Google Home and Smartthings Room Not Working


(James “Jakobe” Freisinger) #1

I have three lights in my kitchen: Dining light, Island light, and Ambient light.

In the Smartthings App I have created a room called “Kitchen” and added the three lights listed above to it.

When i say “Hey Google, turn on Dining light”, the dining light turns on. This works for the other two as well.

However when i say “Hey Google, turn on Kitchen” or “Hey Google, turn on everything in Kitchen” it does not work. I am met with this device has not been set up.

How do you “turn on” rooms created in smartthings with Google Home?


You have to create a room in the google assistant app. Rooms don’t translate over from SmartThings to Google Home.
