Api rest smart things

Is it possible to consume the current longitude and latitude of a device, through the Smart Things REST API?

Yes, since I see it is available via the API Browser from @TAustin. There is a link to the API documentation on the page as well.

Possible? Yes. In practice? I think you are probably looking for ‘no’ but it does depend on the context if your question.

You can get the longitude and latitude you configured for your Locations and possibly their linked places (I’ll check this) but that is all I can think of. Mobile Presence doesn’t include the geolocation and the SmartTags allow for it with a capability but don’t populate it.

However there is a capability there if anyone wants to use it and can find a use for it that doesn’t have privacy issues to address.
