How to connect Hubitat Elevation to Google Home and Google Assistant

Your Hubitat Elevation integrates easily with Google Home using the Google Home app on your mobile phone, and the Google Home app in your Hubitat Elevation hub. Google Home supports switches, dimmers, thermostats, RGB, RGBW and ColorTemperature bulbs.

NOTE: This integration allows Google Home to control switches, dimmers, thermostats, RGB, RGBW and ColorTemperature bulbs that have been joined to your Hubitat Elevation hub, but the reverse is not possible. Devices that have been added directly to Google Home or Google Assistant cannot be shared with your Hubitat Elevation hub.
