I have had 10 Philips Hue bulbs plus Hue Bridge across 5 rooms working with Google Home, Home Mini & Assistant successfully for the past 6 months. Today I added a new Hue bulb.
I had to unlink and then re-link my Philips Hue account to Google Assistant before the new bulb was added into Assistant. All of the rooms, lights and scenes came across from Hue into Assistant.
I now find that voice commands are very intermittent, for example - if I say "OK Google, turn on the Dining Room light" it responds with "sorry, i don't know which light you want to switch on", if I say "OK Google turn on the dining room lights" lightS rather than light, it says "OK, turning on 2 lights" but there is only 1 light in Assistant, Hue and in the actual room. I have the same issue for the bedroom, only 1 light, but I have to say lights for it to work. In the kitchen there are 4 lights, but when I ask Assistant to turn them on I get "Alright, turning 12 lights on"
If I say "OK Google, lights" whilst in the same room as the Home Mini I get a response of "It looks like Philips hue is unavailable at the moment" - although the 2 lights of the room I'm in do actually turn on
I have tried "OK Google, sync Philips Hue", I get a response of "OK, syncing devices for Philips hue" but nothing actually happens.
- Philips Hue app on Android is the latest version (3.87)
- Hue Bridge, Bulbs, Home, Home Mini and App are all on the same WiFi network
- Hue Bridge is logged in with same Google account as Assistant
- Google Assistant is authorised for Philips Hue
- The Hue app controls the lights fine
- I removed all Hue devices from Assistant
- Deactivated Google links in Philips Hue account
- Added Philips Hue via Google Assistant
- All rooms, lights and scenes are imported from Hue to Assistant
As a test, I renamed the dining room light from "dinging room light" to "DL1" as per another post I saw that suggested light names should not include room names - it didn't make any difference
Can anyone suggest how I can get this working correctly in a consistent manner please?
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions
