“OK Google, what is the temperature in Mixergy tank?”

 

“Mixergy tank is set to 50 degrees”

 

You speak and Google listens… and you spoke and we listened! That’s right, we have now expanded our voice control range to now include the capability to control your Mixergy tank with Google Assistant.

Google Assistant within Google Home, forms the foundation of smart home control, offering the use of voice commands, voice searching and voice-activated device control to complete a huge number of tasks or control various devices within your home set-up. You can use it to send messages, play a certain song, check on the weather, find out how long your journey to work is going to take you today, set a timer whilst cooking dinner… the list is endless.

We are hugely excited to share that controlling your Mixergy tank is now on this list.

Whether you are asking via your smart phone, smart speaker or smart watch, Google is there and ready for when you need it.
