What determines how a hubitat device shows up in Google Home and what functions are available? Is it based on the driver you use or something in the device setting?
I have a bunch of zigbee window shades connected to hubitat using the Ikea driver:
In Google Home the shades show up as dimmable bulbs. I can control them fine with the dimmer acting as level adjustment. The problem is that since GH thinks they're light bulbs, if I verbally tell it to turn the lights on or off in a particular room then the shades get opened/closed as well. As a result I've had to place all the shades in the house in a separate virtual room. Ideally I'd like to have the shades show up as a window device (like how switchbot curtains show up in GH) so I can keep them in their respective rooms.
Yes, or you can use both. I still have my "vanilla" devices (switches, dimmers, etc) running through the HE integration and my more "advanced" devices (temperature sensors, fans, locks and windows shades) running through the Community app. Just too lazy to move them, I guess.
