You do not need to do anything to configure this app to view data from your Nest devices other than installing the Nest Add-on for Splunk (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3214/). If you’d like to see information about outside temperature, you can follow the instructions for the Weather Underground section below.
One optional configuration step you can take is to configure the TA-wunderground app. This will allow for some dashboards to populate different panels. For instructions on installing that app visit https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1257/
If you want to integrate that data into the Nest App for Splunk, you'll need to update the lookup table named home_view_city.
There are two relevant fields in here:
name - this is the name of your nest account. It can be found in your data under the “name” field.
city - this is the City configured in the wunderground TA.
Simply click the app in the App Drop Down in Splunk.
There are two reasons you may not see data in the dashboard right away.
If there is a visualization or feature you'd like to see added, please e-mail us and we'll see what we can do.
Email support for this app is available during weekday business hours (US, East Coast).
