Google may have launched Google Home a few weeks now, but we probably have not realized what it can do. One of the first highly inventive applications was invented by Redditor Hovee, who uses Google Home to remotely ignite his fireplace.
Unfortunately, it is not that easy for everyone who is interested.
For starters, you'll need a processor Raspberry Pi, one Global Cache iTach TCP / IP relay, and Google Assistant connected to one IFTTT account. In addition to this, you need to equip the Raspberry Pi processor with it Home Assistant, and you'll need to install some extra custom scripts and a few more ingredients to help you with the settings.
Once this is done, all you have to do is say the magic phrase "OK, Google" and the device in your home will ask the new Assistant AI to light the fireplace.
For those interested in the construction of the device, Hovee has published detailed instructions for the project in Reddit.
See how it works in the video below.
