Thanks for your post -- I have been trying to figure out for over a year if I could use a Nest thermostat with my Quadra Fire Castille pellet stove. I went ahead and ordered one to try it out, but so far no luck. When I connect R and W to the baseplate, the stove immediately comes on. Had you run into this with your Santa Fe unit? The wiring and control characteristics seem the same as the Santa Fe type you have. I confirmed it is 24VAC across Red-White, but it seems whatever is in the baseplate (I am told a fuse and some minor circuitry) is enough for the stove to consider the circuit closed (even without the Nest on the baseplate!)

I'm not sure if it deserves two stars for having had glaring bugs with IMAP support ever since kitkat came out, or 5 because they finally fixed them. But I must say I am happy they finally are updating this app outside of firmware updates and addressing the longstanding bugs!
