Other questions

Can I have multiple users using my Google Home at home to control my installation?


All users who want to control the Somfy Protect installation from a Google Home must first have their Google Assistant configured to have their voice recognized.
For security reasons, only users with matching voices are allowed to perform actions via Google Assistant.

How to add another user?

From the smartphone of the second user, follow the same procedure via the Google Assistant and fill in his Somfy Protect credentials, when requested.

Can I order my installation from multiple devices with Google Assistant?


Your devices embedding Google Assistant (Google Home, Goole Home mini, other speakers, ...) must still use the same Google account.
