I have a number of Google Chromecast devices. 3 of them attached to TV’s, working perfectly and showing up in Homey with no problem. They are ofcourse restarted regulary, as they get power from the TV.
I have recently acqiured some Google Nest mini also. The command part works perfectly with Homey. Both for normal turn/off lighting etc, however also for more advanced use including flows. It never fails, always do the relevant command (if google understands:-))
However, to have the google nest to say/play sound I have a problem. They end up as “Device not reachable” after some time, with the small red triangle. Normally after a few days, sometimes faster.
The strange thing is that they are fully working, they do still take commands, and are reachable in google app. However Homey will not send sound to them. If I restart the “Google Chromecast” app, they instantly get active again.
I have tried to look at the wireless network, moved the nest devices to the same 2G network as Homey to avoid any problems. However it does not make any differences.
And, the nest device are actibve on the network, working. Only Homey not able to see them.
Any good ideas? Or is this just a problem in the Homey Google Chromecast app, and I need to restart it?
