It is possible to control Gladys devices with Google Home using Gladys Plus, our online gateway service.
Google Home is a unique integration, because Google Home works exclusively in the cloud. This means we have very limited control over what we can and can't do (unfortunately).
To become a Google Home partner, we had to:
- Pass some automated unit tests on Google side
- Pass a manual review from Google team
- Complete a Google Home Certification process
This is not a simple process, and therefore it's not realistic for all our users go through it on their side. It is a process that is intended for professionals & companies, hence why we offer this integration in Gladys Plus, exclusively.
