Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating announces an addition to its kumo cloud® platform that allows integration with Google Assistant. Our cooling and heating system controls are now available to be managed through voice activation via Google Home.

A leader in smart home automation, Google Assistant technology integrates with the kumo cloud app to provide homeowners control and access to their Mitsubishi Electric systems from anywhere they can access the internet, providing the ability to customize zone temperatures from the convenience of a cell phone, tablet, desktop and now with a Google Home device.

To activate, homeowners can use Google Assistant to access kumo cloud with voice prompts such as “Hey Google” or “OK Google” to do tasks such as check the temperature in a room, control vane directions, check humidity levels, adjust temperature and more.

kumo cloud with Google Assistant provides easy optimization of energy usage and comfort – such as turning off cooling and heating systems in unused rooms or setting individual temperature preferences in each family member’s room. The controller app is compatible with the latest generation of Mitsubishi Electric residential systems. A Mitsubishi Electric Wireless Interface is required for each indoor unit and initial setup requires a router and an internet connection. No additional kumo cloud app updates are needed for Google Assistant integration; so current kumo cloud owners will be able to connect their systems without needing an HVAC contractor.

“Mitsubishi Electric has long been a leader in technology,” says Charles Miltiades, director, controls products & solutions for Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc.’s Cooling & Heating Division. “This jump into voice-activated smart home automation with Google Assistant is an exciting next step. It truly helps take comfort to the next level.”

The kumo cloud app is compatible with iOS, Android and Fire OS devices. To learn more, visit www.mitsubishicomfort.com/kumocloud.
