Hi @DGS71 - you should let the engineering team know of this feature request by leaving Feedback in the Google Home app. Google is don’t read every post in this form, but they do read everything in the feedback responses. The more people do that the higher it goes up on the priority list, but I also have a sneaking suspicion. Google is not going to want to de-sync from the home app.
sorry about that
Thank you for taking the time in letting us know about your inquiry.
I appreciate your assistance, @MrVacca and @@control.

For your thermostat, try the steps here:
Let me know if that helps.
