    Hey Chis,

    This is an interesting use case and I'd love to learn a bit more about it.  It sounds like you have one system (guessing central heat or heat/cool) servicing a home thats been split into two residences?  Are you using this with a smart thermostat and if so, which one?  I have a few ideas but I'd love to get a bit more clarification before making them.

    I have the same situation with an inlaw apartment in the basement.  When I go away on a trip, she stays home, but only in her apartment.

    We have a Nest E that's located in the upper unit (mine). The furnace serves two units, an upstairs and a downstairs. After migrating to Google Home, it appears that only phones logged into the primary account holder's nest account can be used for home/away. What I'd like is to setup two groups (the downstairs living room and bedroom each have a puck and a vent, and all the upstairs rooms have a puck and a vent); when our downstairs neighbors leave their vents should go inactive, when no one is home upstairs the upstairs vents should go inactive.
