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 Heating, 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 Heating
OK Google, set the living room to 20 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 hot water.
OK Google, turn off hot water.
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
Hive light groups created in the Hive app can be controlled in the same way as other lights with Google Assistant.
OK Google, turn on the coffee machine
OK Google, turn off the coffee machine
Quick Actions (Scenes)
Quick Actions created in the Hive app can be controlled with Google Assistant. You’ll find them on the Scenes tab of the Home Control section in the Google Assistant app.
OK Google, turn on boost everywhere (where your Quick Action is named “boost everywhere”)
OK Google, activate bedtime (where your Quick Action is named “bedtime”)
OK Google, start movie time (where your Quick Action is named “movie time”)
When using the action, you’ll need to specify the name of the device, group or quick action (scene) you want to control. You can easily rename these in the Hive app. Using simple names, such as “Living Room” or “Kitchen”, will work best with Google Assistant. If you make any changes, remember to ask Google to “sync devices”.
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 Heating, Hive Light or Hive Plug.
