I wouldn't recommend this if your goal really is to completely code
your own thermostat with multiple sensors/etc, but the Ecobee Smart SI
now has a public API.  It is dependent on a cloud-based service to
fully function, but that service has an API if you want to tie into
it.  I have one and can vouch that it works quite well on its own (it
does a really good job with critically damping my hydronic heating
system which more traditional thermostats cause multiple degree
overshoots with).
