Smart devices are becoming more and more ubiquitous. Whether you're the owner of a smart lightbulb, smart outlet, security camera, or all of the above, managing your devices can get tricky, especially if you're amassing a collection.

If you're using a Google voice assistant, though, they're making it easy to add new smart toys to your existing home setup: one simple command that can get your voice assistant up to speed and keep your connected devices aware of one another.
