Hi, I am using an DS18b20 with a relay to control my house temperature and opening or closing the house heaters. I think it would be awesome to have the DS18b20 read value in a TFT display like thee ILI9341. Right now I can do that using cayennee to readd the DDS18b20 and controlling the relay and in the other hand using a simple script in python to read the ds18b20 and displaying it in the ILI9341. The problem is that the script is a separeted thing and it would bee nice to have it all in cayenne. Is there any possbility to do that? How would I start to do it?
Just i case anyone want to do the same, using cayenne and also displaying the temp in a tft, here is the code I am using. Directly from Adafruit (kudos to them)
