How to disable Smart Home API, if no Smart Home Skills are active?

Is it possible to deactivate the Smart Home commands processing altogether if there are no Smart Home skills active? I would like to put some phrases that sound similar to smart home commands but are meant for my custom skill, in my account. Unfortunately, my custom skill won't get the message, but the system will tell me "no smart devices found".

How do I disable the Smart Home Commands in order for my custom skill to receive the voice input? Thanks.

You raise a good point. I would also like to use similar commands.

What I have found that helps a little is to use commands that are at least two or three syllables. "Sprinkler controller" works better than "Sprinkler" ; "Receiver" works better than mute.
