I took an indirect lightning hit yesterday, made it 7 years since the last one, and have random dead HA stuff.

My Aprilair T-Stat is fried, 2nd time, done with it I think, am looking for thermostat options, Nest is one of them but I can't find any trace of a driver, is there one still out there and does it still working? Would be getting a gen 3 Nest if I get one.

Thanks,
-Ben
I'm using the driver just fine, it should be on the forums somewhere. Also, I believe the thread protocol should be out next year so you can talk directly to the device rather than the cloud.
I went looking for it and did not find, seems to me Jkish was only PMing it to people.
im using it, too.

let me know if you need it.
you know, if i wasn't so vested into Nest right now, I would probably get the Ecobee3 with remote sensors.

there is driver for ecobee floating around, too, but ive never tried it.

I committed on a forum post of an individual who was attempting to use the Ecobee driver with the Ecobee 3 ... (s)he stated it did not work. Sad So I think the best bet @ the moment - stick to the Nest.
I have the Ecobee. The driver was not reliable and didn't provide access to the auxiliary sensors. I'd love to see a V2 full-on driver for it but not sure if there are enough folks/interest to pony up for having one built. I really like the Ecobee overall though and especially compared to the Nest, so much that I've given up integrating thermostat in to my CQC system for now.
Is the Ecobee a local connection, or is it also cloud based like the Nest? From what I saw, I don't think that the driver would ever actually even talk directly to the Nest thermo, all communications would go to the cloud based service.
Yeh, looks like it.
