@Cathal_S, thanks for your informative response.
Thanks for reaching out, @Lind1. I'm sorry to hear about your Google Home, but you cannot ping the device for its location since it needs to have power and a WiFi connection to function. I'll take this as feedback instead and pass it along to our product team. You can also share feedback about this feature request in the Google Home app.
If you have other questions in mind, let me know; otherwise, I'll be locking this thread in the next 24 hours.
