Control your smart home just by using your voice with the smart speaker from Google Home. Connect it to Olisto and you will be able to control and activate entire scenes, with just one voice command. Create any scene you want with Olisto & Google Home by using the Olisto Now Buttons.
For example; you want to create a scene which turns on your lights, set the thermostat to comfort and plays your Sonos playlist when you arrive home. Simply create a trigg with one or more ‘actions’ and a Olisto Now button as a ‘condition’. Then give your Now button a name, for example ‘Home’. It works best if you choose a name for your button that consists of 1 word.
From now on you can simply activate this scene by saying: “OK/ Hey Google, start ”home’”. Or start ‘Night’ by fading the lightning to 0% in 10 minutes, thermostat to 16 degrees, partially arm the alarm. You can also start ‘Safety’ when you leave your home by activating the alarm system + camera’s and switching off all smart plugs and lights.
