Color Options for Google Home control of your smart device:
Did you know you can even use the Google Assistant on your phone to use voice commands? Once your WiFi Smart Bulbs are set up with your Google Home then you have the option to use the Google Assistant app on your phone to control your smart bulbs anywhere! For example, if you left your house for the evening and wanted to check to see if you left your lights on, simply ask "Hey Google, is the kitchen light on?".
This can also come in handy when on vacation but don't want people to know you've left. Just ask the Google Assistant to turn your bulbs on and off at random times. You can even set timers while away to automatically turn your lights on and off at specific times.
