Need help resetting on/off timer

Community Member

My 29 yr old son recently passed away and had my whole house set up on Google. I have Google speakers, Nest, Google plugs, lights, etc. I know how to access everything, but I don’t know the technical side of it, and how to run it. I tried to find information on how to reset the on/off timer he had set on a lamp in my living room. Everything is set up through our Google Home app. Can someone help me find where I can reset the time?


Thank you!

Hi Jules,


Thanks for reaching out. If you are referring to adjusting the time on routines for your lights, you can follow these steps:

  1. On your phone or tablet, open the Google Home app Google Home.
  2. On the Home screen, tap Routines .
  3. Select the Routine you want to edit.
  4. Edit your Routine:
    • To edit a starter or an action: Tap it.
    • To add a voice command starter: Tap Add starter and then When I say to my Assistant.
    • To add a non-voice command starter: Tap Add starter and then a non-voice starter.
    • To add an action: Tap Add action.
  5. At the bottom right, tap Save.
