How about the hub? With screen
Nest Hub $109/Max $296
Dang, was hoping for a better price than that..
I also want a new version of the Google Nest hub (non-max) I wonder if anythings in the works?
I want Netflix/Prime video oob.
Netflix and Disney work currently. Haven't tried amazon
are you casting or using the netflix app? and are you on the Max?
@equinoxxx: casting and voice works, ie 'hey google play XXX on netflix'
Normal home hub, not max.
You may or may not have to link services.
Also foxtel GO I linked last night, haven't tested yet though.
I find them to have slight hearing issues.I often have to bark command especially when songsare being played.
You can adjust the sensitivity of the 'ok google' recognition. This might help the device out.
I got this set to highest on the google home and normal on the google nest and I found the nest can pickup much better.
Curious, and good to know. I only have nest and home minis, not this particular product.
Same problem, having to yell three times, after asking once, to get the device to respond becomes very frustrating very quickly.
wait for the new nest…apparently blows this one out of the water
Not to mention the one after that!
Normally i'd agree with this sentiment chris, but the new Nest Audio is already on sale (or preorder, can't remember), so it's not a wait and see scenario.
Is anyone using the Smart Clock with homeassistant?
Yes - integrates just like Google Home speaker.
What do you need to know?
Can you do anything with the screen, like cast the home assistant dashboard?
When you ask it to turn on lights does it show the google home type interface?
No, its a cutdown interface so you cant cast to it, but you do get photos, some weather on the default screen, and things like countdown timer display.
Yeah, display is pretty basic, and although there is a Streaming Hack it is not really practical implementation.
Also, when I ask it to turn the (Lifx) lights ON/OFF or dim, display does show light graphic with % and ability to adjust.
But honestly, I only use it to issue Google assistant commands while in bedroom (lights, shutter, weather, radio, shopping list, "good morning" and "good night" routines), clock, alarm, radio in a morning. Speaker is tinny, but good enough for news and announcements. Display dimming at night is brilliant and non-distracting. Bonus points for NTP sync and no need to re-adjust after power failure or Daylight Savings :)
If you are after casting device (sound/video), best to look elsewhere, but for what it is (clock/alarm/weather/radio) - it's great. I'm looking to buy another one for my son's bedroom.
For Homeassistant display, I use my old Nexus 7" tablet.
@WalterBiH: Hi, do you have info on how to turn the nexus 7 into a HA display?
@pipebritop: Just using standard HA app from Google Play.
There are other app options, but I like the official one the best. There are plenty of skins/themes made by users (just google) but I'm just using stock standard. Sorry, I'm bit old fashioned and boring ;)
@pipebritop: You need HA to open up to WWW
Then use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.homeassista...
If you don't set it up correctly, your neighbors can see you naked ;)
@WalterBiH: Do you know of any similar products but with better sound?
Yep, using it too and love it. Perfect bedside clock with google assistant and some basic touchscreen functionality for lights/alarm clock. I dont use it for music, but its good enough for my basic listening needs.
Is it possible to setup more than 1 daily alarm?
Yes. It's also got a 'nap timer' which sets an alarm/timer for 20 minutes.
Best and cleanest way to achieve this by following this. It's a big setup, enjoy.
Or just get a android phone / tablet / iPad and access the HA with HA app as these products are not design for this purpose.
I already have tablets mounted on the wall with HA but for the bedroom I think this is a much better form factor. Even if you could control the text below the clock it would be handy.
well your only option is to integrate google with HA,
then its all voice commands, f#k the touch screen.
I hardly use touch screen, everything works on voice commands, or automations.
Mounted screens are only good for show off with pretty pictures.
Looks like the Google Home's already out of stock.

No apple watches? :(
Which is the better smart clock? Much differences?
Check on YouTube ? Few reviews there
Managed to score 1 before it went out.
My last two Good Guys orders took three weeks to arrive. My third is at three weeks currently and I just got a text telling me there will be further delays.
Meanwhile orders from overseas are taking as little as ten days. Can't say I'm over the moon with GG.
