Use nest thermostat Humidity in google home script

I  have a boiler for heating without any central air system so I have my nest thermostat tricked into thinking it's attached to an AC system so I can use the google home script editor to control a couple window and a portable AC unit. This is working great but now I'm looking to also control the portable AC further by placing it in dry mode when AC is not required. I can't seam to find any way to use the humidity sensor from the nest thermostat in a script so I'm wondering if it's something that I'm missing or is it just not possible?

OK, I have this figured out. For my starter I was attempting to use the type "device.sensor.state" when I should have been using the type "device.state.TemperatureSetting" with the state "thermostat.Hunidity.Ambient". Once I found the correct type to use I managed to get my script setup and working.
