I recently added a Eufy Smart Plug to my setup. It's currently controlling a floor light. However, Google Home doesn't recognize it as a lamp, so when I say "turn on the lights" or "turn off the lights", it isn't included.

How can I tell Google Home that this plug is controlling a light?


Google Home seems to figure out the "type" of an outlet via the name. If the name includes the word "lamp", then it's considered a light and will become part of the light set, and participate in the "turn on/off the lights" commands.

So, change the name of the device to something that includes "lamp", wait a while, and eventually it will be grouped in the "lights" category.
