I just received my Smartthings Hub yesterday and have been trying to set up my two Nest thermostats. Thanks to everyone involved in putting together the code and answering the questions. I’ve now got everything set up almost perfect with one exception.
I have my Nests set up with slightly different temperature settings when they go into ‘Away’ mode. Using Pollster, the Thing on my Smartthings app will poll every 10 minutes and then recognize this as “not present” but it will not change the temperature settings to match my Nest’s “away” temps. Is this just a normal and understood limitation of the Smartthings implementation? Or have I missed something along the way?
It seems to recognize when I manually change my Nest temperature setting when “not” in Away mode but I guess the Away functionality handles things a bit differently. I can’t seem to make temperature changes using ST in the “Away” mode.
Note: My Nest is set to Auto Cool/Heat. Heat is set to 64, Cool is set to 80. When “Away”, it’s set to 60 and 82.
