Send a password from cayenne to arduino when a button is pushed

#1

I would like to control my home made alarm system. I want turn on and turn off the system using a cayenne´s buttom but i would like to introduce a security code (like a password) (maybe it´s possible open a new window for introduce the numbers/characters).

Is it possible that cayenne ask for a password when the user push the alarm button?.

This password could be sent to arduino and this device will execute the order only in case of right password.

Thank you in advance and apologize for my horrible english.

maybe you can try and create a custom app which opens only when the correct password is pressed.

Thank you for you answer. I´m a new cayenne user and i am not using a app. I am using the cayenne´s webside from my mobile phone in orden to control my arduino´s digital pins.

I would like to introduce a password in order to avoid no authorized users but, i think it could confirm too the action from authorized users (avoiding the action in case of accidental pressed to alarm button).

is it possible to introduce characters using the keyboard in cayenne and send them to arduino?.

Thank you for your answer.

The bygonzales´ project looks like he is trying to make a code using different combinations of several digital buttons. I´m trying to send and character string from cayenne to arduino like a password. For examble “1234” or “8675” o whatever. i´m think type this code in a window and send to arduino pressing a button but i´don´t if it´s possible.

You can give the code for keyboard a try. Where the counter increments on each correct input and after x try is the counter is equal to the value then the particular action is taken.
