    Default Google Home and evohome Wifi controller?

    Google Home will be available in the UK from 6th April 2017 and Google state that the Home device is compatible with (some) Honeywell thermostats... namely the "Total Connect Comfort thermostats (according to the Google Home Support page here)

    Does anyone know whether this means that it will be compatible with the evohome WiFi Connected Controller (ATC928G3000)?

    (Or will we have to cross our fingers and hope that there's an update coming to make it work with the evohome WiFi controller?)

    Thanks.

    My money is on, it will be supported. Evohome is Honeywell's flagship home thermostat.

    This is in the works - Google are testing right now. This is with Google.

    Is this still being tested? I see US TCC listed but not UK. It's getting cold now so this would be useful :-)

    @Rameses Do you have an update on this? I was really hoping that I would be able to control my heating either via Smartthings or Google home. But so far I am put of luck for both

    Its nearly there - we had some issues where Google couldn't handle our definition of 'off' vs their definition - along with the fact we came close to publishing, then they moved to their newer platform. I am told we are in the final straight and there have been some minor Q's in last few days - but we are over the hump. But the ball is in their court so we are waiting for them.

    Hi @Rameses

    Did this support for evohome get anywhere?

    Good news - literally yesterday - we were asked by Google for the icon to display in the skills (or whatever they call it) - so looks like we passed and they have done all their stuff

    Once we provide logo/image - then I think we just get published.

    Any news on SmartThings? Or shouldn't I ask?

    I'm interested as a developer myself, how do Alexa and Google get access to your Evo system? Do they use the same API the homebrew developers do, or a super-secret one? Is their QC process for a "skill" just testing your API works and slapping an icon on it?
