    Google Home and Lights/Pugs

    Hi All.

    Not sure where this ends up and who is at fault.

    KASA app understands the difference between the switches and plugs. Easy.

    Upon integration with the Google Home, we get a bit wonky.

    Ask Google to handle the lights: "Turn on the lights". It faithfully turns on all the connected lights.
    Ask Google to handle the plugs: "Turn on the plugs". It turns on the plugs AND the lights.

    Lights are handled fine but plugs include all lights.
    There is no differentiation between the two.

    Is this a fault in the API link with the Home? You will note the Home shows all the icons as wall plugs for what it is worth.

    This is an issue and should be addressed.

    Thx.

    Kev.

    Change the switches and plugs to different names, such as living room switch, bedroom plug.

    Yes - you are correct and I have done this.

    Point is, one *should* be able to simply ask for EITHER all the lights off or the plugs off, and to have it work. It does not as the plugs get lumped into the lights but not the other way around. Try it.

    Hi, did you check this with Google? It looks like the command makes Google Home confusing.
