Deleted my Nest access token --> Am I screwed?

While troubleshooting last night, I deleted my .storage folder, only to find later that my Nest access token went with it. Given the recent changes to the Nest API I haven’t been able to reenrol the Nest component, and I don’t expect I’ll be able to any time soon.

Am I screwed? Does anyone have any clever ways to acquire a new access token, or another way to get my Nest connected back to HA?

Thanks for your help.

Hassio? Snapshot backup? Normal backup?

Actually, I did the same thing, except I have a copy of the file stored on my pc. Do you know what im supposed to transfer back into my HA?

So it turns out that I’m not totally screwed:

  • My IFTTT account is still connected to Nest, so I should be able to use the IFTTT integration to control it.
  • My Alexa account is also still connected, and after using my Echo to control the Nest I had the genius idea of using text-to-speech via the Sonos. It works(!), although I’m not sure how crazy my wife is going to be about it.

This works also pretty nicely. :slightly_smiling_face:

I mean, better something than nothing. :grin:
