Google Home and Google Assistant

Why connect with The Google Assistant (Google Home)?

Connecting your LIFX lights to The Google Assistant will allow you use voice commands to control your LIFX lights with your Google Home, Pixel and more.

NEW Google Sync

Google has recently added a "Sync my lights" command. This allows you to add new lights, without going through the process below, from scratch. You can simply ask "OK, Google, Sync my lights", as long as the account is already setup, new lights you add, will be easily added to voice control.

How do I get started?

  1. First, make sure that your lights are connected to your LIFX cloud account
  2. Ensure that you have the Google Home app on your device and a Google Home account set up.

  3. Now let’s link the accounts by opening the Google Home app and clicking on the ‘+’ Add  button, then “Set up device” and “Works with Google” 

  4. Search for LIFX in the list of devices and tap on “LIFX”

  5. Enter your LIFX cloud email and password (the same as what you use in the LIFX app)

  6. Your devices will now appear in the Google Home app! It’s time to start telling The Google Assistant to control your lights!
  7. For even greater control tap on the ‘ROOMS’ tab to great Rooms (Groups) for your Google Home to control groups of your lights.

  8. To assign lights to rooms tap ‘Assign Room’ then the pencil next to a light.

  9. Simply select the room you want the light in and click back to repeat for all your lights.

  10. You’re all set! You can now control your LIFX lights and rooms using Google Home or The Google Assistant!
