Hello, I know there’s plenty of topics discussing this but I can’t seem to get Nest running with my SmartThings hub. I followed all the steps on a youtube video and had 2 versions I found on Github that I added (Wasn’t sure which one to add). One is called “NST Automations” and the other “Nest Manager”. Neither work and when I try to selecting them in “My Apps” section of SmartThings for NST Automations, I receive the message" Houston We have a problem. NST Automations can’t be directly installed from the Marketplace. Please use the NST Manager SmartApp to configure them." The other message I receive for Nest Manager is “Nest Developer Data Missing. Client iD and Secret are both missing! The built-in Client ID and Secret can no longer be provided. Please visit the Wiki at the link below to resolve the issue.”
One other thing to note is for the “Capabilities” section in Github, it is blank for Nest Protect and Nest Thermostat which just happens to be the 2 devices I’m trying to setup. I authorized the OAuth for both apps as well. Can anyone please assist or guide me to the best guide/thread for this?
Got the account created however the guide says the next step is to add a product. I’m being prompted to create an OAuth Client instead. Sorry I have more questions than most people and I do appreciate your help jkp.
The last two pages of the nest developer guide above describe where you can find that info in your nest developer account and where to enter it for the NST Manager in IDE @ https://account.smartthings.com
Best advice, read the guide thoroughly and make sure you follow every single step. If you skip anything, it will come back to bite you later. Mainly setting up permissions.
Have there been issues in the past, yes. Solved now and working just fine. Have there been issues with APIs changing on you and you pointing-out to your users it’s not your issue, yes. At least in the case of the NST Manager many people came to the forefront to help resolve the issues, for free.
Thank you for your replies. Is there a quick guide or video on how to do this? I’ve spent all day trying to figure out how to setup this thing and am about to give up. I’m surprised there really isn’t any videos or guides online. Thanks.
How much do you value your time? With my MyNextManager, you don’t need to create a developer account and set up different permissions… BTW, if you make some mistakes during the process, the DTHs won’t work normally later…
yes I’m interested in using MyNextManager however I’m still not sure how this works. There’s a contribute selection for $20 and then there’s a separate link that says: “link to GitHub”. Do I simply pay the $20 and it guides me on the steps? I’m not really knowledgeable with GitHub.
