Thanks for your reply,

I actually wanted to get ADXL345 accelerometer readings in my Cayenne dashboard, just like how we get in ‘Serial Monitor’ and ‘Serial Plotter’.

Thank you

i wanted something like this


#5

I am having doubt in this part !

//Default function for processing actuator commands from the Cayenne Dashboard.
//You can also use functions for specific channels, e.g CAYENNE_IN(1) for channel 1 commands.
CAYENNE_OUT(1)
{
Cayenne.virtualWrite(1, millis());
}

@amruthrajsagar to send value to cayenne dashboard you need this line in your loop:
" Cayenne.virtualWrite(1, x);"
where 1 is the MQTT channel and x is the value you want to send . when you run your code it will get connected and add a value widget to your dashboard automatically. click add and change the setting as you want.
try the below code and let me know

#define CAYENNE_PRINT Serial

Thanks a lot, i am now getting values…Cheers,
i will now work to get graph :slight_smile:
