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.

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?
