It's important that you have went through the entirety of the pairing process (pairing remotes, verifying limits, and pairing the shades to the gateway) before you proceed with Google Home Integration!

This guide is assuming you have already set up your Google Home.
The screenshots on this guide are in dark mode - your screen may look slightly different.


STEP 1. Click the "+" button at the top left corner of the Google Home Home Screen.

STEP 2. Click "Set up Device". 

STEP 3. Click "Have something to already set up?"

STEP 4. Search for PowerShades and select it.

STEP 5. Login to your PowerShades Dashboard account.

STEP 6. Authorize Google to access your PowerShades account.

STEP 7. Select your PowerShade

STEP 8. Assign your PowerShades to a home.

STEP 9. Assign your PowerShades to a room. 
This does not affect the PowerShades Dashboard! This is solely for Google Home's automation.

STEP 10. Repeat until all PowerShades are assigned to a home and room!

Best Practices

Google Assistant's speech recognition will understand most phrases you can throw at it. The most important thing to note is that the "group" commands are NOT based off dashboard, they are based off the rooms they are assigned to within the Google Home app.
