    The only problem with setting the voice command seems to be that the Home unit needs the Room/Floor information provided manually. When I add a Voice command to a couple basement lights and say turn off the basement lights it gets all but the ones I added voice commands to. Not a big deal if the new sync keeps the rooms associated.

    Thanks, so it looks like that you have a newer release of hs. I hope it is stable for you, I was waiting for others feedback on the other post. Thanks for the update and have a great holiday.

    I was able to get things working by filling out the "Voice Command" field in the device configuration with the name that I want Google Home to respond to. Leaving the field empty Google Home takes the full string of {Floor} {Room} {Device} as the device name and that screws things up

    thanks for the suggestion. I was hoping there might be a way to keep the current names as it was working fine with Amazon Echo.

    Telling Google Home to turn on/turn off the "Kitchen Counter Light" or "Kitchen Table Light" works fine. However asking to turn on/off "Kitchen Light" will result in "Sorry, I don't know which kitchen light"

    I suspect Google Home presumes turn on kitchen light refers to the room kitchen which has 3 lights. Is there any way to have Google Home reference the device name only, or does anyone know a better solution?
