Ok, while wwe are waiting for the intergration with google home, yeelights work perfectly with ifttt but:
- I have 5 rooms using yeelights, about 20 bulbs. Names: dinning room, kitchen, living room, bedroom1 and bedroom 2.
- I group bulbs and group names according to above.
- In ifttt, I combine google assistant with yeelight to say command, for example: turn on the kitchen lights, turn off the kitchen lights. It works fine but, I have to repeate each and every steps for each amd every room in the house, quite pain in the ass as this is just for toggle the lights. If i want to dim, to change scenes, to set brightness, I have to repeat all over again for rooms. No good at all.
- I notice that you can say phrase with text and number ingredients in google assistant and ifttt will take that text ingredient into action. I tried: turn on the $ lights, in which $ will say the room names but in yeelight part, we can not use that text $ to associate with the group we named in yeelight app.
If yeelight team can figure out a way to use text ingredient as stated above, it would save us a bulk of time and effort and hundreds of applets in ifttt.
Say, Turn on the $ lights, yeelights’ applet’s which lights can specify the text I speak into group, it’d be the best deal for us here.
Cheers and greetings.
