Control Your Smart Home Hands Free

July 12, 2020

We all love when we find ways to make our lives simpler, especially when it comes to smart home automation. We now have another solution just for that! Our ELAN® 8.5 platform is now integrated with the Google Assistant. You have the power to choose how you want to control your smart home with our newest integration.

The actions on Google Assistant extend the elegant control and flexibility you and your customers have come to expect from Nice/ELAN with the sound of your own voice. Use the Google Assistant to voice control attached lighting, HVAC and door locks through the Google Home app and devices.

Some examples of how you can control your house with just the sound of your voice:

1. Set the mood

Getting ready for a movie night? Tell Google to turn on the TV, dim the lights, and turn on your popcorn maker. All that’s left is to sit back and relax.

2. Music anytime, anywhere

Having friends over? Tell Google to play your favorite playlist. Take it a step further and play the same songs in multiple audio zones so guests can hear it from all corners of your home.

3. Turn up the heat

Ask Google to adjust home, pool and spa temperatures.

While we encourage you to explore the capabilities of the Nice/ELAN system integrated with Google Assistant, it is important that the initial installation and set-up of an Nice/ELAN smart home system be done by our Certified Dealers. You will also need a dealer to turn on the Google Assistant app in the configurator so let them know if this is a feature that you’re interested in.
