I'm sorry to announce that we will be shutting down the Esquilo Nest cloud service and this community forum in two months, on 12/1/2018. We truly appreciate the support and feedback we've gotten from all of you and wish Esquilo had grown into a sustainable business that we could continue to develop and support. To pay the bills, we've had to shift our time to consulting and contract development services.
Of course, your Esquilo Airs will still have full functionality on local networks and you can replicate much of the Nest remote features with standard port forwarding. Scott released the ESTP server tunneling source here: https://github.com/esquiloio/estpd, but it will require some SSL wrangling to stand up a private instance and to install matching certs on Esquilos. I started a similar exercise for the Nest source, but it will require a lot of work to decouple it from the Esquilo cloud servers. I'm up to doing it, but don't want to if there isn't significant interest. Please let me know if there is.
We plan to leave our base website with the Esquilo online documentation up. Mouser still has plenty of stock (https://www.mouser.com/search/refine.aspx?N=4273576448) if you want more boards. I would also like to archive this forum somehow and put it up as a static page. Unfortunately, the software we use to run the forum doesn't have an export mechanism to support this, so it may not happen.
Again, thank you for all your support and for taking a chance on Esquilo. We really appreciate it.
