Right, so finally Dutch language on my home mini through some form of magical apparition. Nothing really worked so removed and reattached. What's weird is that in can ask Google to turn all lights on and off but not individual rooms and not individual lights. It recognises no lights by name. Maybe because I renamed all of them in the home app from English to Dutch. Will retry with the controlicz name in the description field. Bizarre. All worked fine in English .

Several people seem to have issues so far with Dutch - scenes not being discovered is another. I'm hoping it's teething troubles, but have raised with Google Product owner

I noticed the scenes/groups thing. Bizarre that a language has any influence over how devices are treated...

It's discovering and returning them to Google, Google is just..ignoring them :(

Probably because they are too busy meddling with stuff they should really ignore

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.

Image
I have the same problem. Also noticed that RGB(W) are not recognized as such. They show as regular dimmable lights.

It's very annoying that scenes aren't showing in the app as I do almost everything in domoticz using scenes. What is strange is that they don't show in the home apps, but through the assistant app I was able to add the scenes to rooms. Haven't seen them anywhere since. I used this link to link the controlicz app to the Google assistant:https://assistant.google.com/services/a ... 8ba2?hl=nl

By first linking and then changing the settings (instellen) I was able to view the scenes. So Google probably knows about them but is ignoring them on purpose.

So a few points there:

You're right - the Google Assistant doesn't allow RGBW controls yet - which is annoying, but this UI functionality is new, so hope it will improve soon
Sensors aren't available yet - they're coming soon, i have implemented them under the covers, but waiting for Google to release them. Until that point, I have to treat sensors as thermostats in order to query them (which is also annoying).
Scenes - i'm hoping this is just a short term issue as Dutch language has only just been implemented

Found the Google documentation about RGB lights.
https://developers.google.com/actions/s ... ides/light
Apperantly the device type 'Light' has the traits 'brightness', 'colorspectrum' and 'colortemperature'. However no saturation. So RGB is supported RGBW not (fully). Maybe it is possible to use RGB value FFFFFF as white or something like that? I believe the Google Assistant also sends the detected color as string back in the request.

You can set warm/cold white - is that what you mean?

No with saturation I mean the mix between white and RGB(colorspectrum).
With colortemperature you can set the themperature of the color. For white that would be the range between cw/ww. Haven't seen it been used for other colors yet in consumer lighting.

Integration with dutch Home Assistant seems to work perfectly if you use the buttons in the new Home app.
However, any and all voice commands that are different from "set thermostat to X" and "turn off/on lamps" simply result in google's ability to play a song on youtube that somehow relates to the command you gave.

Apparently there's a song called "In het Licht" from "Sela", quite religious I should tell you. Now Google is trying to force religion into my home.

So.. I'm guessing the dutch voice commands just suck donkey balls and we gotta wait more.

Also, no support for those "Shortcuts" in dutch language.

:D :lol: :D :lol:
Same here. Frustrating Google responses like "Ik begrijp het niet" "Ik kan het niet" but it seems like Google simply doesn't want to.
24/10 is the new magical date then guys?

Not sure what triggered the change but giggle's assistant was completely ignoring me this morning (indicating she could not switch anything) so I disconnected controlicz, removed all non switchable devices from my room plans (pirs, contacts), reconnected controlicz and tadaa IT WORKS! I can switch devices in rooms again and it all works in Dutch. Yay. .

Are you able to connect controlicz to your google assistant while the phone is set to dutch? I'm on swedish and if i use swedish as language on the phone and search for "actions" in google assistant to add/link controlicz nothing shows up.

So to connect/link controlicz my phone must be on english.. How do you connect/link controlicz to your phone while on dutch?

Best regards.

Google assistant supports Dutch language these days so I can just select Dutch language. Is Swedish supported?

Okay Madgeni en others. Good news for users on new released languages!
I unlinked Controlicz on my Google Home app, reconnected and got all devices back in rooms again.
All devices are working now (for me in Dutch) on my Google Home Mini. Great! I'm using (dutch) device friendly names.
So far so good Madgeni, but still testing! :ugeek:

Seems to work better now.
I've deleted a device that was added to g home. Created a new device with the same name (diff idx ofc). Now every time I ask Google to sync my devices it says there was an error syncing devices with controlicz. Linking/unlinking doesn't help.
The old device also stays in g home. I know this because turning it on does nothing.
