In Google Home I have registered my house I live in and have a partner who has set up their own Home. I have been connected to their Hub and also have my own which are spreatly connected to each Home. Things work fine, but if I am at my own place, and I say turn on the lights in the living room, it can be the lights in my home that is turned on, it can be that the lights at my partners are turned on or all lights from both houses are turned on. In other words, it depends on Google's mood what gets activated. It's pretty annoying that if I turn my own lights off there is a possibility I also turn off the lights at my partners place while we are both at our own homes and they get left in the dark.
Does anybody have the same problems and maybe a solution for that problem?
There seem to be some oddities and significant security gaps with how Google Nest handles "homes". For example, if I am at my son's home on his Wi-Fi network and open the Google Home app, I see some of his cameras and Nest Hubs in my Google Nest "home" (in addition to my own devices) even though neither of us is a member of the other's Google Nest household. It's quite bizarre and disconcerting.
Thanks for the help, @MplsCustomer.
@Karla1990, thanks for posting. I’m sorry for the trouble this has caused you, let me help you out. Are the lights named the same on both homes? If so, you can rename the lights uniquely, so everytime you try to control them using your Google assistant you won’t have any issues.
Let me know how it goes.
