I´m having problems with google home connecting to openhab.
I read a lot in couple of threads and tried many of them. I couldn´t solve the problem by my own for the last 5 months. Maybe you can give me advice what to do to get it working.
My openhab server has working items with tags. I added items like xiaomi vacuum cleaner, Fritzbox, camera, smartphones, chromecast, google home - all working and showing in my sitemaps. But unfortunately no connection to google home app as I could use those items by telling google.
Of course I have a working myopenhab account. I tried it thru phone on cellular network and I could control everything within the openhab app on android.
This is my openhab configuration:
-openhab 2.5.0.M1 (also had before 2.4 stable, same problem) on a Gole1 (intel atom Win10 computer) installed with the .exe like the documentation is telling
-Java 8 platform by Zulu188.8.131.52-jdk8.0.153-win_i686
-installed add-ons: Astro Binding; Chromecast Binding; Fritzbox TR064 Binding; Network Binding; Xiaomi Mi IO Binding; openHAB Cloud Connector; REST Documentation; Basic UI; HABPanel; Home Builder; Paper UI
-services openhab cloud -> mode with remote access; items to expose ->all
-set language to English
configuration in google home:
-tried language in German and English
-no devices added for now
For testing and connecting google home I deleted all my items and sitemaps and made testfiles like this:
Switch Testlight "Test Light" ["Lighting"]
sitemap Haus label="Hauptmenue"
Switch item=Testlight label="Test Light"
I also tried [ “Lighting” ] instead of [“Lighting”] and also [“Switchable”].
In sitemaps and on my smartphone within openhab app I can toggle the Testlight switch. It also gets registered in Event log on myopenhab. So everything works fine…
I deleted all previous Applications on myopenhab.org and started to add openhab in google home app. I can log in and grant OAuth2, but then nothing happens any more. Tried it 100 times, deleting applications on myopenhab and reconnecting, saying “OK google, sync my devices”…nothing. Always tells me that I have no devices yet.
Its really frustrating and takes all the joy a smart home should give.
Besides for some reason my openhab server crashed 2 times like every 2 months and I couldn´t start it again, although 10 min earlier I was able to reach it, so had to make a clean install and copied the conf files I backed up. Can´t guess why.
I hope someone has some suggestions for me.
Thanks in advance and thank you for being such a great community.
