Sesame Now Available as a Google Smart Home Device!

Good news, you can now link Sesame directly to your Google Home! If you have a Google Home device, you no longer have to rely on our Google Assistant action to link your Sesame to your Google Home. Instead, you can find Sesame directly in the "Home Control" section of your Google Home app!

First, make sure you are the owner of Sesame, have it linked to a Wi-Fi Access Point, and have Cloud Integration enabled (to do so, click on Sesame, go to Status, click on Change Settings, scroll down to Integration, and toggle it to ON.

Once you've done so, congratulations! You can now ask your Google Home to lock your Sesame or ask for the lock status. You can also change the nickname for your device, assign it to a room, or add it to a routine (currently US only).
