The “Google Home” application is getting better and better. Now with the automatisms, the application can finally be an App for daily use in the automation of your smart home.
The new feature makes this application relevant again compared to all others. With the new feature, you can give Google permission to know when you’re at home by locating your smartphone.
How the new feature of the Google Home application works
According to the information, after giving your smartphone permission to give access to the location of the application, the Google Home App can start tasks when you are not at home automatically.
For example, whenever I left home I say to my Google Home ” Hey Google I’m leaving home “. This causes Google to start a “routine” that I pre-defined.
The lights go out, utensils and gadgets connected to a smart outlet are turned off. Only 3-night lights and safety cameras are switched on. All of this with a simple sentence.
When I get home I say ” Ok Google I’m home” and another routine starts. The night lights are turned off and the lights of the rooms I use the most are switched on. Consequently, inner cameras stop recording.
With the new functionality, I won’t even need to say that phrase. By giving me access to my smartphone’s location, Google will know when I’m not at home and will be able to automate this type of action.
This feature is compatible with more smartphones. That is, you can leave the house, however, the rest of the family is at home and you do not want this automation to be activated.
The new update is still in the experimental stage, however, it should not be long until it reaches our equipment. If you are a lover of IoT and smart homes, I know you will be as happy as I am to see this news.
