Google Home support?

Belkin can never give a clear answer. They say Google Home support is coming "soon". Can we expect it early 2017, 2018, or ever?

I got mine working with my Google Home by hooking up to IFTTT, was pretty trivial and works flawlessly. You'll find the google voice control stuff under Google Assistant on IFTTT.

 

It would be nice to be able to do stuff like:

 

  • Switch on x for y minutes
  • Switch on x in y minutes
  • Switch off x in y hour

But unfortunately this isn't yet possible.

Re: Google Home support?

A while ago I created a blog page on steps to integrate Wemo with Google home and it works seemlessly.

 

One thing to note is that after create recipe in IFTTT it takes several minutes before Google Home can recognize the commands. May be IFTTT has to sync with Google Home Webservice first.

You need to make sure you have WemoOnDrive setup as well

Not sure if you are deadset on IFTTT but native suport for GH arrives today:

Re: Google Home support?

Well it is here, has anyone managed to get it working, and is there any updates to install to do so? I am not having any luck so far...

Re: Google Home support?

Yes, my smart switches now work natively with GH. There are a couple step by step tutorials on Google Home's Forum. Those steps and tips worked well. No more delay in toggling switches on/off like with IFTTT.

Re: Google Home support?

Native GH support works great for switches and light switches, but bulbs don't seem to be there... Anybody got bulbs working?... Have install all of the firmware updates... Sad
