Does this plugin work anymore?

I just installed Nest smoke detectors and was hoping to interface them to Indigo, but I’m unable to get the plugin to work—it fails when attempting to obtain an authorization key. I’m running Indigo 7.5.

Still working fine for me..albeit I haven’t added any new devices in years.

Re: Does this plugin work anymore?

A warning to others - I added a NEST Thermostat to my house the other day, and it is not appearing in the plugin. I looked at the JSON received by the plugin, and it's not included. Homebridge (separate install on my network) is able to see it. Perhaps the newer models do not work with the older API.

My new NEST Protects are adding correctly.

I did some digging and Homebridge NEST plugin uses a different API than the dated Indigo plugin, that's my only guess at this time.

Are you using a Google account for Nest or a legacy Nest account? (I've not migrated accounts yet).

It’s a Google login to Nest, which is a separate app from Google Home, let alone other Google products.
