Everyone connected to your Wifi point(s) – on both the primary and guest Wi-Fi networks – can enter “On.Here” into any browser on a phone, tablet or computer and quickly see all of the devices that are available on the guest network. Philips Hue lights are the first connected home device that you can not only access, but control, directly from On.Here.

Finding available devices

Once connected to a Wifi point, enter “On.Here” into any web browser on your mobile device or computer. You’ll see a list of devices that are available for use. When a device is selected, you’ll either be able to control it within the browser (like with Philips Hue lights) or its companion app will open if installed on their mobile device.

Making devices available

On.Here will be automatically enabled for your main and guest networks (if setup).

To make devices available:

  1. Open the Google Wifi app.
  2. Tap the tab, then Home control.
  3. Under “Controllable devices”, set up any device that you’d like to make available.

You can also make devices available while setting up Guest Wi-Fi.


Why isn’t my device in the device list? /Why can’t I share my device?

Currently, not all devices are supported by Guest Wi-Fi. But we’re continually working to grow the list of compatible devices. Let us know which devices you would like to share.

Can I turn off On.Here?

No, On.Here is automatically enabled for both your main and guest networks. Only shared devices will appear on On.Here.

Are shared devices available on both my main and guest networks?

Yes. Shared device will appear on both the primary and guest networks (if set up).

Can I share my Philips Hue device from the Guest Network settings?

No. Go to the Home Control section in the settings menu to enable Philips Hue control.
