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
