Nest provides sample code showing a server side integration between Nest and Twitter. With the code, developers can pair a Twitter account to their own Nest account. To start developers will need a Twitter API key and access tokens for both Twitter and Nest accounts. Developers can also learn how to handle authorization and erros, implement listeners to respond to changes in Nest data, use Scala to interact with Nest, read and write thermostat, away, ETA, smoke alarm batter, smoke and CO states and update their Twitter status based on data from the Nest service.
Hardly days ago I was moaning about how we will never get to the Internet of things (IoT). Electric imp seems out to mock my moan. The electric imp API pairs with its hardware. The hardware can be installed in an electronic device, with the example given of a weight scale. The hardware delivers a seamless wifi experience and then through the API links up the data to cloud services, presumably destined through an app for an Android, iOS or other OS device. The API itself is still in beta.
