SO MANY notifications when someone is home

Community Member

There are two people in our household, both with manager access in the Google Home App and "presence sensing" enabled. When one of us is away from the house, the other gets constant notifications that the other was seen in the video history. I realize we could turn off notifications, but that kind of defeats the purpose of using these cameras for security purposes. Ideally, we want to be notified of any activity detected when neither of us are home -- not when either or both of us are home.

Are we missing a step somewhere?

How do we keep notifications on when NO ONE is home, but not when one of us is home???
