Not sure yet, I have not opened it up. I'm guessing that it locked up, but obviously without opening the unit I don't know. That's why I was not sure if I could check anything without at least having...

It's a 2 prong plug on a Nest outdoor camera. The camera has a wire attached with a USB on it that locks into a puck looking thing (guessing this is taking the 120V and transforms that to 5V or so...

I did figure it out, but to be honest it sort of did it on its own. I think I reset the unit, took it off and put it back on the base and it's been fine detecting all the wires and working well...

I'm looking to replace a damaged plug that I have, the existing plug is marked 10A - 125V, however, I can only find 15A plugs available locally. All else being equal, is it OK to change the plugs?...

Dang it, looks like it is still the W wire that is causing issues. It's seated fully, the wire itself is clean (I cut a new end on it). Is there a way to test the W wire functionality? Looks like...

I think that the Nest Learning thermostat is also programmable in the same way as the E. This has no ring, but a touch slider on the side. Included documentation is minimal at best, I'll hunt around...

I didn't see anywhere in the nest set up to set either heat pump with back up, or *O/B as cooling. Not sure if that's available on this version, although I would assume it must be somewhere. I'll dig...
