Hello-

Apologies if this has been asked before. I couldn't find it in the thread. Is it possible to query status of a device, e.g.:
- "Is the bedroom light on?"
- "Is the front door closed?"

Thanks,
Ron

Yes it is - you can also do it by Google Room ("What lights are on in the bedroom") etc.

Just a quick one. Just tried checking the back door (having seen the post above) and 'Is the back door closed?' is not understood but 'Is the back door off?' gets the reply 'The back door is off'

Which is correct but not right, if you see what I mean.

Not important but thought I should mention it.

I am using LightwaveRF door contacts which report open and closed to Domoticz.

Nope, that's a fair comment - open/close are *still* not available yet with GH (they're coming, and Controlicz is ready).

No problem, just thought I'd mention it.

Anyone else expierincing problems with Google Assistent? I cant open the assistent settings, the "compass"button is visible, but nog clickable. Tried it on 4 android devices. Also switching the language from Dutch tot English didn't help.

Update:

I just uninstalled the Google and Assistant app and reinstalled them. After that's i was able tot open the assistant settings, but there is no way to setup Controlicz... :roll:

I would like to protect my Domoticz from the outside world and opening the HTTPS port sounds good but not for me.
Can you provide me from where Controlicz is coming eg. IP's?

I can do one better - my laptop is currently 1200 miles from me. I've changed nothing :)

@Madgeni,

Why is Dutch Controlicz not working? We can't link it in the Google Assistant as mentioned before. I Would like to use it.

After deleting my old account and creating a new one i was able to make the payment. I guess there was something wrong in the old one. Now i`ve added Controlicz to GA and added my devices :mrgreen: .

Now i have to figure out what commands i have to use. When i say: Hey Google, put the lights on, all lights go on but also my doorbell starts ringing :shock: .

Unfortunatly Controlicz is not available in Dutch right now...

I have both an echo dot and an Google home mini setup in my living room. Previously I was using the Alexa with Controllicz but wanted to compare both devices to see which one suits my needs.
Upgraded my free account to a paid subscription and Controllicz was a breeze to set up for both devices.
I did some testing by turning lights on, setting colors, dimming lights etc. With Alexa this works almost instant (within 1 second) and almost 100% of the time, however with the Google mini there is a very noticable delay (5 seconds or more). Also very frequently google tells me the lights have been changes, but nothing happens. Does anyone have similar issues with the Google device or is there something I can check?

I have a couple of Dots and a few Google Homes, all seem to respond in a similar (almost instantaneous) time. The Dots sometimes 'wake up' when they think (incorrectly) that the key word has been spoken and a couple of times one of the Google Homes has mistakenly tried to switch off (or on) all the devices, which was a bit of a laugh. There is a Google Home Mini in the kitchen which often responds, even though it is not the nearest to the person speaking, it then seems to get confused and says 'Something has gone wrong.' I think this could be because it is a long way from the wireless hub.
Generally though, they all respond in a timely and accurate fashion.

PS: The reason I have both is that I use the Dots (which I had first before Google Home was available in the UK) for Amazon Music, which I play through the Google Homes (better speakers). The Google Homes are the main 'smart home' communicators.

There is definitely some latency between asking and that request hitting controlicz, which is frustrating. But I'd put it at around 1 second. I'm hoping google will address it with a sw update
