TP-LINK® ANNOUNCES GOOGLE ASSISTANT INTEGRATION FOR SMART HOME PRODUCTS

BREA, Calif. – Mar. 28, 2017 – TP-Link®, a leading global provider of consumer and business networking products, today announced that its entire family of smart home products are now compatible with the Google Assistant. With the integration of Google Assistant on Google Home, Google Pixel, and compatible Android phones, consumers may now easily control their TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi Bulbs, Smart Plugs and Smart Wi-Fi Switches with the sound of their voice.

“TP-Link’s smart home products bring simplicity to the modern smart home,” said Lewis Wu, executive vice president of TP-Link USA. “Through our integration with the Google Assistant on Google Home and Google Pixel, consumers are now able to use voice control to enhance their home automation.”

Google Assistant integration for Google Home and Google Pixel requires that the TP-Link Kasa App remote control function be enabled along with adding “TP-Link Kasa” for “Home Control” within the Google Home App. Once completed, users can control their TP-Link smart home devices via voice control by saying “Ok Google,”  “Hey Google” or “Hi Google,” followed by instructions and the name of the device. Enabled smart devices are named via the Kasa App. Google Assistant voice control provides the ability to switch smart devices on/off, or provide more detailed commands, including the ability to dim/brighten the lights or change the color of any color-enabled TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi Bulb. Current color name options for color-enabled TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi Bulbs include yellow, red, blue, purple, orange, green and pink.
