Two hc2 and Google home only for one house


Recommended Posts

So I have two houses with a hc2 in both. I also have a set of Google home minis in both houses. 

 

However I'm only able to use voice to control one of the houses and the devices from the other house is not visible in the Google home app. 

I can add the devices from the other house by talking to fibaro and after listing devices choose the hc2 from the other house, but of course then the devices from the other house disappear from the Google home app... 

 

I don't know if this is for Google to fix or if Fibaro can list all devices for both hc2's. 

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem is appreciated.

I have a similar question.

Got a HC lite in the beachhouse and a HC2 in pur home.

When I sync devices in GH devices from both houses show up in the first GH house.

Please guide me to the smartest way to handle two houses in GH.

We’ve solved a similar problem (using alexa not gh) by setting up a ha bridge in each of the houses, which point to the respective HC2. 

 

We’ve then set up Alexa using different accounts in the houses so that only the local devices are linked. 

 

Like that we can control the devices in the beach house when we’re there and the devices in the main house when we’re there. 

 

Hope this helps.

Got the exact same problem, my HC Lite shows all devices in Google Home, not the HC2 i also have in our home.

Having two accounts doesn't seem to be the right way to go as @Kfruechtl is proposing. I understand that it does work but it should be "out of the box" to have this kind of functionality I think...

Ok for those interested, for now I fixed this by doing:

- Go to https://id.cloud.fibaro.com/ , click remote access

- Remove the HC that you do not want to be included with Google (for now)

- Unlink (if already linked) your Fibaro account from Google Home devices,

- Add Fibaro again, login and only the HC that is in id.cloud.fibaro will now show up on Google Home

- After this you can re-add your second, third HC back to id.cloud.fibaro

Well maybe not the full solution. How do I see the devices from my second house in my GH when I'm there? - as my google account is the same at both houses...
