How to retrieve the list of devices that is linked to an account

Hello All,

I was thinking about creating a skill that could call the lighting and thermostat api's from code. However I have run into a snag. At the time the user starts the skill for the first time they have some setup work to do. Now for this I would like to provide them with a list of devices they already use for other purposes and possibly also groups they have made (so in short the items under the smart home tab of the alexa app).

Is there an API that provides this information (after authentication obviously)?

Regards,

Rob
