Hi, I have been able to add Nest thermostat as Things in my smartThings app using the code provided here. here is wht i am trying to do and want to know if this is feasible. My Nest thermostat is located in family room. The study room is in another corner of the house. I have installed a smartThings motion sensor in the study room. Can I use the motion sensor in the study to tell nest to put me in home mode? Especially on the days when i am working from home, i do not want nest to think that i am away.
another question, I guess the smartThing motion sensor is not a temperature sensor. Which means if the temperature drops down in study room, I cant let the sensor tell the next to increase the heating? is there any other sensor which i can buy which can be used for such purpose.
I am aware that ecobee3 provides that option. was wondering if there is a work around nest
I also would like to know if there is any way to use a Smartthings motion sensor to “add” a motion sensor to Nest so it can use it to learn. Is the best I can do have a setup to tell the Nest I am “home” when motion is detected? My Nest aims basically the exact wrong way to catch most of the motion on the first floor of my house, and I have a SmartThings motion sensor that IS aimed the right way.
Not being programmer minded, could someone please explain how (in detail) I can add my nest protect and nest thermostat to smartthings. I have read this thread, and it might aswell be in Chinese. I know it is probably quite simple for those that understand, however, I am not one of those people. Many thanks.
