How to set up your Airthings device with Google Assistant:
Use Google Assistant to tell you about the air quality in your home! It is compatible with the Wave, Wave Plus, or Wave Mini, and is currently available in English. Follow these five simple steps to get started:
- First make sure that you have set up you Airthings monitors successfully according to the user manuals. You should normally see your first measurement readings in the Airthings app 1 hour after set-up.
- Make sure your Google Home device is fully set up if you are using one. The instructions can be found here.
- In order to link your Airthings account to the Google Account, say “Hey Google, talk to Airthings”. You can do this verbally by speaking to Google Assistant, or it may be necessary to type a written command to Google Assistant for the initial setup. It is normal for the Assistant to take a few tries to grow accustomed to you saying "Airthings". See below where you can type the command to Google Assistant with the Google Home app:
4. The Google Home device or Assistant will then ask if you want to authenticate. To do so, use the Google Home app and follow the on-screen instructions to log in to your Airthings account.
5. Now that you are set up, simply say “Hey Google” and pick a question below to get the answer!
Example Questions for Google Assistant:
The general command is: “Check the VOC/CO2/Radon/Humidity/Temperature/Air quality in [insert room name]”
- “Check the VOC levels in living room”
- “Check the CO2 in bedroom”
- “Check the radon in basement”
- “Check the humidity in kitchen”
- “Check the temperature in baby's room”
- “List my rooms”
For optimal functionality, this integration works best with monitors that are connected to an Airthings Hub! The Hub keeps your monitors' measurement data updated without the need for Bluetooth syncing.
Here is a short video showing how the integration looks when you're fully set up:
