Google Home can do google search (Alexa can so bing search) and google translate. But GHome can't add events to google calendar or add reminders. Even Alexa can add events to google calendar (using ifttt). I already use voice to add reminders from my phone so I didn't even cross my mind that this feature wouldn't work. Really disappointing. Voice though, a lot smoother and understands better than Alexa. I sometimes start asking a question then rephrase the question (unintentional). Alexa tries to make sense of all the words and tells me she doesn't know how to help. Whereas Google, she eliminates unecessary words and actually get what I was trying to say. Pretty impressive. But again WHY... no GCalendar... Also, it's easier to turn your home to smart home with Alexa. I might update this once I try harder with Google home but so far, it appears I need some sort of a hub to connect devices to google home.
I just purchased this system and it works very well. It does what is says it will do. Cheaper than going out and buying ADT or what not. It alerts your cell phone if the alarm is triggered. I can see down the road adding cameras but right now I just want to be made aware if someone is coming inside my home through the backdoor or my kitchen window when I'm not there or asleep.The siren is pretty loud and sure to scare them away! After researching the company before buying and reading reviews. Looks like they have been around for awhile and have made some good improvements. Its nothing fancy but gets the job done.
My daughter is so happy to have this. It installed quickly and the customer service from Ring was fabulous. Took whatever time was needed to ensure my daughter could use it right away. I have peace of mind now because she has peace of mind.
