What to watch for as Google launches its smart home line-up
The company announced the intelligent home line up today, featuring smart devices that can control and automate their own lighting, thermostat, air conditioning and more.
They will debut in the first quarter of 2018 and are aimed at home owners and business owners who want to manage and automate things like air conditioning, heating and more, as well as to the home office worker who wants to keep an eye on all their digital appliances and smart home technology.
Google has been developing smart home devices for several years, including a smart doorbell, smart light bulbs, and a smart thermostatic controller.
Its smart doorbot and smart light bulb products will start rolling out in the second quarter.
