I would like to reduce the load on the remote Pi. I don’t need temperature measure more often than say 10mins.

Is there any way I can specify how often readings should be taken?

with raspberry pi agent not possible but you can use cayenne python library and adjust the publish time as you want GitHub - myDevicesIoT/Cayenne-MQTT-Python: Python Library for Cayenne MQTT API

Thanks Shramik - is there a way of temporarily stopping and restarting Cayenne in my Pi? (Say by systemctl stop). It would be useful to remove the load briefly whilst running system updates.

you can find the command here GitHub - myDevicesIoT/Cayenne-Agent: Cayenne Agent
