This Smart Light Starter Kit from Google is ideal for anyone looking to get their smart home started. You'll get a voice-activated assistant AND a smart LED bulb from GE - dim, brighten and switch your light on or off using only your voice. Of course, you can control much more than the GE bulb using the Google Home Mini. There are 100s of compatible smart home manufacturers and the list only continues to grow. The Google Smart Light Starter Kit is also great for anyone sharing a home or apartment with others - get a voice-assistant and smart bulb for your single room.

Product Information

  • A match made in heaven: The Google Smart Light Starter Kit combines two products that were born to be used together. The starter pack lets you control the GE C-Life LED Bulb entirely using your voice - switch your light on/off without having to get out of bed.
  • Your little helper: There are simply so many ways that the Google Home Mini makes your life easier. You can ask it for general information, use it as your personal organizer, or have it be your own personal DJ (thanks to compatibility with Spotify and TuneIn).
  • Right where you need it: The GE C-Life Bulb and the Google Home Mini connect with each other over Bluetooth, allowing you to place the bulb over 15 ft. away from the voice-activated assistant.
  • Smart home made easy: You can use the Google Home Mini to control a lot more than just the smart bulb. Google is compatible with a whole range of smart home designers - control your home security, smart heating or smart entertainment.
  • Google Home App: Google has designed an app that makes it simple to use their smart speaker. See all available commands, tips on how to get the most out of your device, or what other smart devices you can integrate into the Google Home Mini.

Now we can set up our GE smart LED:
