How do I connect my Carrier Infinity thermostat to Google home?

Answered by Robert Dupre

To connect your Carrier Infinity thermostat to Google Home, you will need to follow a few simple steps. Please note that this process may vary slightly depending on your specific thermostat model and the version of the Google Home app you are using.

1. Open the Google Home app on your mobile device. If you don’t have the app installed, you can download it from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

2. Tap the menu button in the top left corner of the screen. This is usually represented by three horizontal lines.

3. From the menu options, tap on “Home Control.” This will take you to the section of the app where you can add and manage your connected devices.

4. In the bottom right corner of the screen, you will see a “+” sign. Tap on it to add a new device.

5. On the next screen, you will be presented with a list of supported providers. Carrier Infinity thermostats are not directly supported by Google Home, so you will need to use a third-party integration service called “SmartThings” to connect your thermostat.

6. Tap on “SmartThings” from the list of providers. If you haven’t set up SmartThings yet, you will need to do so before proceeding. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up your SmartThings account and connect it to your Carrier Infinity thermostat.

7. Once you have set up SmartThings, you will be prompted to sign in with your SmartThings account credentials. Enter your username and password and tap “Sign In.”

8. After signing in, you will see a list of devices that are compatible with SmartThings. Scroll through the list to find your Carrier Infinity thermostat. Tap on it to select it.

9. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup process. This may involve authorizing the connection between SmartThings and Google Home and granting permission for the app to access your thermostat.

10. Once the setup process is complete, you should see a confirmation message indicating that your Carrier Infinity thermostat has been successfully connected to Google Home. You can now control your thermostat using voice commands or the Google Home app.

It’s worth noting that the specific steps may vary slightly depending on the version of the Google Home app and the SmartThings integration. If you encounter any issues during the setup process, I recommend consulting the user manual for your thermostat or reaching out to Carrier’s customer support for assistance.

I hope this guide helps you connect your Carrier Infinity thermostat to Google Home. Enjoy the convenience of controlling your thermostat with voice commands and the Google Home app!
