I love the way you can integrate other Kasa and TP Link bulbs and switches into this one app. We are really enjoying our Nest Hello doorbell and indoor Nest camera. I am hoping that they can come up with a routine that allows me to turn lights on AND off at specific times. We are going away for 3 months and it would be great to have certain lights go on and off at variable times to make it look as if we are home.
The clear thought is that things change. As they change they should get easier. My shoutcast was initially simple to configure. Along cane google home to make things easier. My version 1 shoutcast took a while to configure when I had to replace the in home router. The screen will dutifully report its inability to connect to the router, offering advice to either use google home app to fix or check the router. The home app will not find the unit to help it find a new router. Help screens in this app offer little to no assistance. Don’t give me wrong, I love the device. Just not the hassle of maintaining it when needed.
It never wants to work
Tried to change privacy setting. Now google home won’t control nest thermostat or stream radio stations. Unclear how to change setting to put it back. Time consuming.
Google: Nest Status light
Good to have
If it could just be reliable I’d love it
This device was so impressive I purchased three more!!! I LOVE the photos that shift from photo to photo randomly!!!! Helps keep POSITIVE MEMORIES AND IMPORTANT EVENTS REMEMBERED, AND WARM FUZZIES OF GREAT TIMES AND FAMILY... GET THEM FOR IMPORTANT ROOMS IN THE HOUSE!!!!
The Nest app did everything I needed until Google removed the ability to add my family members and migrated my account. This app won’t login to the account my Nest is on using my Google password or the old Nest one. It can’t “find” my Nest thermostat. I’ve lost the ability to add family members to my Nest. Thanks for nothing Google!
Why don’t you allow other emails to manage systems?
