Google Home (Family Style)

Community Member

OK I will try to explain what I am looking for, and maybe, if not available, enought people will like this and google will develop this "Feature".
I currently have Google Home, with all kinds of automation. Video Doorbell, Outdoor Cam (x2).
Google Hub, Lenovo Hub, 3x Mini Speakers Zwave, and Door Deadbolts,  and Zigbee lights, switches, and recepticles. Also Smoke/Fire Detector. 
All works, all good, Called HOME under my email, and my wife shares it with me.
NOW Here is the "I WANT"
I am getting my son a Smart Lock, Video Door Bell and Mni Speaker. 
I want him to have his OWN Google Account, and HOME.
I would like to SHARE with him my Front Door Video Bell, and he shared his with me.
Still having Seperate accounts. 
This way when one of us are away, we can "watch out" for each others Home.
It would be nice to share other things such as Smoke/Fire Detector/Alarms
Door Locks, and other Cams.
BUT also NOT share certain things as well 
In other words I don't want a "all or nothing" solution, But a Pick and choose what each can share.
That was we can keep private, what we want, and share what we want.
Make Sense? Can this be done Now? Good Idea? Have Suggestions

Right now, if you are invited as a member of a home, it's all or nothing. Best you can do right now is invite someone while your on vaction, and then delete them when you come back.

I would think it would be a big "I want" feature for Google. But somehow they don't care about what the public wants it's only what makes Google money.
