I don’t have your name listed as a contributor so if it’s more than 3 years ago, I don’t see how you can compare the 2.
My ecobee and smartapps have more features than any Nest implementation, and I know b/c I created My Next manager as well… I know both Nest and ecobee APIs by heart, and I can tell you that my devices and my zoning apps are the most advanced & reliable heating/cooling solutions under ST.
I don’t know how it shows up on your side that I’m a contributor however I do have a receipt from your Yahoo email and I did contribute, install your Ecobee device handlers and a few of your smart apps however for me personally and my usage I preferred the suite made by storage anarchy better.
I only paid for it a few days ago.
And just so I’m clear it’s always possible that I’ll go back to using your app suite/device handlers if I find that there’s something I find worthwhile/useful later.
At least mine is still running strong, there are contributors that are still subscribing to My Next Manager due to its reliability and resilience to outages…I guess some Nest users want to play with their Nest devices till the end of the program…
But, you’re right, it’s the end of the Works with Nest program, and Nest is a rabbit hole (or more a dead end)…
I’ve always been a strong advocate of the ecobee ecosystem (which is growing soon with the addition of the ecobee cam, and the smoke detector), and I’ve been right all along…
Good luck with Google assistant, you’ll need it (as the limited APIs will make the Nest HA very limited)…
I didn’t know you are running NST Manager too, it’s a great implementation isn’t it? @tonesto7 and @E_Sch did an awesome job! Unfortunately, I am not a subscriber of your app so I cannot compare their reliability side by side, but I know I didn’t have any problems with NST Manager in more than 2 years. That for me is reliable enough.
Please stop trying to self promote your apps under the NST topic!
It is your right for you to think your app is superior. All I know is we (@E_Sch and myself) will never settle for good enough, so we will always continue to innovate based on allowing our users to tell us what they think about our work, good or bad.
Honestly, if we went around thinking we were the best, we wouldn’t have nearly 10 thousand users today!
Yes it will work until they turn off the API. I will try to make the changes to include the token and secret into the app so you don’t have to create a dev account. I might have a few hundred slots available still on one of my products.
What I use NST manager for is to turn the Furnace or AC off when the family leaves the back doors open. I assume this will stop working as well? Just want to say thanks for all the work over the years.
