API Interfacing

Your API should be able to:

  1. Return thermostat info when it recieves /status in the JSON format like below:
{
    "targetHeatingCoolingState": INT_VALUE_0_TO_3,
    "targetTemperature": FLOAT_VALUE,
    "currentHeatingCoolingState": INT_VALUE_0_TO_2,
    "currentTemperature": FLOAT_VALUE
}

Note: You can also add the currentRelativeHumidity and targetRelativeHumidity fields individually or together above if enabled in the config.json (read Structure)

  1. Set targetHeatingCoolingState when it recieves:
/targetHeatingCoolingState/{INT_VALUE_0_TO_3}
  1. Set targetTemperature when it recieves:
/targetTemperature/{INT_VALUE}
  1. If enabled in config.json (read Structure), set targetRelativeHumidity when it recieves:
/targetRelativeHumidity/{FLOAT_VALUE}
