How do I add Nest Thermostat into ST?

Found the slider issue on Line 186
OLD: action:"thermostat.setHumiditySetpoint"
NEW: action:“setHumiditySetpoint”

Nest is working great again!

That’s it! iOS working again thanks guys!

Dang Typos. I don’t use the sliders so I did not test those. Anyways updated the code in Github with the fixes.

I no longer have communication with my Nest thermostats via the Smartthings app. The temperature values do not update, seems to be an issue with communication. Any tips on resolving the problem would be appreciated. Thank you

Try updating your code… Mine is working fine.

Do you have Pollster running? The nest does not update automatically.

Got it to work, I had to delete the device type and redo the entire setup.

I’m new to this community, so I hope I’ve found the right place to ask my questions.

I’ve attempted to add my two Nest thermostats to my SmartThings mobile app but I have a problem I haven’t been abel to solve. The app integrating Nest works great on my sons android phone, however on my apple phone (5S) the two thermostats appear in “Things” but when I try to open either one of them the app crashes. Is there a place in the code that requires something different for IOS? Your help is much appreciated.

I want to provide an update. I followed the advice of desertblade (which I read after I posted my question) and the second recommenation worked like a charm. So thank you deserblade.

Ok at the risk of sounding like a rookie (which i am) i was able to add my nest (2nd gen) and set up pollster and i still can not get it to update. Here is a screenshot of how it looks.

I had the same problem. What fixed it is adding the device type manualy. Then when you made the devicetype add the device. Then when you did that change the devicetype source code with the code you really need it to be. Then open SmartThings app en then configure it.

This solved it for me…

Is anyone able to control the nest remotely through smart things with a third-party temperature sensor in a remote room like a master bedroom? I currently have a Honeywell with remote control for the master bedroom and I would like to keep that feature but really like the nest for remote control and present sensing?

Use Rule Machine to do advanced rules. I don’t use it for what you want, but I have a buddy that does.

Sorry I ended up going with the Ecobee3 and love it for the remote sensor and follow me features. Also works good with Smartthings and HomeKit as well.

Is there a simple step-by-step listing of this anywhere. I have already been granted developer access, but when I go here:, I still get “Sorry, you’re not authorized to view this page.”

Email let them know. I’ve had that issue before they had to fix it.

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.

With Away mode it locks out the thermostat, so no temp changes can be made (defaults to the away options).

We just released a new smartApp Nest integration yesterday. No pollster needed. Should check it out:

All - looking for some advice on a pet peevy issue I have…my nest thermostats show up in the family section of the st app because of the presence sensor capabilities we assign when setting up the device. Is there any reason (if I am not using presence for switching between home/away modes) that I can’t remove that capability so that it doesn’t show up? Just don’t want to mess up anything I am not thinking about when it comes to this functionality.


If you switch to Nest-Manager (see my post above) it supports that functionality.
