Nest Thermostat structure: Add new data field


#1

I am developing a thermostat based application. I am in a process to define set of parameters for the sensor. Nest thermostat API supports most of the sensor
parameters.
Question: Is it possible to add a custom parameter/user defined parameter in Device Structure, if not is Nest
thinking to add such feature in future?


#2

Do you mean like a user-defined parameter?


#3

Yes, a user defined parameter, if the user wants to add any.


#4

Sorry, I just realized you actually said that in your original post, my bad.

If you’re building an application as part of your integration, my suggestion is to implement that kind of functionality there. User-defined data specific to your integration shouldn’t live in the Nest API.
