Hello, You can find a detailed installation guide at the following link: https://github.com/GuillaumeWaignier/fibaro/blob/master/quickApp/Nest/README.md This webpage also includes troubleshooting information. The gcpProjectId and subscription are only used for the camera and do not prevent link generation. To debug, you can check the logs in the Fibaro console. What logs do you have?

Hello Guillaume, Thank you for the QA, I am struggling to make it work. I added all the steps, but my HC3 is not trying to connect, so i am not getting the link. I got my code from Google and put it in the device variables, but that didn't work too.... My GcpProjectId dosn't start with Domotique....... is that the issue? and if yes, how to fix it please?

Hello. On my side, I do not have the problem of disconnection. Can you check in the Fibaro console if there are any errors before losing the Nest connection, such as 'getAccessToken() status is ...' or 'getAccessToken() failed:'? Perhaps, when the QuickApp needs to refresh the Nest access, the Google API is broken.

Hello Guillaume, One question if you or someoneelse who are using your app notice the issue I have, for some reason every a few weeks my connection with Nest thermostat is lost and I have to generate a new code to replace in settings. It is annoying specially if I do not notice notification to fix it. Thank you in advance for your responce

The Nest Smoke Sensor is not supported. Unfortunately, Google does not provide an API for integration.
