Yes, you can use the same account to setup and control them but you'll need to create 2 separate "homes" within the app for your two homes, otherwise you'll experience issues connecting them to Wifi during the setup. Here's how to do that:

  1. At the top left corner of the app home screen, tap the Menu down arrow.
  2. Next, at the top right corner, tap Add +
  3. Tap Continue.
  4. Give your home a name > tap Next.
  5. Enter your new home's address > tap Next when you're finished.
  6. Choose if you want to use your phone’s location to help with Home/Away Assist for your new home.
  7.  If you have a non-migrated account, you’ll be asked if you want to invite other people to share access to your new home. If you don’t, you can always invite them later.

Once you’re done adding your new home to the app, you can add Nest products to it.

I set up a second Home location following these suggestions.  But something went wrong.  When setting up the second home location on my account, somehow I mistakenly relocated my Google Home wifi routers from the original home to the second home and I can't figure out how to move them back to the correct home location.  When in the device settings for the Google Homes that I'm trying to relocate, tapping on 'Home' doesn't generate any response.  Tapping on 'Device Name' allows me to edit the name.  Tapping on 'Placement' allows me to edit the placement, etc... But tapping on 'Home' does nothing. 

Any ideas?
