Question about some of the thermostat values...

A nest thermostat using plugin v2.0.53 has some states that I'm not sure of...

setpointCool / setpointHeat - These two seem to be correctly tracking the high/low points that I have set on the thermostat
target_temperature_low_f / target_temperature_high_f - These two also seem to be tracking what I set (with the "high" matching the "Cool" , and "low" matching "heat" as I'd expect)

But then target_temperature_f ... it is actually a degree lower than the low/heat point, so I'm not sure what it is trying to tell me. (i.e. I have my nest currently set to stay in the 69-72 range, but target_temperature_f is responding 68....)

Re: Question about some of the thermostat values...

Ahh, I see what the code is doing. Target_temperature_f is only set if you're in exclusive heat or cool mode, not if you are in 'heat and cool' mode. (which honestly, I just have never understood why people don't always leave heat & cool mode on lol)

I've got an idea with an improvement there, I'll submit something to github when I have a chance.
