Looks like you've got google assistant in Swedish!? Have you gotten the home controls to work?
Yes and no, Google Assistant on the phone is in Swedish, Google Home is in english.
So it's a bit of "Swenglish".
This is a bit confusing, are we talking about google home the application or google home the smart speaker? To get voice control over domoticz I need to have home controls enabled in google assistant, correct?
When I talk about Google Home, I mean this product.
Google Home the smart speaker.

Google Assistant on my mobile phone, and other Android devices, is in Swedish while GH only understands and speaks English.

You can either via GH or Google Assistant on your mobile phone use ifttt.com to send English voice commands to Domoticz, to turn on and off lights. You can also do this with Controlicz.com, though in a more integrated way, when you can group on rooms e.t.c in a much nicer way. This provided that you linked https://ifttt.com to your Goggole account and similar to https://controlicz.com/.

I do not remember that I have specially activated home controls, with Controlicz they just pop up and then You group them by room.

hm...so, you have Google assistant in Swedish, an account with controllicz and you can control lights etc? Or do I need ifttt as well? I'm starting to wonder if perhaps my problem is that I currently only have a "free subscription" with controllicz....

Let me get this straight for how to get controllicz to work with Android: Register for an account, port forward the port (443) and test the connection from controllicz webpage. If it works, goto google assistant and click on "Explore" or "Utforska" in Swedish and add controllicz from there and then it should work?

Is there a step that I'm missing since I can't even press the function "explore" - I see the button but nothing happens when pressed.

Edit: Uninstalled updates for the google app and now "Explore" button works and I can find Controllicz but I doesn't seem that I can add it's functionallity. I'm moving forward anyway :)

Finally got my setup working with a subscription and google assistant in english. I have all my switches in room plans since beofre and they show up in controlicz but they don't actually belong to a room in the settings of controlicz of my phone. Am I correct that I need to assign rooms manually on the phone the first time to be able to say stuff like "turn on the lights in the office"?

Thanks, now it's only a matter of waiting for google to release home controls for the newly added languages then.

German Question!
Some times ago i coud ask for the temperature, but it not working anymore.

"Wie ist die Temperatur Warmwasser" - Answer from google "Das Thermostat Warmwasser steht auf 50 Grad und ist aus"

How ca i get now the temperature from my devices, are there new keywords?

There's always been an issue with sensors - Google only have a trait for thermostats, so I can use it, but it will always give the "and is off"/"und ist aus" message, no matter what I do (it's a known bug). Sensors as a device type are coming "soon" - I have the documentation but they're not implemented yet.
I'm assuming it is 50 degrees?

Is it not recognising the device name?
It could be getting confused if the word temperature is in the device name? You can change them in Domoticz by using Controlicz:friendlyname in the device description then resyncing

Hi,
sorry to ask always the same question but I had no reply as of today...how long will it take to have the inverted blinds implemented in Controlicz please? Even a generic figure would be good (1 week, 1 month, ... ).
The question is of course directed to @Madgeni

Thanks,
mantoz

Sorry for the delay, I'm often out of home.
Just synced and tried again... no change.
"Switch on the blinds" closes them, and "Switch off the blinds" opens the blinds. This is the opposite of the desired behavior of an inverted blind.

Thanks,

Hi Madgeni,

You inverted the blind command again. Third breaking change on the same thing ...

No change in configuration (domoticz, google home) when I the voice command :
"Ok google, Open the blind Cuisine"
Domoticz logs :
"2018-09-26 19:00:16.277 Status: User: Controlicz initiated a switch command (36/Volet Cuisine/Off)"

It's a paid service now ...

Ask for data and feedback from users to get this thing done properly.

I understand, and share your frustration. With that, let's fix this once and for all :)

For an 'Inverted' type blind, with Google Home, you issue an 'Open' and it should issue an On to Domoticz?
For a 'non-inverted' type (one that does not have the word Inverted in it's type), you issue an 'Open', and it should issue an Off to Domoticz?

Is that it?

I repost my private message which should contains all the information needed (domoticz configuration, UI behaviour and voice command though controllicz behaviour)

In domoticz :

Switch type : switch/ blinds inverted
Closed blind button tooltip : "Close the blinds"
When I click on the Closed blind button shows a label : "Switch off" brief message
Domoticz Log :
Status: User: Admin initiated a switch command (36/Volet Cuisine/Off)
Controlicz device :

Code: Select all

IDX	Name		Alias		Type		Current State/Data	Google/Alexa
36	Volet Cuisine	Volet Cuisine	Light/Switch	Closed			Blind
Voice command :
Ok google, close the blind cuisine
Domoticz log :
2018-08-27 19:56:29.173 Status: User: Controlicz initiated a switch command (36/Volet Cuisine/On)
Best regards

Ok, so an inverted blind sends an On command for Open, and Domoticz uses an On command for Open. A non-inverted blind uses Off command for Open, and an On for Closed.

Implemented. Please sync your devices and retry.
