Nest
 
Recently purchased last Nest Thermostat (3rd generation). I was able to go into HAL Ultra settings, choose Nest as thermostat, press Authorize, get the stat's PIN code, enter back into HAL Ultra, and got a Link Successful response. However Thermostat does not show up in the Automation Screen as a new device. When I 'Add a new device' NEST is not a manufacturer choice and so there's no way to add it the Automation Screen so HAL can utilize. Appreciate thoughts here.

Jam,
I recently bought one as well and have contacted HAL. I know they are currently rewriting some of the nest code as we speak. I know they made progress, but still have some smaller things to iron out. I'll let you know when they release an update.

Hi Joe,

Which version of HALultra are you using? There is a new build coming this week with an update to how we retrieve data from the Nest cloud server which will be more efficient. There is also a fix for our Celsius customers...

You should see a screens like the following in Device Wizard:

Hi Tim

I'm using the latest public HALUltra build 6.0.39. Nest does not appear as an available manufacturer in the device wizard. Goes from 'Honeywell' to 'OnQ Technologies' on my list (no NEST alphabetically in between). The only place I found NEST was in the 'Settings/HVAC' screen (which allowed me to authorize/link (Home Automatic Living shows up in the 'works with' screen of the NEST app once linked) but cannot actually add the thermostat as a device because of the above. If there's a later beta, I'd be happy to install and play with.

Best regards, Joe

Tim, will we be able to download/update within HAL now, or do we still need to request a download link?
