How do I get Home to recognize "close" in stead of "turn off" 1 Recommended Answer 10 Replies 0 Upvotes
Hi I have home automation through a Google Home - Pariot bridge to my home automation system (connected as a Linked Service). In there, I have set up switches connected to the curtains. The switch is set up with the device name "curtains". I control them in multiple rooms, with different Google mini's.
I can always open and close them by saying"Ok Google, Turn off the curtains" and "Turn on the curtains"
On some days I can say: "Ok Google, close the curtains" and she responds "Sure, turning off the curtains". Same with "Open the curtains"
But most of the times, she would respond: It looks like this device has not been set yet..."
So why does Google Home not consistently recognize the word "Close" and even worse, think the device does not exist when I used that word? There are some weeks it works perfect, and then weeks that it does not work most of the time.
