Your Wiser home, your smarter home
Smart speakers like Google Home are making our homes smarter than ever.
Use voice commands to check the status of and make changes to your Wiser system with the help of the Google Assistant, whether it’s checking what temperature is currently set in the bedroom, turning off the hot water, or turning on the coffee maker.
