To all my Nest contributors,

Nest is experiencing some issues with their servers as indicated here:

You can also check their twitter feed here:




I have seen a couple of examples of the myNext Tstat and decided to jump in and buy it. I guess I didn’t read it carefully (i expected apps not code) but went a head anyway. I successfully built the device handler and app and I can see them on the web (at but not on my android device. I did notice that under the app attributes the location field is blank. If that is the problem how do I set it to home. Your work looks nice. Thanks in advance.

I’m sorry but I don’t know which location and which app you’re talking about…

First, did you follow all the prerequisites and the installation steps at the github under the readme file?

If it’s the SmartThings’ location, then you need to follow the steps below:

I hope that you do understand that the Nest Device Handler is for the SmartThings classic mobile app…
After a successful install, you’ll be able to see the Nest Tstat under Things in the ST classic app.

This install limitation is indicated at my store, in the prerequisites at the github, and at the ST community wiki

If you have further questions, you can email me at as it’s easier to get the context thru gmail conversations.


“Mynextmanager” Just installed all the device handlers and smart app in smartthings classic app, i could see the devices but cant see video thermostat doesn’t show any values. Any tips?

(Yves Racine) #135


As indicated in my previous post, you need to follow the prerequisites and installation steps at the readme (see link below).

Also, what do you mean by:

Do you mean the live stream for the Nest Cam?

If so, please refer to the troubleshooting section at the ST community wiki:

You can also see the worklow required to do the cloud-to-cloud integration at the ST community wiki here:

IF you thermostat doesn’t have any values and you’re authenticated with Nest, then just press the ‘refresh’ tile as indicated in the readme (step 5) or wait few minutes for the next async poll command.

If you have further questions, you can email me at as it’s easier to get the context thru gmail conversations.

Hi - I donated for the Nest products tonight and is giving me a 403 Forbidden message. What’s going on?

(Yves Racine) #137

Yes, the ST community wiki is down temporarily

Just purchase My Next Manager package thinking that I would be able to use the Nest/Away feature to automate things to turn on/off but not having any luck. Is this feature not possible with your package?

(Yves Racine) #139

Hi, it’s not available as part of my zoning automations. However, you can use Webcore (rules engine) to implement your custom rules.

Refer to the webcore forum for more information and help.

EDIT: usually ST users want to use their ST location mode (Home, Away) to set their Nest Home/Away settings, not the other way around…

hello everyone, im in the process of integrating my nest sensors with smartthings. I bought the license for it but when i try to copy paste the code from the zip files to crea a smartapp i keep on getting an error. it says:

No signature of method: script_app_metadata_f128bf67_85e4_49a7_a795_85715578c476.metadata() is applicable for argument types: (script_app_metadata_f128bf67_85e4_49a7_a795_85715578c476$_run_closure2) values: [script_app_metadata_f128bf67_85e4_49a7_a795_85715578c476$_run_closure2@35a7351b] Possible solutions: getMetadata(), getState(), setState(java.lang.Object), metaClass(groovy.lang.Closure)

I copied and pasted every character. am i doing the right thing?

(Yves Racine) #141


As indicated in the zip file and few posts above in this thread, you have to follow the prerequisites and instructions at the readme and it will work.

According to the error message, you’re trying to copy and paste the device handler code as a smartapp. The device code should be copied to the IDE as a Device Type Handler (DTH) under My Device Handlers.


(Josef Bautista) #142

Yes. I realized my booboo. Thanks! It works

HI, any chance you can remove my personally identifying information from your reply post? Thanks.

(Yves Racine) #144

Sure, it’s done.

I noticed Nest now allows to share video with a passworded link. Is this usable for the Nextcam app or does it still need the public version?

If it has to use the public one does Nextcam share the link anywhere that can be searched per Nest?

(Yves Racine) #146

Hi, for the moment, the Nest APIs don’t allow a password link.

Please refer to the ST community wiki for more answers about the privacy issues:



Anyone know how to toggle Eco Mode On/Off based on virtual switch while using Webcore with this Nest integration? I can’t find the setting within Webcore.

What ecobutton? When I try to set my Nest devices to something within WebCore, here is my list.

(Yves Racine) #150


  • To set your thermostat mode to eco, just call the eco method in the DTH.
  • To revert the thermostat to its original mode from eco, just call the home method in the DTH.


P.S. It’s actually documented at the ST community wiki
