Custom Functions / Re: Automatic Humidity No Longer Working for Me
Last post by jmdeike -
It looks as though the issue is resolved, as it started working later this week.  Settings have been updating and I have been receiving the update emails.  Thank you for your help if there's something that you did on your end.

I reported the same on the Nest forums yesterday and saw that you updated this thread today as I noticed it was still not working as well. I also noticed that around the same time that this function went down I stopped receiving emails about history data being saved even though it clearly has been. Not sure if it is related but just wanted to add that little info as well.

Hello,
We are currently having issues with the Custom options. It seems that nest may be restricting our ability to perform these functions for you. I am working on a fix. In the meantime if you can still manually login to save your usage history.

Automatic Humidity Control stopped working for me too. The last time it worked was October 27. No more notifications or humidity adjustments. I had to lower humidity manually. Please fix.

Custom Functions / Automatic Humidity No Longer Working for Me
Last post by jmdeike -
I have used the automatic humidity custom function this past winter, but ended up turning off my account this summer due to troubleshooting a Nest issue.  Now that I have logged back in and setup the Humidity Custom Function, it does not seem to be working. 

The humidity setting does not change from the current 35% that it's set at, no matter what the outside temp is.  I have the default settings for the humidity per outside temp. 

I also do not get any emails of settings changes, which is to be expected, as the humidity setting does not change.

See screenshots below of settings and Thermostat Status.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

General Discussion / Disable a notification
Last post by mshilko -
How do I disable the following email notification.  I do not see an option for it.

The thermostat named (  Hallway ) reports that the nest tried to increase the humidity higher than your setting. As per your request, the action has been blocked because your humidity has reached your desired setting.

I had the setting " If we detect a possible AC unit failure, send you an email and turn your AC off. " turned on and everytime my nest goes from an Away setting of 78 to a home setting of 74, it shuts my AC off.  Not sure exactly how that is supposed to work, but had to disable as it was turning the system off when I really want it on.  When going from eco to home.

I figured it out.  When I create a "Custom Where" name, regardless of what it is, it displays the hex characters.  When I use one of the included stock names, it displays just fine.  The custom option is founds at the bottom of the where dropdown in the setting menu.

FYI: It is working now.  I did change the name earlier, not sure the exact timing or if relavent.

Hi,
I'm trying to figure out why nest doesn't always send the thermostat name in the API it's a common problem with 3rd gen thermostats and even some 2nd gens. Thanks for the patience while I check it out..
