I succeeded in connecting node-red to the thingsnetwork thanks to this manual:
Messages are send and received both ways
Next step is I want my ttn data to be send to a platform like Cayenne. I found a red-node app which acts as a mqtt client to cayenne:
I can’t find any docs about how to use it in node-red. There are three kinds of nodes:
- cayenne actuator
- cayenne actuator feedback
- cayenne sensor
I fiddled around and get some progress with ‘cayenne sensor’. I connected it like so:
ttn-message -> cayenne-sensor
I edited cayenne-sensor with all the right details I found on cayenne api page on my account with cayenne. Both nodes (ttn and cayenne-sensor) now show up in node-red as ‘connected’. But in Cayenne api I see consistently ‘waiting for board to connect’. The debug output is 1. the expected output from ttn-device 2. output from cayenne-sensor: “msg: string Invalid value type”
What I probably miss is that I don’t know what value to use for ‘QoS’ and ‘Channel’. I tried a few things, but no succes sofar.
If anyone can help me on that would be great.
