Node-RED google home integration


Hi. Very new to Node-Red. I've been using your project in my home for a week or so now and have found it to be working nicely. Haven't needed to comment on here until today because everything working nicely.
However at the moment I find all the nodes have disconnected. Is it just Heroku out of action or have I missed something? A payment maybe? Would love to keep this service going.




Can you clarify what you mean by that? It seems to suggest all the wires joining the nodes have disappeared but I suspect that is not what you mean.



Nope, still free. I didn't experience any issues with the connectivity however they do disconnect once at 24h (not sure the exact hour) because of the dyno restarting and it may take up to a few minutes to connect back.
Are you still experiencing issues?



Still have the problem. All my lights have a red square with the word disconnected beneath them. Only noticed it today. When I send a command to google home it responds with "It looks like the [device] not available right now.
To try and fix it I went to the home page logged in and grabbed a new token. That didn't help. I still have disconnected devices.
Any help welcomed.



Sorry the word beaneth the devices is "not connected".



Have you tried restarting your node-red service? I assume you do have internet connectivity where you run node-red. Is there anything in the logs (reason for disconnecting)?



Rebooted my PI3 server. Restarted Node-Red. Check logs. Attached. Everything looks fine.

I see it's connecting. Wait for a while and see if nora adds some other log entries. Again, are you sure the device has internet connectivity. Can you ssh into it and try pinging google or something?



Ok. I can't ping out. I guess that must be it. Although I have no connection problems on my windows machine.



Ok it's fixed now. PI wasn't connecting via Ethernet. Had to connect it wirelessly and now it's working. Thanks for your help.
