How to Connect Ring Doorbell to Google Home

When securing and monitoring your property, nothing does a better job than the modern smart devices that have begun being used all around. In addition, smart devices such as speakers allow you to control other smart devices such as thermostats and lighting.

In this context, doorbells are no compromise. Smart doorbells have gained momentum over the past decade and have been popularized by Google’s Nest and Amazon’s Ring lineup. The Amazon Ring doorbell, for instance, is primarily designed to integrate seamlessly with Alexa, Amazon’s voice assistant. While there is limited direct support for interaction with Google Assistant, users primarily manage Ring devices through the Alexa platform for comprehensive functionality.

However, Google has not gone out of its way to enable compatibility with other smart devices because it makes its own. As of my last update, direct control of Ring Doorbell via Google Assistant or Google Home speakers is not fully supported, with native integration primarily optimized for Alexa devices.

Google Home and Ring doorbell work together, and you can control some aspects of the Doorbell using Google Assistant. So, let’s look at how the Doorbell connects to Google Home.
