Setting Nest Home Mode

I’m trying to do something really basic that I did before with the Nest 1.x binding and it worked really well. I’m trying to create a switch on the Sitemap that will allow me to set the Nest structure to Home or Away. With the Nest 1.x binding this was easy, I created a String item and bound it to the “away” feature of the binding. Then on the sitemap created a Switch to control the string.

I’ve updated to the Nest 2.x binding and now that doesn’t seem to work anymore. This is what I have:


String	NestHome_Mode	"Mode:"			{channel="nest:structure:mattamsHouse:home:away"}


Switch	item=NestHome_Mode							icon="present"			mappings=[Home="Home", Away="Away"]

This worked really well in the original binding but not since I updated to OH2.2 stable and Nest 2.x binding. Any pointers are appreciated.


I just resolved my own issue. I looked through the code in the binding, you have to use “AWAY” and “HOME” instead of “away” and “home” now. For anyone else who runs into this issue.

Thanks for posting this. I was playing around with this for hours trying to change my nest thermostat from Away to Home. Your post fixed it. Thanks!!!
