  • GH doesn't understand devices with similar names

    Previous when I used Vera and HA Bridge, I just give the device a nick name and never an issue.

    IE:
    Living Room Table Lights
    Family Room Tables Lights

    In HS I name them simply table lights and assign rooms. Then in Google Assistant, I assign the room and provide a nick name. I've tried both ways, adding the room names to the nickname as well as keep it just the device name of table lights.

    If I say anything with table lights, both lights will be triggered.

    Not one but any device I have with similar configuration have same results. How do you guys over come this? Or did you simply rename the device in HS?

    The way I resolved it was to rename the device to "Table Light" With GH whenever you use plural, is will shut off multiple devices. I have a support issue open with Google on this , and was escalated to their Highest Tier" according to the original support rep I was dealing with. They recognize this issue as a bug.

      The plural seems to work well and easy fix. Thx for the tip
