Is Smart home working on supporting Google Home direct actions?
Universal Devices just instituted ISY control with Google Home Direct Actions. It's awesome. Near instant voice control of devices. This is what I have.
I gave my mom, dad and sister all the Insteon Hub. I have been able get Google Home to work with the Smarthome Insteon Hub with a contortion of IFTTT and Stringify, but it takes over 10 seconds for commands to be carried out. Not use friendly.
Will the Smarthome Insteon Hub support Google Home Direct Actions soon?
I, too, have the same question. Right now I have to funnel all commands through my Logitech Harmony hub to control my Insteon devices. I'd really like to know if there will ever be direct support for my home automation.
With the Insteon hub supporting Alexa, I would be highly surprised if they did not include google home at some point in the near future. Unfortunately
Insteon does not make users aware of their support roadmap so no one would know for certain. For all we know they could have it ready now in testing to work out the kinks and pass googles certification.
The two Hubs Connect to the outside world differently. The 2242 offers a web page interface that can be accessed via a browser, whereas the 2245 uses an API that can connect to outside web-based services like Harmony and Alexa and Stringify.
