So I asked my best hub "hey Google, turn the living room lights on at sunset" I've since wanted to stop this and despite unplugging bulb and nest hub it still turns on at sunset and I can't find any instructions online in regard to voice command to turn off or reset this to stop the light coming in at sunset. Anyone know? Thanks in advance
Firstly thank you for your response and your willingness to help. This will not work though as unfortunately It was not set as a routine, but a verbal command to Google to turn the living room lights on at sunset, therefore there is nothing in the routines to delete. I'm wondering if there is a Google phrase to cease it repeating this action each evening
That's odd, despite being a voice command it should have been set up as a routine. If it's not there, then a factory reset of the hub would be the only other way to remove it, as that resets the hub to like new condition and would remove any commands stored.
If you want to be sure it's this hub causing it, then unplug the hub tonight before the routine starts, and if the lights don't turn on you know it's a "local" routine and that the factory reset will work. I hope this helps!
Thank you for your suggestion, I have hard reset the hub by holding the two volume buttons, additionally I have cleared the cache and then cleared storage of the app using my phone and neither work, the lights still come on at sunset. I'm baffled completely. The brand of bulbs are TCP there's no schedules set in their hardware either and I've also cleared cache and storage in TCP app nothing seems to work so it seems there needs to be a voice command to Google to turn it off
Okay well, that is strange again.. the last thing to try is to delete the bulbs from your home, and re-add them, use a slightly different name as well, at least until you confirm that they aren't following that routine any longer.
The reality is, If in fact the lights turning on at sunset was initiated by a voice command to the hub, the fact is even after a reset it continued, so it must be a buried routine somewhere.
The bulbs have been removed from the home and forced firmware refresh has been done on them. They have been re-added, I've even cleared my last 18 months of web activity voice commands using the account manager in Google none of this has solved the phenomenon.
It looks like we haven't heard back from the OP so I'm going to go ahead and lock the thread. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to create a new thread.
Have a great day,
