Google, along with other tech giants like Apple and Amazon, have expanded to many home automation products in recent years. They now have a product called Google Home. What is it? According to Home Alarm Report,
“Google Home is an internet-connected speaker with a virtual voice assistant. Google Home also functions as an assistant via Google Assistant, an evolved version of Google now with the ability to engage in contextual conversations. “
In a nutshell, Google Home is another smart speaker. It functions like a smart speaker would with the user giving commands and it complying to each one. How can Google Home be helpful to working with the doorbell camera? Brinks Home™’s SkyBell video doorbell is Google Home compatible.
