So I have like many others Samsung SmartThings an Philips Hue bulbs.
The Hue bulbs are of course in ST so I can automate them.
I now have a Google Home, connects to both ST and also to Philips Hue.
This means that I now have all the Hue bulbs TWICE in Home. Both from the Hue system, and also through ST. It looks kinda messy, and I guess it could give conflicts in some way when I ask it to change color to red in kitchen, then the kitchen bulbs would both get the directions from ST->Hue and also directly to Hue.
So what should I do? Should I NOT connect to Hue, and just use everything through ST?
I’m using Trend Setter to create groups for bulbs. The problem (when I set it up 1 year ago), Trend did not support to create ONE group through which I could control both temperature AND colors. I think I had to create both a White-group and a color-group.
So problem/question is should I even “import” the groups into Google Home? Or only the bulbs themselves.
Because I can forsee the problem that when I ask to set color to red in kitchen, then it will do that on both kitchen spot 1, 2 and 3 AND also on “kitchen lights group”. Meaning ALL lights associated to kitchen.
And ideas to optimize this?
