I have had the Google Assistant component set up and running since its inception and just got the request_sync update from 0.58 working.
My cover entity (my garage) is exposed to GA and it shows up in the Google Home app as a light bulb symbol, although I explicitly set in my customize to say
google_assistant_type: cover. When I attempted to ask google “is the garage open or closed”… the response brings a web page suggestion, but if I ask google “is the garage on or off”, she responds with “The garage is on” (for clarity my garage is closed right now)… What does that mean??? Is GA (sort of) privy to the state of my garage from the cover component? Somehow the data for ON/OFF from a light is transferred properly, but the OPEN/CLOSE state of a cover component is not?
FYI I did not want to try to open my garage and try again because I’m at work and not home.
NOTE: I will edit this post with an update when I retry my query after work with my garage open.
