    Unable to connect to Google home app. Keep getting error: "Couldn't update the setting. Check your connection."

    Attempted to delete both greeni app & Google home app. Removed Google home mini from my Google home account. Switched wifi on and off. Maybe it's an issue with the API?

    I just attempted to connect them again and IT WORKED. If anyone at geeni got on the side thank you. Or maybe at Google. I sent feedback to them through the Google home app. Voice controls also working nicely too.

    Same here. The lights connected to my wi-fi quickly and easily. The app controls the lights individually and in a group perfectly. Unfortunately, when I try to link it to my Google Home, I get the same error, "couldn't update the setting. Check your connection." Hopefully this is fixed soon.

     

    Something interesting: When I copy and paste the authorization link from my phone into my laptop browser and enter my Geeni credentials, it says something to the effect of "accounts have been linked", but then it tries to open the Home app and fails of course because it's on my laptop. With hope and optimism, I get back into my Google Home app on my phone only to find out that nothing has been linked and my Geeni account isn't connected. Maybe this can help move the troubleshooting process forward a bit.

    I'm able to set up the Merkury smart bulbs on the Geeni app, but I cannot link them to Google Assistant.

    When I enter my Geeni credentials into Google Assistant to link the account, I get a 401 error ("Your client does not have permission to the requested URL /services/auth/handoffs/auth/complete?state=[blah blah encrypted string here]

    I just tried linking my Geeni account to my Google account. It sat for a long time after entering my credentials, which gave me hope, but in the end, it failed. I tried a second time, AND IT CONNECTED! My devices are finally added to my Google Home app. I'm cautiously going to say that the issue is fixed.
