Is there a plan to add support for google home?
Yes, it's in the plan. We are waiting for it to mature a little bit more, as their current implementation is rumored to be changing.
No updates as of yet. It's on the radar to go back and reinvestage if their smart home offerings are more matured yet.
Is IFTTT an option for using Google Home? G Home is much better at natural language and much more intelligent than Amazon. I can no longer find Axial/InControl on IFTTT.
@pawight... when you say something like 'much better' it assumes you have both devices and are comparing them side by side. is that the case?
Just bumping this up as I would also like to see a plugin for Google Home. We got some as gifts and love them and I do not want to have to switch to Amazon or have both.
The app for Google Home is currently being reviewed. I expect it to be approved shortly! Snag the plugin from our store so you are ready: https://www.axialcontrol.com/Buy/product/amazon-echo
I bought the plug in but still not seeing the axial control in google home ? Is it available ?
@PMartineau Just waiting on Google's OK. I jumped the gun on announcing it here - I had assumed it would only take a few hours as Google is generally pretty quick. It's been a couple weeks though, and no response from the Google review team. Hopefully soon!
Has Google given any update? I'm still not seeing it available.
When I emailed them last week, they mentioned that it takes "a while" to complete reviews for smart home apps. Googling around revealed some people who have waited for up to a month.
I feel bad that I even mentioned this before it was ready. :)
Well, as an update...
I heard back from Google; they congratulated us for writing a smart home app that made it as far as it did in their testing and approval process (yay!). However, the next step is that Google wants to us to send 2 pairs of every device that Axial supports to a 3rd party for actual hands-on testing and verification.
Needless to say, I think this process is going to take a considerable amount of time. For anyone who pre-purchased the plugin for google's home asisstant, you can send us a message and request a refund. Sorry about that!
I'll continue to update this thread as the process moves forward.
That's a little outrageous on Google's part. There are multiple apps on there that support zwave devices. There's no way other companies/apps did that kind of testing being that there are thousands of zwave products.
Wow, that sucks. What the hell google. You should tell them that getting approval from Amazon was way easier ;)
This sounds like a great add-on! Is there any way I can vote or something on Google's site to promote it? It's funny, when I go check their apps for the google assistant, if you type in Axial it'll show "Axial Control" in the search with the correct icon, but the results don't bring up anything.
Supposedly it was approved, which is why you can type it in to see it in the directory, but there's a bug that is preventing it from displaying. I'm told this is impacting many skills, now it's just a matter of Google fixing it *crosses fingers*
It looks like they got part of it working: https://assistant.google.com/services/a/uid/000000a60ecd7084?hl=en
However, it doesn't find the entry on google home itself. I went ahead and bought the plugin though...
Hi, any news or developpement on the google assistant plug-in ? I've tried the link above but still doesn't seem to work.
Hi there, Santa Claus brought me google home mini and I bought the plug-in but it does not work. how proceed with the development?
Still waiting on some changes from the Google side. Specifically, waiting until they lighten up their requirements for testing two of each supported z-wave device.
Any news? I think a lot of us have been waiting for this feature.
what can the plugin do with google assistant through the nest home hub (formerly google home hub)?
something in between?
i would buy the plugun if i could launch scenes or set a trigger...
Is this feature request still being developed? Is there a hardware alternative that allows voice control with the Nest hub?
I'm curious about this too. Just got a Google Home alarm clock / speaker so was hoping to control my lights and such with my voice, but I can't find Axial in the list when I try to add a service. ☹ Don't see a plug-in on the Axial site either.
