In english “Cast” is reserved for playing content on a Chromecast. So you will need to use another name or alias for your kast.

I changed the name but no luck so far.

To help in troubleshooting you could ask something like “which lights are on” or “which lights are on in the living room “ to see if google has access to your kast light. Temporarily changing the assistant to English can also help finding out what goes wrong. If you changed the name in Domoticz you need to sync your devises again.

Does it show up as a device? If so, that's a good start. the error it gives back can sometimes be an indication of the problem Google has with the command - as HarR says, there are clearly some protected words/phrases Google has (there's no list!) - so use the Controlicz: rename in Domoticz device description to amend it quickly can be a way around it.

Dutch language support is clearly imminent - purely as I was allowed to certify Controlicz for it. It was rejected for Spanish some time ago, as it was a language they don't support yet.
As soon as Home Controls is available, it should start working, but would still expect some bumps as Google work out language controls etc

i'm trying to add Controlicz to my Google Home mini. Therefor i have created an account with controlicz.com which i'm trying to use.
When i choose add device Controlicz, and try to login, I get a question to give google 'full access' to my controlicz account. When i click Allow it gives a message that it cannot update the settings, and that i hae to check the internet connection.

How can i solve this?

Magdimi: I have both alexa and google home.
but because the home is dutch now I want to use Dutch.

my devices have dutch names and in the description I use the command to give it an englisch name for Alexa.

would it be posible that alexa uses my englisch description and google uses the normal names?

Both alexa and google should respond to either the device name (whatever it's called in Domoticz) AND any 'friendlyname' - so whatever you use in the Domoticz Description field.
That way you can use either name in either alexa/google

I have now side loaded the new home app as it was not available on my phone yet
It looks rely nice and easy.
Now i can also see that all temp sensors are shown as a "thermostat", does google not support separate temp sensors?
And i can not yet control the thermostat from the new app it shows the ambient temp but this is actually the set point.

I am unexperienced with Google Home and that may be the issue here, but..

Signed up for Controlicz, can see the devices, paid, linked service in my Google home app om phone, Accounts Linked, -success.

Now what?

I have tried to ask google to do something but only excuses ;) what's the syntax to do something?

Thanks

"Sync my devices" - discover devices
"Hey google, turn off <device>"
"Hey google, are the lights on in the <room>"
"Hey google, set the <thermostat> to x"
"Hey google, what's the temperature in the <room>/ of the <thermostat>"
"Hey google, dim the lights"
"Hey google, change the lights to <colour>"

Stuff like that. You can also use Google Assistant and type them

Thanks, I think this is where it goes wrong, asking to sync the devices gives "An error occured while synching My test app", any ideas?

I get Accounts are linked, but at the same time I get a message in the Google app, at the bottom, that Something went wrong?
