Will we get Google Home Voice compatibility?

Well, I guess we have Alexa voice control, though not perfect, but will we be getting Google Home voice control in the near future? As the Google Home is already shipping and supported in more countries and than Alexa Echos, I would say it is the next progression.

What do you say Zipato?

I receive my French Google Home today.

It's very simple to do a rules with a virtual meter and IFTTT.


1 make 10 sentences, and it works perfectly

As far as I know Google Home integration is on the road map and under development, you can probably make that question on Zipato Support so you get a more accurate answer.

A little Video that I have done with Google home (french) and Zipatile:

I hope Google home works better than Amazon Echo............. what a nightmare is that. In the Alexa app it discovers my devices, I remove most devices from the list as they are not used..............a day later all the devices are there again.....very annoying.


Voice recognition is also not very good. I had it when I said, "turn curtain on" she replies: Gherkins added to your shopping list...... wtf? Or when I say TV on............. she replies: I found several devices with that name, which one do you mean? But in the app there is only 1 device called TV ...... On other occasions she just says "OK" but nothing happens, until after 3 or 4 tries it finally works...............

Google Home integration is one of top priorities for us at the moment. We are planing to launch it before the end of this year.

Dear Sebastian,

will be there also a connection to Google Services like Play Store etc.? Because a lot of 3.party Apps want to "talk" to Google Play Store.

What year?

It already works great with IFTTT. To get voice feedback from the ZipaTile to the GH you can use a RPi, also works like a charm!

can i ask why you need to use a RPi? Cant you already program voice feedback in the IFTTT Google Home channel.183ee9410172b491928a51216fd23cd3

Yes, I know but this is only a response when you use a voice command from GH to the Zipato controller. This is a great feature of the Assistant service in IFTTT, but I want to make GH say something without using a voice command first. I didn't find any other method than using a RPi to get this working.

When my Mobotix camera detects someone at the front door it triggers a virtual sensor in my ZipaTile. When I get home (using the garage door) and pass a movement sensor a rule checks if the virtual sensor is active and if so it makes my GH warn me to check the camera images.

hi Ivo,

That's must be nice to use!

Could you explain us how you made it? what is your RPi used for?

Sorry, I just seen your post on the other topic!

Thanks Ivo!

Hi,

I think that using a Raspberry as a bridge between Zipato and Google home sounds really interesting. But I cant find the topic that discribs how to do it.

Is there anyone who can help me with it?

Thanks for a quick reply!

This will be fun try.

What RPI do you recommend?

photo

I’m using a 2 B v1.1, using LAN (not WiFi) connection. But now I would buy a model 3 as the price difference is not much. I’m not an Rpi expert but managed to get it running in an afternoon. The delay is quite acceptable.

Okej,

Thank you for sharing your experiences.

Please share your thoughts once you get it running. Maybe there are better solutions now as this idea is quite old in IT time.

Cheers

Thank your all för the work you have done. I just bought a Google Home and i have a Zipato with support for both Z-wave and 433 mhz (telldus) support. I aödo have another Telldus controller that support both protocolls. And Telldus just released that they do support Google Home. So what do you suggest?

I think this will be released at the end of the year.

Which year😳❓

:-) very funny.

To be totally honest, it really isnt all Zipatos fault. Google have been making every Hub maker jump through hoops repeatedly to get their product Google Home certified. Simple Hubs like a Hue Hub have only a small number of products and functionality, and are thus certified faster. Also Google are now putting a lot of demand on Hub makers for user privacy information that they are not entitled to. So while I share your frustration and lack of progress in this area, I can also understand some of the delay.

I say again, another reason why I think Zipato should outsource solutions and work with developers like this https://www.skaro.com.au/ "sigh"

In other thread zipato wrote that they have other top priority at the moment.

I have no words.. really no words: 6 months ago Zipato wrote that google home was the top priority. Now near to the date promised, it's no more the top priority.

No Words.

I'm wondering now how Zipato has ever managed to bring such a product on the market. Without a doubt, their hubs are extremely flexible and powerful. But their management and dealing with customers is a disaster. No information what is currently pending is also an information. I can not imagine that Zipato will survive the next year unless some basic things change. For my part, I will change the system as soon as possible. Enough is enough.

So sorry to hear that they dont develop google home support any more.

I like this device, but will buy something another, may be samsung.

I have not only z-wave devices and google home is only way to get all devices together.

Is this dropped alltogether or pushed back? I still find not supporting Google Home is very damaging nowadays. Remember Google said during CES2019 Google Assistant is available on 1 billion devices.

I think they still do, it will be released before the end of the year.

whitch the year?

there is a solution to use Zipato with google home using IFTTT but it is a shame nothing new since a long time. Ok new product is a good thing but old problems still remaining:

managing users

cam integration

I wish we would get some kind of update from Sebastian. It has been a long time since we have heard anything about this from them. I have several projects in the pipeline for over a year that I have put on hold until this feature is there. The IFTTT workaround is cumbersome and would much prefer to use native integration; which has been promised any day for over a year now. I wish I would have known a year ago that it was over a year away from occurring; I could have planned a bit better and gone through the hassle of integrating the IFTTT way.

IFTTT workaround is broken as well since http requests for newly added virtual devices don't work.

Is that a bug in the latest FW?

Read here https://community.zipato.com/topic/old-virtual-switches-do-react-on-url-request-new-ones-not. I also submited a ticket 2 month ago and ticket is still open, support saying this is a known issue and they are working on it. It must be a pretty serious bug as it takes so much time to fix;

Still works for me, guess I'm lucky.

Hello all Zipato team, so any news?

Hate to revive this ancient thread, but given the recent outage between Google Home --> IFTTT --> WebHooks, it is very frustrating having so many vendors involved. Native support for Google Home in Zipato would be much appreciated.


@Sebastian, do you have any updates for us on the status of the Google Home integration?

I think the zipatile team has left the building...

@zipato, @ sebastian, we are customers, and you promised a RoadMap... what's the status?

First of all we have to apologize for the delay in adding this functionality. The worst part is that this integration has been done long time ago, but we didn't publish it duo to backend changes which we were working on in this year. Our backend is now based on Systems, virtual homes which are having one or more local servers (Zipabox, Zipatile) inside. Integration with Google Home needs to be updated to support proper System selection now and we will publish it immediately afterwards. We are planning to to submit updated integration to Google for certification within this month, so we expect it to be public within September.

Thanks for an exhaustive response to what's going on. I am pleased to hear that everyone's wait has not been in vain. Then we keep all thumbs up so we can see Google Home very soon.

Have a good day, everyone!

Dear Sebastian, thanks for the update with an hint of the roadmap. Could you be so kind to give also an update on the other recurring topics that seems to be related to roadmap, and for which every formerly announced deadline has been missed?


In detail they are:

- Alexa v3

- Alexa in Italian

- New mobile app


There is also a new issue with Android Push Notification open from 3 days on the community and without any feedback from Zipato Team.


Thanks in advance.

Hi Carlo,

we are now primarily working on the new backend release together with the new mobile APP. This is practically new Zipato platform (although based on the current one) and this is the reason why we postponed publishing of any integration in the meanwhile. We plan to start publishing new backend within this month so Alexa v3 and Google Home integration are expected to be published in September. Italian skill is really only mistake from our side and it is not so dependable of the new backend. It's only translation which is required from our side so we will try to do it even earlier. Sorry for this delay.

@sebastian, Thank you for your reply, And I really hope Zipato will be able to keep the delays.

Hi @sebastian. So we are on September now. Were you able to submit the integration to Google for certification on August? I'm really thinking on leaving Zipato and get any other system, due to issues like this. Thanks.

photo

Dear Sebastian, could you kindly give us an update?

Another month has passed. From a month I'm experiencing a severe issue with push notification (started at beginning of august and never existed before) and support said that I've to wait for the new mobile app (that hasn't an expected delivery date).

September is started so we are also expecting both Alexa (in Italian) and Google Home integration.

Thanks in advance.

We are near to september end and, as usual, release timeline risk to vanish with no updates from zipato.

@sebastian, @zipato... any news on the roadmap and the updates? please keep informed your customers! the delays are more understandable when there are some communication.
