Just in case useful to anyone, I've just tracked down a mysterious hidden access point that has appeared conflicting with my Unifi network over the last couple of days and it's a Google Home operating with "Guest Mode" enabled.
Starts with fa:8f:ca which seems to be unrecognised in most MAC lookups.

Did you figure where and why it appeared on your network?

@soggystainz You can see them in Neighboring Access Points, this can also be a Chromecast device though.

Bloody guest mode of a Chromecast...I've already thought that someone is pulling surveillance on me for some reason. As soon as I changed the AP channels it changed it's channels, too. You can disable the guest mode with the Google Home app.

You can hide Google Chrome WiFi by sliding 'Let others control your cast media' off in Google Home app for Chromecast. But hiden Google WiFi still remains.

Thanks a ton @clarksn!!
My paranoia was making me restless. Failed to locate it even with my RPi wardrive setup and only ended up near the AC Lite (didn't suspect the Google Mini nearby). I was looking up full MAC search and came up empty! Should have Googled with just the OUI.
