Hello Cayenne Community!
It is with great pleasure–and lots of coffee–that we are announcing the release of Cayenne’s BRING YOUR OWN THING (BYOT) API. This is the initial Beta release, we are planning on releasing additional enhancements and bug fixes in coming weeks.
What’s so cool about the BYOT API?
You can add ANY board or device to Cayenne.
It uses the MQTT Protocol - perfect for IoT devices that get deployed in the field and often run on battery power and on constrained networks.
It’s completely FREE.
We have great documentation for you to get started with your device immediately.
Here’s how to get started
And don’t forget to check out the docs section!
Downloading historical data is not available yet for devices using the API, but will be available soon.
Only a select number of data types are supported for this initial release, they are: DIGITAL, ANALOG, BAROMETRIC PRESSURE, BATTERY, LUMINOSITY, PROXIMITY, RELATIVE HUMIDITY, TEMPERATURE, VOLTAGE. There will be many more data types supported in near future. Read about data types here.
Triggers from a device on using MQTT API to a Raspberry Pi is not working, will be fixed soon.
