Welcome to Hive. With this action you can ask Google Assistant to control your connected Hive devices.
Using only your voice, you can control your Hive Active Thermostat, Lights and Plugs. To get started, simply enable the action, then follow the instructions to link your Hive account and sync your devices.
Here’s a handy list of commands you can use with Google Assistant and Hive to control your home:
Hive Active Thermostat
OK Google, set the living room to 68 degrees
OK Google, turn up the living room
OK Google, turn down the living room
OK Google, what’s the temperature in the living room?
OK Google, what’s the living room set to?
OK Google, turn on the bedroom
OK Google, turn off the bedroom
OK Google, brighten the bedroom
OK Google, dim the bedroom
OK Google, change the bedroom to pink
OK Google, change the bedroom to warm white
OK Google, turn on the coffee machine
OK Google, turn off the coffee machine
When using the action, you’ll need to specify the name of the device you want to control. You can easily rename devices in the Hive mobile app. Giving your devices a meaningful name, such as “Living Room” or “Kitchen” will work best with Google Assistant. If you do change the name of your device, remember ask Google to “sync devices” again.
In order to use Hive with Google Assistant, you’ll need:
- A Hive account with your username and password.
- Hive Hub or Hive Hub 360.
- One or more of the following Hive devices: Hive Active Thermostat, Hive Light or Hive Plug.
