3rd party tool to log NEST data

Post  chongman99 on Wed Jul 11, 2012 6:19 pm

I'm a recent NEST purchaser and looking to do some research using the NEST.

I'm looking for volunteers to test the system as it is developed. The system we are building will log Temperature, Humidity, On/Off state, and other sensor readings from the Nest.

Reply to this message if you have are interested. (The board is prohibiting me from including my email because I am a new member)


MORE DETAILS:

We are developing a software tool to be used to study building energy usage.

It will log at a 10 minute interval the state of a NEST thermostat.
We are in need of volunteers to test the software and to allow their data to be logged.

Putting your name on this list just expresses your interest. You are under no obligation to participate.

*About the Project*
The Principal Investigator for this research is Dr. Howard Chong. Dr Chong is a researcher at Cornell University, and your data will be protected via protocols established when dealing with data.
Dr Chong has published papers about energy use and other environmental questions.
There is very little data on how people use their heating and air conditioning system. We have surveys that ask people where their thermostats are set, but people will often change their thermostat around. The NEST is an ideal tool to study this question.

Log output

Post  chongman99 on Wed Jul 11, 2012 12:20 pm

Here is a sample of the output that the NEST is gathering. I'm not sure if everyone's output is the same (there may be different version of the device out there), which is why I'm looking for volunteers to help with the project.

You don't have to code to help with the project, just be willing to share your data.

Yup, your network will be secure. The protocol is that I ask you to set up a new password for your home.nest.com account for one week, and then you change it back. All communication is the same as if you are logging in to home.nest.com. We are never in your home network.

Jimmy, if you are interested, can you please email me (hc757@cornell.edu)? I can't message you since you are logged in as a guest.
