Google Home Setup
- Open the Google Home app on your mobile device and tap the + button in the top left corner.
- Tap Set up device, then Works with Google.
- A list of available Google Home integrations will appear. Tap the magnifying glass to search and look for HomeSeer, then tap it.
- You will now be prompted to enter your MyHS credentials. Enter the same information you use to log into HomeSeer Mobile or the MyHS webpage.
- After a brief moment, the two will be paired and you will be presented with a list of the devices in your HomeSeer which Google was able to see. You can now start selecting devices and adding them to different rooms and creating routines in Google Home!
After device discovery is complete, you should be able to control any discovered voice by using any combination of its name and location. For example, if the discovered device is First Floor Living Room Candle Lights, the following commands should work:
- "Hey Google, turn on the Candle Lights"
- "Hey Google, turn on the Living Room Candle Lights"
- "Hey Google, turn on the First Floor Living Room Candle Lights"
If for any reason, you can't control your devices after discovery, here are a few things to check:
- Make sure MyHS is connected to your system. Navigate to myhs.homeseer.com and log into your account. Access your system.
- Make sure your Google Home device is working.
- Check your Internet connection.
If everything is working but you still can't control devices, open a service desk ticket for help.
