New to Google Home

I won a Google Home and it should be arriving soon.  If I want to be able to control my Insteon lights through my ISY I will need to get the ISY Portal, correct?  I don't currently have that module.  Is the ISY Portal good for anything else?

 

Thanks

Yes it is. Besides allowing for use of IFTTT, the portal provides a secure off-site connection to your ISY without having to set up your router nor install a security certificate.

I just noticed that there is a way to connect with Universal Devices and also with Mobilinc.  I don't need both for Google Home, right?  I do use Mobilinc on my Galaxy S7 Edge to control my ISY.  That all stays the same.  If I choose between them for Google Home, is one better than the other?

Thanks

This is based on the portal you subscribe to, not the app you use.

 

If you subscribe to 'Mobilinc Connect' - you need to connect Google Home with Mobilinc.

 

If you subscribe to 'ISY Portal' - you need to connect Google Home to Universal Devices.

 

If you don't subscribe to either portal, neither will work...
