Exclude devices from sync with Google Home

I regularly make use of multiple virtual devices to control one physical device.
It would be great if I could exclude the physical device from syncing with Google Home, so I could only control the device using the virtual devices.
In addition it would also be nice to be able to hide a physical device in Homey so it would only be visible in flow cards.

As a workaround to hide it in Google Home I created a second Home (called Hidden) and moved all the duplicate or unwanted devices there. But I would still like a better option, both in Google Home and Homey.

@Edwin_D,

Thanks for the suggestion. So when I place devices in a second home they will not be recognized and controlled when I “speak” to Google Home?

No, unless you move your Google device to that home too it shouldn’t try to operate them.
