Activating Hue scenes via Google Assistant

I added my Hue bridge to Homey and can see that I can create flows using those scenes. How can I set those scenes via Google Home? Before I had Homey, I had paired my Hue with GH and could call them directly from the one of my smart speakers. Now since moving them to Homey, Google says, “I don’t know how to help with that”.

I have about 30 scenes that I could call upon. From searching here, it seems that the only way is to setup flows and add those as “favorites”? How many favorite flows can I create? Or am I missing something?

You can pair your hue with GH also. In other words, you didn’t need to remove the hue service from GH.

Well in that case, I end up with 2x of the same lights in GH once I add them to Homey

In that case, what I’ve done is create another home, name it DoNotUseHome f.i., and move the Homey hue lights to the new house.
Afaik this way only the original hue lights and scenes exist in your default home and can be controlled by voice command again.

Thanks for the tip! Wished I’d had thought of that sooner!
