Discover. Code. Control.
Venstar Thermostat Local API allows developers to command and control Venstar thermostats from custom applications or integrate with other compatible systems.
Venstar Thermostat Local API enables WiFi equipped Venstar thermostats to be controlled via the local network. Venstar WiFi thermostats available on the local network are discoverable via Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP). Venstar Thermostat Local API is served by a simple RESTful web service and can be accessed by a wide range of clients written in different programming languages. Venstar WiFi thermostats do not allow remote control commands by default. You must enable the Local API functionality in the settings of your thermostat after connecting to a wireless network.
Simple Service Discovery Protocol
Discover Venstar thermostats on your network with a simple search command using the Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP). All thermostats with Venstar Thermostat Local API functionality enabled will be discovered even if configured with dynamic IP (DHCP).
