Real newbie quistion about integrating MLT LMT70 in Cayenne


#1

Dear all,
I need to build a temperature controller that has a real small probe (max 3,8mm) and it has to be quite accurate (0,1 Celsius). i got advice from someone to look at the MLT LMT70 probe.
But i’m still a newbie at Cayenne and would like to know if i can somehow use this porbe in Cayenne, or do you have other suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi @adhulten and welcome to the Cayenne Community.

So long as you can grab the data from this sensor in an Arduino sketch file outside the context of Cayenne, you should be able to pass the data to a Virtual Pin using the Cayenne.virtualWrite() function and make use of our Custom Widgets to display data coming in from the virtual pin.

In addition to the linked documentation, we have a short tutorial video on using virtual pins to add any sensor data to Cayenne that you may be interested in.

If you have any questions along the way while you’re trying this out, post them here and we’ll be happy to help you out.
