there are several threads about Nest related products and services (thermostats, cams and smoke alarm systems) here on the forums. Therefore I decided to create a new one, that the current relevant information is collected here.
The Nest API was deprecated / closed. So it seems that the Nest binding won’t work anymore. How should we proceed? What is the current state of Google smart actions approach - how useful is this approach for an openHAB binding rewriting?
Former Discussions here showed, that Google wants to be the smart home hub by its Google Assistant cloud based approach. If Google sticks to that idea and isn’t offering an API for OH, then it’ll be necessary to find alternatives, I guess?
I am using a nest cam and I like it a lot. The service of storing your video data for a few days is indeed too expensive (around 60 bucks per year) but the product works great: there is a motion detection service and so it is possible for us to use the system as a cat alarm: when the cat is waiting in front of the porch door, we will get messaged and are able to let her in. Anyway for context recognition it’ll be great to have camera systems with an open API available - any ideas which systems are available for that usage?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
