How to add capability of a "light" to a "switch" so that Google Home sees my ZigBee switch added to ST?

(Rob) #1

I recently purchased a Third Reality switch to try it out. So far it works great from the SmartThings Classic App. I am using the custom Device Handler that they provided, but I also was using it with the standard ZigBee Switch handler.

The problem is that when I try to add the switch to Google Home through ST integration, the GH does not recognize switches at all. My question is, how would I go about adding a toggle to the ZigBee Switch so that it would be recognized by GH (or even IFTTT) as something that can be toggled on/off like a lightbulb? Thanks!


It should find the switch. You may need to remove smartthings from google home, and then re add it.

That worked, thank you. That was the first time I’ve had to unlink and re-link to add an item, but I’m glad it worked. Thank you.
