In The SmartThings app under automation I have checkmarked which lights I would like to turn on and turn off under the Good Morning and Good Night routines. Made sure I tapped Done/save where I am supposed to. I’m even greeted with a congratulation you have added lights bla bla blaa…
The lights don’t turn on/off, though. I must have missed something but I don’t know what.
I did change which news source successfully before.
I tried rebooting the Google Home and the SmartThings hub without luck.
I do have a combination of G.E. and Cree Bulbs if that makes a difference. It’s probably still a PIBKAC with my luck.
Sorry, I’m talking about the voice command to Google Home. I’ll say Good Morning and the GH will tell me time, temp, weather, etc. All the items in the Good Morning list of routines. Not the lights though.
At the present time, echo can run a SmartThings routine. Google home cannot. (You can set up a virtual switch to trigger a routine, but there’s no direct way to run a routine.)
The “OK Google, good morning” is triggering a built-in function of Google Home which has nothing to do with SmartThings. It’s called the daily briefing.
Smartthings will allow you to create a SmartThings routine called “good morning” but Google Home doesn’t know that it exists. That’s why saying good morning to google home is not doing any of the things in your good morning smartthings routine.
You can change a few of the things that Google Home will say by using the “my day” settings. But again, nothing to do with SmartThings.
