Google Home with Insteon Group/Scene

I've been using the plugin with my Google Home just fine with a minor exception. Groups/Scenes will not appear in the Google Home app under Home Control.


I can make dummy devices that show up in Google Home. All Groups have the "Voice command:" box checked and I have even re-synced Google Home to verify they are not added.

i don't have a google home to test, but i can confirm groups show in the Alexa app. If you can identify what is missing from the insteon group devices, i can update the plugin.

what version of the plugin are you using? the current release 3.0.6.0 probably isn't setting the Status Graphics correctly. this should be resolved in the latest beta when you create a group.

to fix your existing groups:

goto the group hs device, edit it, and set the "control use" drop down for On and Off respectively
