Smart Plugs on Google Home/Telstra Home


I've noticed that all Smart Power Plugs are currently recognised in the Telstra Home and Google Home apps as Lights. Is there any chance of updating the code on the Telstra Home Hub for the Smart Power Plugs to be recognised as "Switch" so they show up as Power Plugs, not Lights?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

They are recognised as "Smart Bulbs or Plugs" as they are functionally the same (they are both switches).

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

This is currently a platform limitation.
