Anyone with a spare Trane want to part with it at a fair price, let me know!

I just switched from the old Trane thermostat to the Nest so it's just somewhere collecting dust.

Hmm - I'm not seeing how to send you a private message. . .someone please alert me if I'm incorrect and that is indeed possible to do. 

However, seeing as though I can't seem to do it, if you'd like to part with it I can paypal you for s&h and some bucks if you're looking for that?  Email me:  av north side  (all one word)  AT  the domain for people that use google's email service.

I think you need a certain number of posts before you can send PMs (to cut down on spam).

Usually, you click on a username to go to their profile, and on the left is a "Send PM" link.

I also have a Trane T-Stat to sell, if anyone is interested.

I'm interested in buying your trane thermostat if it's available.

I did get the Trane and it's working wonderfully. . .I'd actually pick up another one for my sunroom if anyone else is looking to part.

A for/sale, or "looking to buy" section on here would actually be pretty useful I'd guess.

Back to topic - There's a python script out there that can control it and read from it perfectly. 

https://github.com/smbaker/pynest

I tried it out and I can read the current temp as well as set one.    Someone could translate this into a Vera plugin.

That would be great, that Nest is pretty nifty.  I bet a lot of peeps would pick it up if they could z-wave into it.

Wow, I wish I was better with LUA code. I hope somebody writes a nice plug-in. Nest has some Open Source info on their site? http://www.nest.com/compliance/NestLearningThermostat/2.1/

They may be using open source code, but their api is private. Until they release something to the public, you have to rely on reverse engineering.

With people already reverse engineering the closed api of the Nest thermostat. It is possible for someone to create a plugin for Vera. This has me tempted to work on a plugin, but I do not have a Nest thermostat and not sure I want to spend the 250 dollars to tackle this project. If someone can convince me that the Nest thermostat is better than the Trane z-wave thermostat, I may go out and pick one up.

I am not familiar with the Trane thermostat, but I bought Nest prior to jumping into Z Wave. The Nest thermostat has a proximity sensor, humdistat and looks great on the wall. The one problem is the damn thing doesn't communicate with Vera.

Hopefully a plug-in writer will jump in here and save the day. I still have a lot to learn about programming, so I think I am a way off from tackling this :( .
