adding devices to google home

ok this one might be amazing to some . but, it an issue . I am quite serious about . Integration of new devices in google home app is disgusting . I have over 100 or more devices that need to be connected to google home. this has  me baffled . Why can't I add more than one device at a time to a room. when these devices are on a list at the bottom that says device not in home. this has become a daunting task.  For example I have over 50 feit devices.  because , I couldn't figure out what devices where not syncing I ended up . deleting google home and renaming google router. then started over .first I added all devices to the feit app. then synced to google home. I will only let me choose one device at a time . But the room they go to want 14 devices from the list. google will only let me do this one at a time. 2 hours later i still adding devices to rooms. Then to the next app rinse and repeat. it should take this long.  this can be better  . how about fixing it..

Hi Ynotdoit,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

I appreciate your honest feedback. It is truly a convenience for all of us if we can smoothly link our devices, however there are also factors that causes this to happen. With that being said, kindly answer these questions:

 

  • How many Google speakers are connected to your Wi-Fi network?
  • How many lights/bulbs, plugs, switches, cameras, and home automation devices are linked to your speakers.
  • What are their distance to each other?

Let's make sure all these devices are working individually when you control is using its native app, so we can elliminate the possible causes as soon as we sort it out.

 

Best,

Princess
