I just switched to android and am trying to get google assistant to discover my devices. I had no problem with alexa but I see many topics on this. I have tried just about everything I can find and I believe Im right on the tip but need some help. I have created all the stuff in actions and see the account in google assistant to add. When I touch the account it flashes a few screens and then comes back and says “couldnt update the setting, check your connection”
I doube checked everything and it looks good does anyone have a solution to ths?
Did you enter an IP address in place of xx.xx.xx?
Reason I’m asking is that one would normally get a name from duckdns or the like so I don’t understand why you would enter an IP address.
Also have you confirm you can access your HA frontend from outside your network when you enter https://xx.xx.xx in your browser address bar?
Can you maybe share a redacted copy of your google_assistant config?
I can see it talk to my home assistant, it just flashes so quick back to the page where you click the skill or whatever google calls them. its gotta something in the client id or secrect or token or ssn or blood they want for this to work lol
FYI only issue I “ever” had was to set expose_by_default: false and not adding expose: true for each entity under entity_config:
after the few screens I’d get “accounts are not linked” message but nothing showing up.
i think i ran across your post while searching I seen that mentioned. I have that line, I only want a couple entities exposed.
Ive tried many things but this was my last attempt and where Im getting that error:
project_id: -id was takin from the actions site where it says project id
client_id: -random generated with matching random generated in actions
access_token: - taking from actions page
api_key: - takin from action page
- Garage Door
thanks. I did try to add :8123 with no luck but I really dont see that being differnet. i will try to add what you suggested, forward 8123 and turn wifi off real quick. be right back, thanks for taking the time to help!
yes, else nothing will be displayed. It’s not 100% clear on the doc and I’ve submitted a PR for it (4936)
It doesn’t look like it’s your issue for now (would defo have been in the future tho) as you have a different error message, hence the suggestion to try again from scratch
