[BROKEN] NST Manager v5.0 (Does Not Work Anymore)

Should be operational until Aug 31, 2019 at which point the Nest API will be shut down. There is always hope that google will provide a new API but who knows :frowning:

Have you opened the NST Manager and clicked on Save in the upper right of the screen? Then allow a few minutes for everything to sync.

It “should” be operational after August 31st too, as long as you don’t convert your account to the new Google Nest account. Many works with nest companies have not received further instructions on what comes next, so they were told that they can continue to use Nest API until the new Google API will offer the same or better functionality.

Yes but folks who set up a nest developer account and set up a token for use with
NST Manager will cease in August 31.

Ha ha,
I’ll be surprised if it will do anything except work with the Google home.
I bet alexa will not even work.
Google sucks!

Hey, hey, Google said they are “working” with Amazon, too bad that none of Bezos teams knows about it, much like most other “Works with Nest” partners.

Yes, many times. It doesn’t seem to sync and I still can’t use Google Assistant to set temperatures or modes.

I use a direct connection between google assistant and nest instead of through the google assistant - ST connection… But that is just me. I like to use direct connections from Google Assustant to other products such as Hue, lutron Caseta instead of going through ST. I disable the enable all devices to link to Google Assistant and only allow select ones that I choose.

I was trying to set up an automation with my Nest based on cooling temperature and it seems that the numbers may be a bit off @tonesto7

Looking for some help getting NST Manager to stay current. For the past few weeks it stops automatically updating every couple days. When I open Nest Weather or my thermostats, it will show an old date for “Tstat Last Checked-In”. It also isn’t automatically changing the mode based on presence.

If I hit the “play” button on NST Manager in my smartapps list (automations tab), it will refresh and work fine for a couple days before it stops working again. The app and device handlers are current on my IDE. Any suggestions?

I want to setup a remote temperature sensor using an ST sensor. However, since Nest is going to impact all of us with their API changes is it correct to assume this solution will be short-lived? Am I better of spending money on a Nest Remote Sensor? I’d really like to avoid that if it’s not needed.

@tonesto7 thoughts?

Something to consider…One feature that I find great about using Nest own temp sensor is that the thermostat reports the temp in that room. With a ST temp sensor, the Nest thermostat will report the temperature from the thermostat.

Good to know. Thanks.

This is valid for NST Manager users…

Hello all. Testament to this app, i haven’t had to come on here for a while. But now i seem to be getting errors. I guess this has to do with this Google issue and API? Will this no longer function within ST anymore? :frowning:
When i adjust my temps within ST they dont reflect on my NEST thermostat. Also had it on my night mode routine to drop the temp for the night but this is no longer working.
Any help would be appreciated thanks.

EDIT: so this is the error I see beneath my nest settings
{“error”:true,“type”:“groovy.lang.MissingMethodException”,“message”:“An unexpected error occurred.”}

Open NST Manager in Automation and click Save in the upper right of the screen. See if that restores everything.

yeah i tried that buddy after i saw someone mention that above. Ive edited my new post with the error i see

Ok, so i manually ran my night routine again ( after going into NST manger and clicking save on the top right ) and it now seems to be working as it brought temp down to my specified settings. However, if i go into the NST within “things” and try to adjust the temp, nothing happens?
The error code i see as well is annoying me because ive no idea what that is.
So is NST manager still fully functioning after 31st Aug?

As long as you do not migrate from your Nest account to a Google account, NST Manager May continue to work past Aug 31st until Google totally kills the Works with Nest API.

It would be good to see IDE logs on your error.

I needed to reset my nest token but when I got to the authorisation page I got the dreaded Oops! We’ve encountered an error. Please try again.

I haven’t converted to a Google account so I would expect this to still work. Any ideas?
