Mysensors gateway serial port support


#1

Thank you in advance for taking the time to let us know about your Ideas. We truly value your input and discuss each Suggestion as a team. It would be most helpful if you could include a use case for your Idea (how it will solve a problem, or add to the usefulness of Cayenne as a proto-typing solution). Thanks!

Tony,
Welcome to the Cayenne community!

I will keep your request in mind as I brainstorm what I’m going to do next with a Pi.

Again, welcome,

-Ian

Hi Ian,

Is there a way for the application to read data from the serial port?
The reason I ask is because I am using the mysensors gateway and it sends sensor data via USB on the Pi in serial format.

For example all data is sent as 6 params separated by a semicolon and ending with a new line "\n"
The first param is the sensor node ID, second is the sensor type (temperature = 7, humidity = 8, etc.) and the very last param is the data. So for a temperature 75.2 deg F.

Hope this helps as it’s a very easy protocol to work and parse.

Thanks,
Tony

Thanks for the question!
Think of me as a Wal-Mart greeter, that said lets see if I can point you in the right direction to find your answer-

@bestes BENNY! HELP!

Lets see if that works…

Have a great day Tony,

Hey Tony!,

So we’ve received this request multiple times and we definitely see the value of allowing serial data to be read and displayed in Cayenne. There are some pretty cool features we’re implementing before we get to this though, like Arduino integration.

So in short, this is coming!

Haha, it worked!
