"Too many requests to Nest" when trying to update thermostat?


#1

Sometimes when I’m trying to update my Nest on the Afero app (I’m using Android), after a while I get the message:

“Too many requests to Nest”

what’s the deal with this message? Can I clear it?

Hey Mike…

Every time you send a temperature update request to Nest, it causes the thermostat to “wake up” and change it’s temperature setting…This can impact battery life apparently, so Nest limits the number of times per hour you can update a thermostat remotely via their APIs.

Our testing seems to indicate about 10 changes are OK, then the throttle message clears up in about an hour or so. Under normal usage it shouldn’t be a problem. Anyhow, here’s the link to Nest for more details:
