Home automation right now is largely dependent on having a central “hub” to connect with all of your smart gadgets. Google Home can work as a hub, but at launch, it wasn’t compatible with a lot of smart devices. Today, Google Home added a pretty big smart ecosystem to the family of compatible devices.
Belkin’s popular WeMo brand of smart devices can now work with Google Home. This includes a variety of switches, outlets, light bulbs, and other gadgets. All you have to do is say “OK Google” and ask Google Home to turn on (or off) a WeMo device. The nice thing about WeMo is a lot of their products are very affordable. You can get a light switch for $45, or $30 if you own the Google Home.
