Overwhelmed ;-/ Any Home Assistant enthusiast willing to program it for me?

I have to admit, I thought to setup the home assistant is not a big deal for me, since I’m pretty good with tec stuff. However, I already struggle with implementing my Nest system (Camera, Doorbell etc.), although I did all the steps described for the setup. So far I got my Hue light bridge working, and wow… my brother printer is showing up as well.

I wonder if some of you Home Assistant specialists offer kind of a freelance service setting up my system for hr/$$?

Let me know :wink:

Best regards,

Moving to Social because these questions are allowed there. (not here)

Hi Vincent, welcome to the forum!
What are you struggling with, maybe we can help.

+1, you can probably find some help here to fix your issues that look quite basic so should be easy to fix :wink:

Thank you for your response. I did all the steps described how to integrate Google Nest into Home Assistent, but when it comes to establish the final step and prompts me to go to a external page, I get an error message telling me to contact the developer of this application (me). Not sure what’s going on…

Best regards,

Are you saying you are the developer of that integration?!

Did you (not) use this guide: Google Nest - Home Assistant

Not of the HA integration (obviously), but you essentially setup a developer account and ‘project’ with Google in order for that integration to work. It’s been several years since I did so and I don’t remember running into any issues, but I feel like I’ve seen a lot of posts lately about people having issues. Wondering if something subtle has changed in how to set it up?

Yes, I used exactly this guide :slight_smile: I start to believe Google is trying hard to make it impossible to not be able anymore to migrate any of the Nest Products. For example, I can’t use the original Outdoor Camera, Indoor Camera, and Doorbell (5 years old) anymore in Google Home like I used too. With other words, $550.- hoes down the toilet. Thank you, Google to by Nest, and than get rid of it a few years later (no more competition)

I have done this and it took me a while to get it working.

What you may need to do is clear your browser cache and just run through the guide again, as 90% of the setup is done already you just need to land on the account linking page to link your Google account to your developed app, I suspect. It also helps to restart HAOS before the nest app install, or refresh the browser page (maybe crtl F5 to force clear page cache)

What I ended up doing was opening a text file and copying the info I needed in the order needed for the app setup within HAOS, so it would then just be a copy & paste job up until linking the account and authorising which devices it can see.

Thanks for the info. I’ll give it a shot.
