We're aware that Google Nest is shutting down the Works with Nest platform and will be migrating developers and users to Works with Google Assistant. We're working with Google Nest to develop new capabilities with our Google Assistant integration for our customers with Nest thermostats.
Nest launched its Works with Nest platform with the tagline "Your Smart Home Shouldn't be Dumb." It's unfortunate that Nest is choosing to close down its Open API. The Smart Home shouldn't be dumb. We believe in Open APIs here at Flair— our API is open to any user who wants to tinker or develop their own integrations. The freedom to tinker is in our DNA.
In the meantime, we encourage users not to migrate from their Nest account to a Google account, as this will break your current functionality between Nest and Flair. If at all possible, we also encourage users to check out thermostats by ecobee and Honeywell Lyric. We've always appreciated their openness, and our integrations with those thermostats will be unaffected.
We'll be keeping users updated between now and August 31st, but please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
