    If the Homeseer guys managed to put some pressure on the Googles to get this fixed, good for them! In any case, glad to see this finally seems to be working reliably again.

    I can also confirm that my syncing seems much better now. 36 devices and counting

    • Now for Google to add the ability to change the response. I dont need Google to repeat my command in loud, excruciating detail

          Follow the instructions in the above link and pray to Google day in day out like a ritual, eventually Google will hear you.

          • Anything special you all did to get GH working with ALL your devices? I have tried everything I can think of (including reset GH to factory settings a couple of times) and I still can only get 24 out of my 84 devices to sync with GH.

            • ufd108,

              Make sure your devices have the Voice Command box checked in the devices Configuration screen and are device types that do synchronize. Also, be sure room/names are unique as well as the text in the Voice Command field if you added something here. I believe the names can be the same if this text is different.

              Valid devices are on/off and dimming units, but not necessarily sensors. For instance, I have not tried, nor do I expect my multi-sensor (motion, temperature, humidity, light level) to work. I may be wrong on this, though, as I have not tried.

                • I was having the same problem a few weeks ago. I got around the problem by turning off voice control in bulk for all devices and then connecting via google home again. I was then able to turn on voice control on a few devices and use the command resync homeseer to find those devices. Over the last couple of weeks my devices have dropped out of google home again and I can't seem to get them back in. I haven't actually tried to remove and reestablish the connection between homeseer and google home after the difficulty I had a few weeks ago though.

                  • I'm having no problems still. All devices which have the Voice Command box checked in their configuration screen are syncing when I use the phrase "OK Google, sync HomeSeer.". The key party many miss is having the Voice Commands box checked for each device.

                    • Back to completely not working for me again. After not being able to resync after losing all devices. I was presented with a message to unlink the account and setup again. Unfortunately that is failing even after I disabled all voice control on all devices since that is what seemed to get things working last time.

                      • I'm not able to link my homeseer to Google home at all now.
                        Had issues with some devices not showing up, tried a couple of hey Google, sync devices without luck.
                        Tried to unlink, and now I can't connect.

                        Should think that a software which is quite pricey would work better...

                          Not having issues as late as this morning (added a new switch). Not sure if typo but the command is "sync homeseer". Do you have a large network?

                          • It finally worked, after trying to relink about 40 times.
                            But still missing devices (of same types that does show up) so not sure how I'm gonna solve that.
                            They're set up exactly the same in Homeseer.

                            Is there a 10 device limit?

                            • I have many more than 10 devices. Do the missing ones have the Voice Command box checked in their Configuration screen?

                              • All the devices I want to show up in Google home has Voice enabled.
                                But still not showing up.
                                The funny thing is that it has worked, but has stopped by it self ..
