I know that I can control a Nest thermostat from a Wink Hub (and app) by "pushing" commands to the thermostat (e.g. "turn up the temperature"). However can the Wink hub be notified when the Nest thermostat detects that I'm away? I want to use the away status as a trigger for a Wink Robot (e.g. "When I'm away, turn off the lights.")
Yes, apparently that's possible.
In this blog some possibilities of connecting Nest with Wink robots are described.
The first Robot, I named “Someone’s Home’. I simply chose the robot to activate when Nest Away, detects someone is home. I set the time period to anytime. Then as a result, I set the robot to alert me via email.
My second Robot was not as diabolical. . When Nest detects we are away. Wink will wait 10 minutes, then lock the door!
Thus, the Wink Hub can react to that away state of Nest.
