How can I configure Climate to use the Nest beta interface?


DISCLAIMER

You must have been granted beta access by Nest. I have no control over this and dont even have beta access myself.

I cannot garauntee that every Cliamte feature will work in the Nest beta environment. If you do notice any issues, please inform us about the issue so that we can implement a fix before it breaks in production.

In the v1.2 update, there is a hidden preference that allows you to flip a switch and make Climate point to Nest’s beta user interface. Since this is a hidden preference, you will need to run the following command via Terminal.app (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app).

Simply copy/paste the following command into Terminal.app and hit enter. You will then need to quit and relaunch Climate. Verify that the url to your Nest beta account is correct.

defaults write com.joeworkman.mac.mynest ClimateConnectUrl https://home.ft.nest.com

In order to reset Climate back to its original state, simply run the following command in Terminal.app.

defaults write com.joeworkman.mac.mynest ClimateConnectUrl https://home.nest.com
