Home/Away turn off/on based on phone and home

Community Member

Hi, I just noticed an issue with the Nest or Google Home app that doesn't allow you to turn off home/away just for one phone in one home. I will explain the use case:
My brother and my parents lives next to each other (literally, one house next to each other), and both have Nest devices (thermostats) and access to both homes but they want to keep the home/away feature just for their own home. Right now it's not possible to just disable my brother's home/away feature on my parent's home and vice versa.

If we can make it work in that way we have an issue if my parents leaves the home and my brother is still at home, it will never set to Away in my parents home.

Any ideas how to request this feature/fix to Nest?
