New SmartThings user here. I’m 3 weeks into this and I’m hooked already. I’ve already learned so much from the community here and I’ve got several new Device Types and SmartApps installed through the IDE. But I’ve finally hit a roadblock that I can’t figure out or find an answer to myself.
I’m using Patrick’s (@pstuart) device type for my Nest and it works well. This week I discovered Tim’s (@tslagle13) Temprature based Thermostat Mode smartapp and I’m trying to use them together. Last night it failed the WAF test when the temperature outside dropped into the 40s and the air conditioning came on.
I checked the logs and I see the mode SmartApp correctly send a “heat” command to the Nest. But a second later the Nest reports that it switched to “cool” mode which I was able to verify in the Nest app. The SmartApp did correctly switch the Nest to “auto” earlier in the day. I’ve looked through the code for both the SmartApp and Device Type and I don’t see any obvious disconnect, but I’m new to Groovy and the SmartThings API as well. Has anyone else seen this problem or have an idea what the problem might be?
