Adding Nest to SmartThings

Ok, I am attempting to create a developer account but it wants a company name and URL. What do most people do in that case? I don’t have neither and it says it’s a mandator field.

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 @

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. :slight_smile:

I almost have it. The only problem is I cannot add the products because it won’t take: as the Default OAuth Redirect URI. Is there a new URL for this?

Make sure there are no empty spaces before/after that URL in your Nest Developer Account.

There is an alternative where you don’t need to create a complicated developer account setup:

However it costs. NST Manager is free and the free support for it here in this forum is exceptional.

Yeah sure, but for all Nest users out there, time is money… And, they may not want to have issues with state variables later on and lose their oauth credentials…

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.

So what’s your point again?

The state variables issue will come back after a while as the only way to solve it is to reinstall the DTHs and service manager:

My design doesn’t rely on some extensive use of state variables, so there’s no need for support from the start…

Again, we’ll all know that time is money and reliability is key…

Good luck with your free solutions…

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.

Hi, all the prerequisites and installation steps are described here:

The link for the $20 contribution is here:

No github integration is required…

The steps should take you less than 10 minutes if you are familiar with ST…

I purchased it however it’s been downloading for over 10 minutes on my iMac. Does this only work with PC?

Did you receive the sellfy download link and click on it? Which browser are you using?

I did it using safari but read after chrome is preferred. I’m doing it on chrome now and it works however I lost 1 of 5 of my downloads due to this

Not a problem, it will be reset

The setup instructions state an email with a code will be sent to me. I’ve only received my PayPal receipt and a thank you message with the download link. Did I miss it?

You’ll get the code by clicking on the sellfy download link inserted in the email you’ve already received … It’s a zip file with the code and instructions in a pdf file.

You just need to follow the setup instructions that I sent you in an earlier post in this thread.
That’s it.

P. S. If you aren’t familiar with ST, please refer to the ST community wiki under troubleshooting for additional help on the installation:
