Webhooks instead of REST Streaming?


#1

Are you guys working on offering webhooks as an option to receive server-to-server events from connected Nest devices? Using server-sent events (as your documentation suggests) is a lot of work to set up when you have multiple servers running with a load balancer because you have to group connections and keep track of which node has an active connection to a token so you don’t duplicate the connection in a different node as opposed to a simple webhook endpoint that would receive an event.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for your feature request. The Nest API currently does not provide this ability. However, I have let our product team know about your request.

I completely agree with Mike, for making realtime applications, webhooks or some sort of MQTT subscriptions would be much more convenient!
