can also see my devices on the start screen.

Such a link is very nice, but what exactly can we do?

We can ask the GH for the following things:

"Hey Google ..."
Switch on lamp x
Turn off lamp x
Set lamp x to a specific color

"Hey Google ..."
What is the temperature in room x
Is the door x open?

"Hey Google ..."
Start scene x
