i am planning to buy another google home, for upstairs
but what are best practices, and how to setup?
for obvious things like, Light kitchen on/off , or screens down, and stuff like that, those services can be linked to both google homes
but what about common names?
“Volume up” on google home nr1 , needs to turn up my volume non my radio below
Volume up on google home nr2 , needs to turn up my volume non my radio in the bahtroom
i dont want to say “volume up in bathroom” its too long
So in google component (HA local), i was thinking about setting up 2 projects, with each his own configuration/devices, is that even possible? if yes is it also possible with the HA cloud version? because there is offcourse only 1 cloud component/service…
or how do you guys do this? thnx for advice
Having multiple Google Homes is fine. I have 3. They will all have access to all devices that you expose to Google. Can you explain the volume issue? If you ask a Google Home to increase its volume, it will only increase that one, not all, or are you referring to it controlling a HA media_player?
yes, i have created a switch “volume up” & “volume down”
that links to my media_player downstairs
so i also want to say on my second home “volume up” & “volume down”, thats should control my media_player upstairs
my google home nr 1 : is located in the kictchen, so created an alias like “light on” and it will turn the light in kitchen on
my google home nr 2 : will be in the bathroom, so i also want to say , “light on” , and it needs to turn bathroom light on
you can allocate the Google Home devices to a room, and do the same with the HA devices in your Google Assistant component config so that each one knows what to control for that room.
- bedroom lamp
- bedroom light
- dining table light
- dining room light
- dining light
yes, you can define rooms, and put the google home in the same rooms, but you are working with diferrent aliasses
i want have for example 2 switchs/scripts
room is then indeed differerent, but the name and aliasses are going the same
like this for example, so if i place google home device in room1 and google home device nr 2 in room2
will the google fire the correct switch ? or is it going to say : ok , turning on 2 x volumes
It will turn on the correct one for that room
ok, hope its going to work
is it also possible to create 2 projects on the google actions site
then in google assisant component, create 2 projects ? like
You can create multiple Google Projects but I’m fairly certain that HA only allows you to connect to one
