Sending data From cayenne to 8266


#1

Anybody tried sending data from cayenne to an 8266?

You can send 1 bit through a button, and (i think) an integer through a slider, but is that it? I would like to send a couple of floats to initialize some counters on the 8266 after a reset. Perhaps even a bit of text??

It occurs to me that the 8266 can access the internet, so it could fetch the data from cayenne using that JSON history fetch procedure, and initialize the state back to the last time it was running. I’ll give that a try.

You can use a slider to send a float value, however, text is currently not supported.
