I am new around these parts. However, I have a question about the preferred way to integrate a Nest thermostat.
I got it up and running with the NST Manager. However, I also have the Smartthings integrated with the Lutron Caseta for my lights (could not get ZWave to work no matter what I tried, perhaps we just have too much interference with ZWave in our area). I see that Lutron Caseta officially works with Nest. Would it be better to connect Smartthings to Nest via the Lutron? Would that allow Smartthings to adjust the Nest?
Second question: does installing the NST manager create any security issues. I really did not follow all of the things I was doing with Github when following the NST Manager instructions. I want to make sure i am not opening some dangerous backdoor into my house.
(Btw, I am coming from Vera and, so far, really happy. Only took 2 hours to get Smartthings, Lutron, Amazon Echo, Sonos, Alarm system, Nest all integrated.)
