How to Connect Nest Thermostat

Question

Dear All,

 

This is my First topic here, i am moving from Vera to Fibaro, I always wondered which one is the better controller, so I have to have hands on i guess to know which one is the better...

My first issue is my Nest Thermostat controllers, i have two of them, i read around the forum that there used to be a plug in but it is stopped by Fibaro to be updated or something, and I contacted Fibaro support, they said they are not going to work on the Nest plug-in because they are working on their own thermostat, so they don't want to support Nest in a way....

 

so my question is, since Nest is one of the most popular thermostat controller, did anybody find a way to connect Nest thermstat to Fibaro HC2 please?

 

Many thanks,


Shady

  • I moved back to Vera, to be honest, Fibaro is better in almost everything except 3rd party, which Vera is much better. they are compatible with most 3rd party devices and keep updating their plugins.... unlike Fibaro.....   even the ones which are supported by Fibaro like Harmony are half backed....

    Back with the same request. As winter is arriving soon, would be very nice for Fibaro programmers to do something on NEST topic...

     

    Is there any chance for HC2 to EVER have again nest plugin?  Or at least fibaro to provide a sincere answer for us to know what to do?

    I see here a lot of very disappointed people by this approach fibaro has taken.

    This is really SAD... Every year it's the same old story.. and same old topics.

     

    Fibaro it's iceblocked at 5 years ago. 

     

    They haven't done any new real improvement to their system. Look at the HC2 UI... it's awkward. It looks like a website from 1999.

    They will eventually loose appeal in the market.

    Update, I have asked Fibaro Tech Support again (1 year later) about NEST plugin...

     

    Hello,
    I’m terrible sorry, but there is no known date to make any changes in NEST Plugin. I just monitored this thread in software team, but there is no guarantees for now.
    I’m sorry for the inconvenience.

     

    Is anybody using other thermostats with Fibaro HC2, maybe Netatmo? Is it possible to have two thermostats connected in parallel? It is obvious that they have killed nest plugin without any hope of bringing it back :(.....
