Hi guys!

This is the idea:

I would like to set Tasker to perform certain tasks when I leave home but only if no other member is at home. For instance, I want it to turn off heating when I leave home but if my wife is at home, obviously I don't want it to happen.

Is there a way Tasker can see if and how many Google Home members are at home? Ideally would be if the rest of home members don't have to have Tasker installed.

Thanks in advance!

There would have to be proactive communication that a person is home. As far as I know, Google home doesn't track family members that way.

For example, using an NFC tag at the door, or setting up a routine with Google home where family members say "I'm home" or "I'm leaving" type of thing. I don't have Google home so I'm just guessing here.

You could also set up a Tasker profile that when you leave, it pops up a scene or AutoNotification bubble web screen that you confirm before performing your "leaving home" tasks.
