I'm very new to Cayenne and excited by the potential.
I am testing an Arduino Nano linked to a Raspberry Pi with multiple analog sensors, as part of a (possibly over-elaborate!) automated gardening project. I use the Pi for Ethernet connectivity, data collection and for the Pi Camera to keep an eye on the sensors.
I'd love to use Cayenne as my dashboard but it seems that I need an Arduino networking shield in order to "register" the device and get a token before I can connect to Cayenne? I was following Ken's post here:
Ethernet and Wifi on Arduino seems particularly clunky and especially with a Nano. Is there not a way to register via a PC or Pi without the Arduino needing its own Wifi or Ethernet? If not then I would need to buy a shield just to register with Cayenne after which it would be redundant which seems an unnecessary waste.
Also if I added more Arduinos would they need to be individually registered?
Any help / guidance is much appreciated. I'm keen to get actively working on this but this uncertainty is holding me back.
