Nest away mode


(Brian Schwartz) #1

I’m trying to get my hue lights to turn off when my nest goes into away mode, but I’ve noticed that if I set my best to away manually or through the nest app, it doesn’t see it, but if I use the thing wishing ST, it works. Is this just because of the workaround nature of this integration?

Can’t answer the why part, but have you tried automating it through IFTTT until Nest is fully supported?

Thanks. For some reason I was completely focused on just ST. This should work easily but of course would eventually love ST to work. Thanks again.

You can do what you want if you use my Nest device type (Nest device type with a bunch of new features) with Pollster ("Pollster" - A SmartThings Polling Daemon). My updated Nest device type exposes Nest presence as a SmartThings presence sensor and Pollster refreshes the Nest device on a schedule. This allows you to create a hello home action that will automatically run when everyone leaves, where everyone is your Nest presence sensor.

Thanks, I’ll give it a try!
