@ludeeus Excellent stuff but I was wondering how this works considering random MAC addresses being used for BLE? Perhaps simply a matter of (explicit) pairing with the google home device but if so this requirement should be in the documentation.
@ludeeus I understand the concept but modern devices periodically randomize their BLE mac address to avoid being tracked (privacy) hence my question. From what I understand only when you paired once this random address can be converted back into the "hard-coded" version thus considered as the same device despite this randomization. Anyway will do some testing and revert back.
