Restating another person's question, why are we limited to 5 homes on our account? I would like to add all my rental properties to one account.
I own a lot of rental properties and I want to get notifications when a Nest Protect alarm is triggered. I can't get that notification if I'm logged into one account and the nest protect that is triggered belongs to a different account.
In the apartment buildings I own each apartment's Nest protect is assigned to its own home. This is because I don't want multiple apartments sharing the same home because if one Nest protect sounds in one apartment then the other Nest protects will sound in the other apartments. So it is necessary to have a home set for each individual apartment.
If I have 20 apartments then I have to have, as it currently stands, four different Google accounts with each account having a limit of 5 homes. It's not possible to be logged into all accounts at the same time on my Android.
Since multiple accounts are already possible it should take very little effort to push a software update to allow a much larger number of homes or infinite amount.
Please open a ticket with the development team so they might add this as a feature in an upcoming iteration.
I agree with your suggestion. Yes this is a community forum but this is something that has been complained about the many years with Nest and now for Google. Maybe this will get some attention as the "share feedback" goes into a black hole. It is too bad that google does not have a suggestion and upvote page.
