Nest thermostat no preferences?

Why oh why is the nest thermostat such a pain?

So my Nest thermostat stopped working. So I deleted the device and try add it again. The problem is this go around there is no preference option to enter my username, password and serial number. Anyone know why this no longer shows up as an option?

Are you using nest manager?


Hey thanks! A bit convoluted but I got it installed. Had trouble with the authentication part but eventually got it.

It somewhat works. I do have trouble with changing the temperature from the Nest icon under things. If I change it the thermostat doesn’t exactly follow what I change it to. Sometimes I get odd value. Although the home/away and the temperature reading appear to be accurate.
