More functionality from Nest Smokedetectors

Hi, The Nest protect smoke detectors have build in motion detectors and night lamps.
It would be nice if these triggers can be used in the flows as well.
Now only the CO alarm, Battery alarm and Smoke alarm triggers can be used

e.g. motion is detected under smoke detector XYZ
This can trigger to switch the lamp on for instance.
(In my house I have Nest Smoke detectors in all the rooms)

@GBZ i see you just joind the forum, so i suggest that you read the welcome post here on the forum

Welcome to the forum!

Then you wil understand that just opening a new topic like you did it not the way. As the nest app is a app of athom them self. And they are not reading every topic ofcourse. So little change they wil do something with it.

And for the rest. Welcome

Also, NEST doesn’t give access to those values in their API.

The Nest API provides access to the following data on Nest Protect:

    Smoke or carbon monoxide (CO) alarm status
    Battery health state
    Last manual test status and timestamp
    Online status and last connection information
    Structure name and device "where name" (location in the home)

You can read more about it here

How does this breach the welcome guidelines.?? He/She is asking a question. What’s wrong with that?

Hi ks, at this moment it really doesnt matter any more, had a little privet dm with athom and basicly… they understand that people pointed members to read the welcome post or use the search option. But also they want it be possible to ask everything a 1000 times.

So please forget that post from me (its a old one).
