Hi everyone, we have Alexa in our one home and use it with ST which works fine. I add all my devices, I can say turn the living room lamp on, make the lightstrip pink etc, works fine every time.
I just got a bunch of Google Home’s but finding they act weird. Maybe I should post on the Home forums but will try here. Basically I linked it to my ST account which showed all my devices as expected. It then wanted me to put the lights all into rooms, so I did. The problem though is it seems to only control things by room. For example, I say “Turn on the kitchen light” and she goes “Okay, turning on 6 lights in the Kitchen” and turns every light on in there. I say “Turn on the living room lamp” and she goes “Okay, turning on 3 lights in the Living Room.”
If I don’t use Rooms though the app is always popping up saying “55 devices are not in rooms”. I just want to control lights etc individually like Alexa does. Am I just supposed to not include things in rooms?
It even gave suggestions for things I could say like “Make the Under Counter Lightstrip Pink” so I tried saying exactly that, and she goes “Here’s what I found on the web for ‘make the under counter lightstrip pink’” and then shows a Google search result.
