Switch from Mobilinc to ISY Portal

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Purchased the ISY Portal when my Mobilinc Connect subscription ended.  May reason for change was that ISY portal appeared to manage Room Information.

Got Google Home connected and none of the room info arrived.  WTF?  Tried pushing spokens from the ISY portal and a google home "Update All Devices" to no avail. The UDI documentation is clearly out of date as the Google Home screen shots show no resemblance to the current Google Home implementation.

Simple question: How do I get the room info from ISY portal transferred into google home?

Paul

PS Am I the only one that finds UDI web sites and the ISY portal, especially info regarding accounts, confusing and hard to use?

As far as I understand you have to manage the rooms within Google (same with Amazon Alexa groups). ISY room naming is only used by MobiLinc.

Has something changed? lilyoyo1 says it is working for him. I don't used Google anymore but am curious.

 

 

 

 

 

ISY room naming is not used by Mobilinc.   I understood it was used by ISY Portal and was the reason for including it in the portal. Only the name and GH Type seems to be getting set suing the portal info.

Sorry you are correct. I got confused with spokens which are used by MobiLinc but not by isy portal.

I wasnt saying it works for me. I was referring to having a problem with finding needing info on udi's website. I shouldve been clearer. I stopped using google for new stuff. Amazons implementation is much better. Plus I dont like how google is closing off their ecosystem so im moving away from them. 

I dont think they update their info since these voice assistants change quite often. Its hard to keep up even when you do it constantly. Overall though, the process is still the same portal side. You do need to move the information to the individual rooms in google though as already mentioned.

If you have a room named in ISY Portal (assigned to devices) and a room of the same name in Google Home - the devices will be put into the room automatically.

The room itself will not be created (to my knowledge).

So, create empty rooms in Google Home then try the sync all devices.

I used all the same rooms that had been using with Mobilinc, so they all already existed.  None of the devices ended up in a room defined be the ISY Portal.  I am having to go through manually and assign each one - the big issue that I thought would be fixed when I changed from Mobilinc.

Don't get me wrong, Google is a great system. I still have both. I swapped out my homes for Sonos ones and switched to Alexa. Amazon allows for better customization. I still have my clock and a Google hub but I had to move on.
