LightwaveRF PLC (LON:LWRF) shares flashed higher on Monday after the smart lights maker teamed up with US tech giant Google.

The pair – one of which is worth £8mln and the other almost £600mln – have signed an agreement which allows Lightwave to sell Google’s Mini and Nest Hub smart speakers as a bundle with its own voice-controlled lights and sockets.

They will also work together to show customers how the products can be used together to manage everything from power to heating in the home.

“The contract with Google demonstrates a commitment from both sides to make it easy for customers to select and buy great products that work seamlessly together to create a fantastic experience,” said LightwaveRF chief executive Jason Elliott.

“The partnership also further reinforces Lightwave's position as the brand that offers the most convenient and affordable installed Smart Lighting solution available on the market.”

Lightwave shares were up 15.3% to 7.4p early on Monday morning.
