Can't add triggercmd to Google Home

  • I have my triggers working. Now I want to connect it to my Google Home speakers. The docs say run discover from the Home App, but there is no discover. Add new just gives you a long list of potential devices, none of which are triggercmd.

    The doc also has a web link that gets me as far as a page with an allow or decline. Allow just goes to an empty google web page.

    Can triggercmd still work with Google Home? Most of these postings are quite old.

    @km, I just unlinked and linked my account, then tested it, so from my perspective it's still working.

    I'm glad you told me the Discover tab is gone. I'll update the document right after I send this..

    Instead of the Discover tab, now you can:

    1. Open the Google Home app
    2. Tap the blue circle with the icon that looks like a drawer to get to the "Explore" tab, or get to it by tapping the three horizontal lines in the upper left, then tap Explore.
    3. Use the search field to search for triggercmd.
    4. Scroll down and find the Link option and tap it.
    5. Login and Accept.
    6. Tap the Google Assistant icon at the bottom and say, "ask TRIGGERcmd to run Calculator".

    I also verified this link worked to link my Google Account to my TRIGGERcmd account from my PC. Also btw, it's normal for that link to drop you off at the google page after linking.

    My new issue is getting a shortcut (routine) on Google Home for Trigger C M D commands. They work if I say them. For example if I say

    OK Google Tell TRIGGER C M D to run all lights off

    it works. But If I put

    Tell TRIGGER C M D to run all lights off

    as the action of a routine, I get

    "I don't know how to help with that yet."

    Any suggestions?

    @km, i just tested using the "I'm home" routine. I had it do "ask trigger cmd to run calculator" and that worked. So please try something simple like that.

  • What I was missing was that in a shortcut I need "cmd" not "c m d".

    @km, nice, that's good to know.
