I have a 10-week old baby at home, we have created some Google Home routines to help her go to sleep. When we put her down we say the command “Ok Google Shush”. This sends google the command “play shush sounds” and plays a shushing white noise that she likes. The problem is that Google has decided to limit this white noise to 8 hours long. I even tried changing the command to “play shush sounds for 12 hours”. Google responded with “You can only play white noise for 8 hours”. So it’s obviously a limitation with Google. This turns off the white noise at about 4:00am and my daughter promptly wakes up around 4:03am.
I’m hoping HA can help me work around this. My thought is to set an automation that would trigger a 7 hour timer when the Google Home started playing after a set time of day. When that time ends I would like to have HA send the command to Google Home “play shush sounds”. Can this be done? I’m not familiar with what action I would have to create to get the Google Home to accept that command.
Help me get more sleep!!!
