Yardian Controller in Google Home allows you to use the Google Home App to run Google Home Device Traits, specifically Sprinkler Traits with your Yardian. You can also run Google Home Device Traits with Google Assistant. The roles of Googe Home and Google Assistant are outlined in this diagram:
To run Google Home Sprinkler Traits, you can use the controls in Google Home App. There's only one "run button/stop button" currently available in Google Home App.
- "run button": once you click the "run button", the pre-defined Yardian Instant Control from the Yardian App will be executed.
- "stop button": if you click the "stop button", the currently running task on a certain zone will be skipped. And if there are multiple zones defined in the Yardian Instant Control, the next watering task for the next zone will continue.
You can also use Google Assistant and say commands for the Google Home Sprinkler Traits, like:
"OK Google, start watering". (This is like using the "run button" in Google Home App)
"OK Google, stop watering". (This is like using the "stop button" in Google Home App)
If you need to run a specific zone, you can say:
"OK Google, start watering in front yard". (You need to say "stop watering" for this watering task to stop because "duration" is currently not supported in Google Home Sprinkler Traits. Otherwise, this watering task will be ended in one hour)
