    Solution to controlling Nest thermostats with Homeseer

    Recently switched from SmartThings to Homeseer and was dreading losing the ability to automate my nest thermostats. However, I figured out that via the smartthings -> homeseer plugin I could still control my nest thermostats via SmartThings "scenes" (which I then "execute" in homeseer).

    So for anyone out there wanting to automate your nest thermostats, you can do it via a SmartThings hub!

    I don't understand why the plug-in does not see the the nest themostat in the discovery and create devices, or am I missing something.

      Yeah, it doesn't see the nest thermostat as a device for some reason (not sure why), but you can get around it by creating smartthings "scenes" with what you want to happen in them, then the homeseer integration with ST can pull in and "execute" those scenes.

      It's a clunky workaround to be sure, but it's better than having to throw out your Nest Thermostats!

        I believe Spud said he will be working on a new plugin over the holidays.
