FYI - out now.  Just set one up already!  Very cool and nice to setup

Is it time to move over the nest  accounts Now Mitch?

I tread lightly on this subject because as we mostly know I still have a Nest TStat and 3 sensors as well have a Nest Hello in my project even though I bought a current Ecobee, sensors and a Ring Pro and some Ring Floods sitting on my bench. (And I bought the Ring driver)

 

Mitch - what are your thoughts (I don’t really use the TStat in programming)? Should I move it over to Google and ditch the idea of the Ecobee for now? The Nest Hello still won’t have any integration, but maybe I wait a while before I switch it out for the Ring Pro.

 

Current issues with old Nest driver:

 

Nest TStat:

No Home/Away Control.

Control of Setpoints are very sluggish

 

Neat Hello:

Zero Integration

You should do whatever you want. I would say at this point in time not enough data on new driver to tell you anything. I setup one.

Here is the old driver.. it didn't add scheduled events to the Nest schedule, but it for sure changed the set points "manually" via C4 when each was triggered. I had it across three Nest thermostats.

Somewhat off topic, but is there a way to have turning my security alarm system on/off set my nest tstats to away/home, respectively?
