Home Automation with Android Things and the Google Assistant

Android Developer at Innovorder

Smart lights are fun, but have you ever wondered how it works under the hood, when you say to your Google Home something like: “OK Google, turn on the lights”? Could we just buy some colored LED bulbs for $10, and create our own home automation system, compatible with the Google Assistant? That’s what we will see today, first doing some slight reverse-engineering to understand how those light bulbs work, and then creating an Android Things and an Actions on Google project to control those. This talk is a way to discover “Actions on Google”, “Google Cloud Functions”, “Firebase Cloud Firestore” and “Android Things”

Audience: Beginner-Intermediate
