Ah ok. Next time I’ll go into nest manager and hit done to see what happens.
Is there a way I can get a notification when it goes down? Is this possible in core? It’s just a pain to having to keep checking it’s done what the routine has asked it to do…

there are notification settings in not manager you should look at. These can warn if unable to check with nest.

Tony has posted an update that is more conservative on sending command to nest.
Please ensure your nst manager, automations and device handers are up to date

Can the nest manager change the display and farsight settings? This would really help me out. Thanks!

I’m not aware these are in their API.

If you find parameters you want in their published API (developers.nest.com), that is what we have available.

Does anybody know the correct syntax for the ‘setNestEta’ command? I want to get the travel time when I leave work, from google API’s and use that for the 'setNestEta. However, I’m not sure exactly the formatting Nest requires.

the command is

setNestEta(tripId, begin, end)

and cancelNestEta (tripid)

Tripid is a string you make up

begin and end are string times, in iso 8601 format

begin must be > now, and end must be > begin (in time)

Thank you. I’m new to webcore and smartthings. Is there a quick way to format a webcore date to iso8601?

I expect in webcore you would use formatDateTime

https://wiki.webcore.co/Functions#formatDateTime

I expect the format string looks something like: “yyyy-MM-dd’T’HH:mm:ssZ” or “yyyy-MM-dd’T’HH:mm:ssXXX”

You might have luck asking some of this in the webcore forum

The documentation seems to suggest that the begin and end are just arrival window times and not the begin and end of the tip (which is what I would think). In other words, if you leave work at 5:00PM and are expected to get home 5:30PM,
I would think:
begin is 5:00PM
end is 5:30PM
but the documentation seems to suggest:
begin is 5:25PM
end is 5:35PM

Can you help enlighten me on this?

Thanks!

My reading of this is

  • if you are leaving at 5:00 and expect to be home at 5:30

you would set arrival window for 5:25 - 5:45 (and you would have done this around or before your 5:00 PM
