In the new age of technology, everything can be controlled at the touch of a button or the uttering of a request to an in-home assistant. Gone are the days where you need to stand up to turn on lights or whip out your laptop to conduct a Google search.
Welcome to the Smart generation where technology is capable of much more than you may realise. A Google Home device helps you to manage your daily tasks from reading out your schedule through to providing real time updates of how long it will take to get to your place of work. As your Google Home learns about you, it will draw together daily news and communications to keep you in the loop.
While a Google Home device will play you music or answer your questions and tackle daily tasks, you may be interested to know many other features it includes. Here’s how to make the most of your Google Home.
Firstly, check out the Google Home Assistant and other smart home devices from Harvey Norman. You may not be familiar with the concept of a smart fridge or a smart pet food bowl but rest assured there is a whole market of helpful devices out there just like them.
A number of these smart devices are compatible with your Google Home. With a simple request, you can switch lights, on and off, start up your vacuum cleaner and so much more.
You can use your Google Home to broadcast footage from security cameras in your home onto your TV. With a compatible security camera such as the Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera and a simple request along the lines of “Ok Google, What’s on [camera name]?” you can view the live stream of these security cameras in your own living room.

This also can be used in conjunction with the Google Home for example “Ok Google, Talk to Ring about the last time my Doorbell rang.”
Take your home into the new age of the Smart Generation with ease thanks to the range available in the market today.
