Google Home - Controlling Fan Speeds

Google Home in its current configuration does not allow the control of Fan speeds. Google home supports On/Off functionality of the ceiling fan. 

When turning the fan on with Google home the default speed will be the mid speed of your Fan

The same applies to the ceiling fan light

  • Will this ever be updated to allow speed control? Or at least will IFTTT be updated to allow speed control so we could set up a command that way?

  • Google Home supports dimming of lights. Latching dim levels to fan speeds would be the proper way to handle this. Here are the commands Google accepts for dimmable lights:

    Dim or brighten a light: “Hey Google, dim the [light name].”, “Hey Google, brighten the [light name].”
    Set a light brightness to a certain percentage: “Hey Google, set [light name] to 50%.”
    Dim or brighten lights by a certain percentage: “Hey Google, dim/brighten [light name] by 50%.”

  • I have a Google Home Mini. I'm unable to dim the lights or control the fan speeds with my Bond also. I have a Hunter ceiling fan with a universal Hampton Bay remote. I've also noticed that if the light is on and I tell the Google Home Mini to turn off all of the lights, that all the lights, in the house, will turn off, including the ceiling fan lights. But the ceiling fan Lights turn back on. I have to tell Google to turn off the ceiling fan in order to turn the lights off to keep them off. I'm hoping that Bond will fix this issue in the near future.

  • Support for changing speeds is definitely needed. Please add.

  • +1 on the changing speeds. just got it and it's one of the things I was hoping to control from bed or from the pool for my lanai fans.

    Edit: that is with an Minka Aire fans and Google Home. 

    Also, I believe Smartthigns integration would get this working.
