PRESS RELEASE

The Google Assistant enables Google Home users to interact with connected devices via voice control, providing a seamless smart home experience

London, Thursday, 17th August 2017 – Netatmo, a revolutionary smart home company developing groundbreaking, intuitive and beautifully-designed connected consumer electronics, announces today the compatibility of its Smart Thermostat with Google Home. This new integration showcases Netatmo’s ability to provide an intuitive and customisable Smart Home experience.

The Netatmo Smart Thermostat allows its owners to use 37% less energy on average to heat their home[1] thanks to its smart features and accurate analysis tools. 

Google Home, the hands-free smart speaker, is available for innovative companies to integrate. Powered by the Google Assistant, Google Home can find and share results from Google, manage everyday tasks, and control compatible smart devices. Users just need to start by saying ‘Ok Google”.

“Ok Google, turn up the temperature by 5 degrees”

With Google Home, users can simply ask the Google Assistant to change the temperature of the house (“Ok Google, set my Thermostat to 20 degrees”), to increase and decrease the temperature (“Ok Google, turn up the temperature by 5 degrees”), or ask what the temperature of your house is (“Ok Google, what’s the temperature inside?”).

We strongly believe in voice control as it provides new smart home services to our users, making their lives easier”, says Fred Potter, Founder and CEO of Netatmo. “Integrating Google Home enables our users to improve their comfort at home without lifting a finger: just with their voice, they know what the temperature in their house is and can increase or decrease it.”

The Netatmo Smart Thermostat allows owners to use 37% less energy on average to heat their home. It allows users to control their heating from their smartphone, tablet or PC. The Netatmo Thermostat sets a program to reflect the users’ habits. For optimal comfort, it predicts the start of the heating periods depending on the household insulation and the outside temperature. 

Price and availability

The Thermostat is available at the recommended retail price of £149 at major retailers such as John Lewis, Maplin, Currys, Argos and Amazon, as well as netatmo.com.

The Thermostat is also available through professionals such as Plumb Centre, CEF and Grahams.

Google Home retails for £129 and is available at Google Store, Currys, Argos, John Lewis, Maplin and EE.
