Confused about SmartThings--how do I use the code?


(Rob) #1

Hi,

Just got a smartthings hub (with my nvidia shield) yesterday. I installed the smartthings app on my Ipad, Noticed that it does not support my nest thermostat. So I then find that there are some instructions on how to create a way to allow smartthings to see the thermostat:

I’ve read through this a little but am confused. Do I Install the nst manager in a windows based system or is this andriod based? I see there is a code (IDE) kind of window - what application is running this code? This has to be a windows IDE - correct?

I am looking for something to download - but all I see are code samples to import - so confused.

The SmartThings IDE is accessed via a web browser. Nothing to download. You will want to follow the instructions to add Github Integration to simplify maintaining community developed code, like the NST Manager.

http://developer.smartthings.com/ should help you get started.
