First off, I’ve been using @tonesto7’s AMAZING Nest integration Smartapp/Devices. It’s a really beautiful SmartApp – better UI than most (if not all) of Smartthings’ own!
However, I’m trying to figure out something that I would think would be pretty easy:
When I leave the house, I’d like to my Nests to “away”. And when I arrive home, I’d like to set them to “home”.
However, I can’t seem to figure out how to do this with a (Hello Home) routine. I’ve also tried to do this with Rule Machine, and while it gives me the options for “auto”, “heat”, “cool”, “off”, and “emergency heat”, none of these seem to be quite the same as “away”. Am I missing something?
I notice that I can set the Nest Presence device to “Away”. Does this set all of my thermostats to Away? Is there a way to control this function through a SmartApp? If this were set up as a switch, I could turn it on and off with just about any SmartApp. But again, I feel like I’m missing something.
Thanks in advance for any help or pointers anyone can give!
