Can’t share all devices

Hi all 

I have a mini in my daughters room and 2 lights connected in the same space. 
It has allowed me to invite her, she can see the mini and connects successfully but cannot see (not will allow me to share) the lights. is it a genuine Google product thing or are they not considered a ‘device’ you can share?

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for visiting the Community.

 

Anyone who joins the customer’s local Wi-Fi network gets an option in the Google Home app to join the home. This action doesn’t give the person the access to the customer’s devices, but it sends a request to the current home members. All the home members have the same level of access. There’s no owner of the home. However, certain accounts don't have the ability to be a home member (Google Workspace (formerly known as G Suite) accounts and Child or Unicorn accounts). Visit this page for additional information.

 

Can they control it using voice commands? If not, are they getting any message?

 

Best,

Alex
