Can I water my garden with Google Home or Google Assistant?

I love that my google home device is connected to my Spotify account. It’s still a novelty using those magic words “Hey Google!, play Keith Urban” and instantly having my wish granted.

So can Google water my garden? Well, popular irrigation brands such as Rainbird and Orbit claim that it is possible on some of the controllers in their ranges along with some smaller brands that are popping up claiming the same thing.

So this summer I will be putting some of these claims to the test to see how seamless this connectivity is.

As an irrigation supply and installation company, I can see the importance of getting a deep understanding of this topic. Over the coming years, I  envisage that connectivity into customers chosen “Home Assistant” will be one of the number 1 priorities when it comes to automated irrigation at home.

I am also extremely interested in other technologies we need to research so we can offer turnkey automated garden solutions.

Along with irrigation can Google?

-Operate garden lighting (The answer to this is yes by the way)

-Open/close chook pens

-Operating robotic mowers

-Opening/shutting gates

-Monitoring ponds and tank

This is where I will be spending my time over the next 12 months. Coming up with a way Ecostream can offer automated garden solutions across the Mornington Peninsula.
