I'm having trouble connecting Yonomi to Google Assistant / Google Home ("Forbidden Error")

We are aware that some users are having issues connecting the Google Assistant or Google Home integration in some cases, and may see an error message with the words "ForbiddenError".

This issue appears to be occuring mainly on iOS, and may be the result of a bug in an older version of the Google Assistant / Google Home app.

If you are experiencing this, please try updating to the latest version of the Google Home / Google Assistant app, then test again.

If you are still experiencing this issue on the latest app when connecting through Explore > Searching for Yonomi > "Link" on the Yonomi page in the Google Assistant app, please try connecting this way instead:

In the Google Home app do the following:

  • Go to Devices
  • Next, tap on the three-dot "..." menu on your Google Home device tile
  • Then select Settings > Home Control > + button
  • Finally, select Yonomi.  You'll be asked to provide your Yonomi login credentials.
