Multiple device support

All commands that interact with a Nest can either use the default device from your config file or you can specify a device ID e.g.

./nerdnest temp 70
./nerdnest temp 75 ku34h5kjefhkdsjfhsdf
./nerdnest status
./nerdnset status ku34h5kjefhkdsjfhsdf

To set the default device, even you only have one, run the setdefault command:

./nerdnest setdefault
Nest: raY9xdYrYY036u2rgaeP_lJ
Kitchen: ku34h5kjefhkdsjfhsdf
Enter default device ID from above list: ku34h5kjefhkdsjfhsdf

Configuration keys

accesstoken = "ACCESSTOKEN"

mythermostat = "MYDEVICEID"

units = "[cCfF]"

Choosing units for temperature

By default nerdnest uses Farenheit for temperature both to display the status and when setting temperature. You can override this behavior by adding a configuration key called units and setting it to either "c" or "C".

For Farenheit you must specify the temperature in whole numbers e.g. 70, 75 For Celcius you can specify half units as well e.g. 19, 20.5, 23.5
