In this article, we go through how to pair Sengled Smart devices and Google Home as well as give you some example Google Home commands.
Pair Sengled Home With Google Home
1. Open the Google Home app. The App should detect your Google Home device. From the top left corner of the home screen, tap 'Menu' and navigate to 'Home Control' tab. Tap the plus sign in the lower right corner and select 'Sengled Home' from the list of partners.
2. Input your Sengled Home app account credentials when prompted.
3. The Google Home app scans for nearby devices that are plugged in and ready to set up. You can choose your Sengled bulbs and add them to rooms, so that control all bulbs of a room at one time by voice control.
4. You are all set.
Please note that "Google Home" app will not automatically assign the bulbs to their corresponding scenes that are already assigned by the 'Sengled Home' app.
You may, however, assign them to rooms through the Google Home app to keep the same groupings (i.e: if you have two Element bulbs grouped in one 'Office' room in the Sengled Home app), you may assign them to an 'Office' room in the Google Home app in order to use grouping functionality.
Please note that name changes made in the Google Home app will not reflect in the Sengled Home app. Additionally, name changes made through the Sengled Home app will not be reflected in the Google Home app unless you un-link and then re-link your Sengled Home.
If you add new devices or rename your devices in Sengled Home App, you should tap the plus button then add devices or say "Hey Google, sync my devices" to refresh the device list.
