Couldn’t agree more @jarr . @jbumgardner the failure to make all statuses available via an API is a gross oversight that has me regretting my purchase every single day. My Nest Secure sits unused, and sensors remain in their boxes.
Also, while more understandable, equally as exhausting to hear from product teams making decisions around what is ‘safe’ and ‘unsafe’. Make sure your API’s and hardware are secure, allow users to opt-in to certain features w/ acknowledgement of the risks.
Emphasis on the first one being the largest problem, because I refuse to have two door/window/motion sensors in each location to feed data to my broader smart home system, I’m going to have to figure out what to do w/ my Nest Secure.
To anyone that has a smart home setup (from Wink/Smartthings down to HASS/OpenHAB, etc), DO NOT buy the Nest Secure solution until they actually address this with something a bit more than a nebulous “still no update.”
