I finally was able to get ST to see my Nest Protect in the Device list, And I see all the information about the current status.
Although it does not show up as a “Thing” in the Android App. If I try to add it to a Room I get the message “An Unexpected Error Occurred”
I think? Someone please correct me if I’m wrong. When your devices (whatever they are) perform initial connection to hub. They exchange data about what the thing is and and values of certain parameters. Smartthings uses this data to setup your device and add it to your system. If anything happens during this initial connection (bad data, missing information, ect…) weird things happen.
Can’t control, doesn’t show up ect…
My guess is you need to remove your protects using the IDE. Then reinstall them using this device handler or remove this device handler, install nest manager, then reconnect your protects.
Just my opinion, what you do is up to you.
I had a similar situation where my protects were not visible in my android app. They were visible in the IDE. To fix it is removed the protects in the IDE, then removed the protect device software I had installed in the IDE, then installed the Nest manager software in the IDE, then installed my protects using that software.
There is no official smartthings one. Nest Manager is another custom device to interface Nest to smartthings.
Like @RLDreams said scroll up for the “Nest Manager” link. Go to that thread and follow the directions.
BEFORE you do that. Log into the IDE. Select devices, select your protect and remove it.
Then go the the Device Type Tab, select the Nest Protects software that THIS thread had you install and remove it.
It’s all in the post right above here made by myself and others.
So, I’ve read it all nad tried to follow the intructions with no luck. First I added a new Device Handler with the code from this thread. I also added the username, password and Mac-adress to the code as the instructions suggested but I think theres something wrong. The device wont work properly and I culdn’t find Nest Protect as a device type when i tried to add a new device. Please give me updated instructions because these wont work.
