I I have SmartThings and hue light bulbs. They are both connected to my Google home app. So, now the hue light bulbs and other connected brands are showing up twice in the Google home app. If I delete the smartthings copy, it shows back up because I have not de-linking smartthings? I can remove the hue linked copy, but I'm worried then when I ask Google to turn off a hue light bulb, it has to go through the smartthing, then the hue app and then back to Google. I don't want Google to tell me I have X amount of things not set up because it's not in a room. I also don't want double copies in a room in my Google home app. How have you guys resolved this situation to your satisfaction?
I was just wondering what everyone's thoughts were on wake words for the Google Home and the Amazon Echo's. For me I think this is a security problem and a convenience issue. For security, say I have a lock on my front door or a garage opener that works with these assistance. Your front door or garage could easily be unlocked or opened by the TV or radio because the wake words are spoken on the air all the time. My lights have been turned off or on and even been changed to different colors because someone on the TV issued the commands with the wake word. And don't get me started on the radio or even friends or family that come over and set the Echo's off constantly because they call them by the wake word "Alexa" Convenience, In my home office I have a Google Home Max that I listen to music on all day while working. I want to add a Google Home Hub to the office as well so I can check my security camera's through the house, but I cannot because if I say "Hey Google" the one that can hear me best will answer. So if I want to play or pause music the Google home hub may start playing music, or if I want to see a certain camera the Google Home Max may answer. I've seen many, many posts for both Google and Amazon to make the wake words customizable, byt both companies refuse to do so. So what are your thoughts
