Linking up your Honeywell Smart Thermostat with Google Home and Google Assistant opens up a world of possibilities!
With Google Assistant integration, you can issue voice commands and with Google Home integration you can include the thermostat in various scenes and routines.
So, if you’re wondering how to set it up, read on to learn how.
Are All Honeywell Thermostats Compatible with Google Home?
Extensive compatability with their smart and Wi-Fi models
Most Honeywell thermostats, especially the smart models with Wi-Fi and mobile app compatibility can link up with Google Home.
So if you’ve got a Smart Thermostat or EvoHome setup that can be controlled via the Honeywell Home or Total Connect Comfort mobile apps, you’re in luck.
However, when setting up your thermostat with Google Home, you should verify if Google can control individual zones or only manage them as a single room within the app.
Because of this complexity, individual zones might not respond and you might have to group them together in Google Home.
