Google Home Command Fails


#1

For some reason Google home commands work for a while then they fail. The only way to resolve this that I’ve found is to delete and start over with new command. How do I resolve this?


#2

Please try to re-authorize your Garadget account with IFTTT.
Let me know if this doesn’t resolve the problem.


#3

That sovled the issue, but why does this need to consistently be done? It should be a set it and forget kind of a thing.


#4

Normally it is.
Did you have to go through this step multiple times previously?


#5

Yes. I had to remove everything from ifttt and re add it.


#6

Some time ago we’ve made modifications to make IFTTT authorization tokens never expire. Previously they expired after 90 days. Please let us know if you experience this issue again.


#7

I’m having the same problem!!! It is the third or fourth time this has happened to me. Still not able to get it up and running again this time.


#8

Jim,
Do you receive any error messages when trying to re-authorize your Garadget account with IFTTT?


#9

I am having the _same problem with mine. I have to keep removing the applets and re installing


#10

The issue still persists. I had to reset the connection within IFTTT again to resolve the problem. Please advise.


#11

Please try adding an applet with a different trigger like this one. When Google Home applet fails to run, are you still able to use the one with widget trigger?


#12

I couldn’t tell you. I’ve reset the connection and it’s back to working again. The issue is that the connection needs to be reset on a consistent basis.


#13

Just in case it happens again, try setting up a widget command to see if the issue is on the Google Home or Garadget side.


#14

Having the same issue with IFTTT - also unsure how to re-authorise Garadget account in IFTTT


#15

Paul,
Please go to settings page and edit connection.

Thanks again Denis - you are a font of all knowledge :slight_smile:


#17

I’ve have to re-authorise twice in the last week, this is getting silly now. Could you please add direct Google Assistant support?
