    node-red-contrib-googlehome

    A set of Node-RED nodes to allow Node-RED to act as a endpoint for Google Home Smart Home Action

    Prerequisite

    To support the new Local Control API we now need a mdns server to allow the Google Assistant device to be able find the local Node-RED install.

    This feature is not currently enabled as Local Control is still in beta with Google, but when it goes on general release it will just work

    On Raspbian you need to make sure this the following package is installed.

    sudo apt-get install libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev

    Install

    Use the palette manager to install the node directly from with in Node-RED

    or

    In the Node-RED userDir (usually ~/.node-red) run the following command:

    npm install node-red-contrib-googlehome

    Configuration

    You will need an account here. Once you have an account you can define a number of devices. You can then configure a node to representthat device in a Node-RED flow.

    The full documentation can be found here. Please make sure you read the details at the top about needing to create an account and to join the Google Group to enable access to the Google Action in the Google Home app.
