Lutron syncs your lights up with Google Assistant



Lutron's smart switches already let you turn things on and off by talking to Siri or Alexa, but today, the brand is going for the voice control trifecta by adding in support for Google Assistant. That'll let you turn your smart lights on and off using voice commands with the Google Homesmart speaker, the Google Pixelphone or select other Android phones and Android Wear devices.

"Lutron has made it a point to work with leading brands," Lutron executive Neil Orchowski said. "From a voice control perspective, the Google Assistant was a no-brainer."

The new integration will function much like the existing integrations with Siri and Alexa. Starting today, Lutron Caseta Wireless customers will be able to ask the Google Assistant to turn individual lights or groups of lights on and off, or to dim or brighten them.
