Description

The Google Assistant and FIBARO system work together to make FIBARO devices even more convenient to use. FIBARO and voice control by Google will help you to control lights, blinds, temperature, sensors, scenes and even more without lifting a finger.

Google Assistant

The Google Assistant is a virtual assistant developed by Google that is primarily available on mobile as an app and on smart home devices, like Google Nest Audio, Google Nest Mini, Google Nest Hub and similar.

FAQ


Google Assistant is a virtual assistant developed by Google. It is a cloud-based voice service allowing you to enjoy a number of functions such as controlling your smart home gateway or home multimedia system.

Google Home is a voice-activated speaker powered by Google Assistant. You can use voice commands to play music, get answers from Google and manage everyday tasks such as control your FIBARO Home System.

You can say for example: “Ok Google/Hey Google, turn on the light.”
Or you can find FIBARO on the list of actions in the Google Home or Google Assistant app.

No, just say “Ok Google/Hey Google” then tell home control command.

There are some device names that we don’t recommend. Using them increases the chances of misinterpreting your speech. Don’t use words such as “scene, light, list, turn, switch etc.” as a device name. It is also not recommended to use the same word in various names (like “kitchen” as a room and “kitchen lights” as a device).

Yes. Moreover, you can use those devices together with the Google Assistant app on your mobile devices (as long as you are connected to the same Google Account).

Home Center 3, Home Center 3 Lite, Yubii Home, Home Center 2 and Home Center Lite.
There are few things you can try:
  • Make sure the device type is supported.
  • Make sure you have used FIBARO ID account that has ownership over the gateway.
  • Go to home.fibaro.com and check in gateway details that the Integrations are set to Active.
  • Update your gateway.
  • Unlink and link the FIBARO ID account again.

I none of the above helped, contact our technical support.


In Home Center 3/3 Lite or Yubii Home Configuration Interface:
1. Open the configuration of the device.
2. In Role field select “Light”, “Wall lamp”, “Garden lamp” or “Bedside lamp”.
3. Save configuration.
