Looking to venture into the world of home automation? Then getting a voice assistant is a great first step. There’s currently 3 different home assistants available in Canada: Google Assistant (via Google Home), Siri (via Apple HomePod), and Alexa (via Amazon Echo).
Walmart, as well as various other retailers, are having an amazing sale right now on Google Home devices. They’ve brought back Black Friday pricing!
Both devices will let you speak with Google Assistant to ask it various questions (just like a regular Google Search). Additionally, you’ll be able to control wifi enabled home devices such as switches, power outlets, and thermostats.
They’re also often used to play music, set timers/reminders/alarms, and also make phone calls.
