New user looking for help connecting Nest & Chamberlain Products

Hello everyone,
So I’m moving over from WINK that looks to be going “belly up” and I would like to bring over my Nest cams, thermostats and smoke alarms. I also would like to bring over my Chamberlain garage door openers. Any guidance, links, etc. you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

First, thanks for replying. Second, with regards to Nest, I did not do the “upgrade” to Google as I wasn’t comfortable with that. I was told that since I did not do the Google switch over, that I could still do Smart Things. I was told I may have to se the older version of the Smart Things app though.

Any links for the Nest if I haven’t moved over to Google?


The migration isn’t the only thing - if you do not have a current preexisting valid account token already with a valid Works With Nest developer account you can’t get one to make NST Manager work.

There are other methods to make it work that use a loophole workaround and as such are very unsupported, therefore I can’t recommend it.

Looking forward to what happens when Google institutes the Works with Google program - but - they don’t seem to be in a hurry.

This should be of interest, although, again, on those particular devices you may not get much satisfaction:

How to migrate from Wink to SmartThings


But there is no support for cameras in your current product, is there, @yvesracine ?

No, as indicated in the thread.

The access to the Nest Cams from SmartThings has been denied by Nest (http error 403, forbidden)…

So after starting the transition to SmartThings from Nest, I have to say I’m impressed so far. The devices seem to react faster and the automations seem to work better and more consistently.

The only issue I have had is connecting my lamp switches. They don’t seem to want to connect.

What do you mean by transition from SmartThings to Nest?
