Why is Google Home able to turn on/off the light named “recessed” in the room named “living room” from a routine, but with voice commands it says it doesn’t understand or it needs to be setup?
The activity page shows that it did understand the correct words. I tried renaming both switch and room, but it didn’t help.
Here is a few details.
Two weeks ago I added the first smart switch to SmartThings and linked it to Google Home. It worked well until today, with both voice commands and routines.
Today I added one more smart switch, assigned it to the living room both in SmartThings and in Google Home, renamed both switches in both SmartThings and Google Home, and now Google Home doesn’t recognize neither switch.
I unlinked and re linked the SmartThings hub, but nothing changed.
I checked the routine, I noticed that it had lost the name of the switch, so I added both the switches.
Now the routine is able to turn both the switches on and off, but the voice commands can’t. Here is the content of the last two voice commands directly from the activity page:
Said turn on all the lights in the living room
It looks like those lights haven’t been set up yet. Just open the Google Home app and go to Home Control to add lights.
Said turn on the recessed lights
Sorry, I don’t understand.
