Linking second HCL to Google Home


Recommended Posts

I have an HCL2 which, according to support, has a hardware fault and so will not update and therefore cannot access any newer devices.  It was supposedly going to cost almost the same to repair the fault, which I am pretty sure has been there since new, as it was to purchase a new HCL3.  So I now have two home centres.

 

The HCL2 is linked to Google Assistant for voice control.  This device is still running with all the previously controlled scenes and devices.

 

All new devices are controlled by the HCL3 but I am unable to link it to Google Assistant to enable voice control or access it via the Fibaro app on my phone.  Is there a way to enable two home centres to be accessible via the Fibaro id and therefore controllable by the app and Google Assistant?

I think only one controller in Fibaro ID can be set as main controller for integrations.

  • I checked your profile.  Does that mean that you are able to control all of the devices from the Echo and the Google mini?  If so, how do you set that up?

    You can connect one Fibaro ID to one Google account in Google Home..There is one really annoying thing is, that you will get only devices from your master center. So if you have a slave hub, with some devices, they will not appear in Google. (at least this was the state about a year ago). I think this is for Fibaro to solve, so i think this will reamin like this.

    On the other hand, having devices from your master, and having only one Fibaro ID in Google Home is really easy. Just link your Fibaro account in google Home and you will have the possibility to control your Fibaro devices from google nest or any other google device, (including your mobile phone)

  • Thanks for your comments.  I have already done that some time ago for the HCL2 and it works fine but I cannot add the second home centre to even a second google account because the fibaro cloud will only allow one home centre to be active any any one time.

     

    I suppose I could try creating a second fibaro account as well as a second google account and transfer the HCL3 to that account and then link it to the second google account. 

     

    If I could find a way to install a second copy of the fibaro app on my phone I might even be able to control both home centres from the phone.

     

    Any thoughts on either of these?
