Send text to Dashboard


I am monitoring a door where the door sw returns a 1 when it is closed and 0 when open. It would be great to print “Open” or “Closed” on the Dashboard instead of 0 or 1. Can this be done?

Currently I’m using a Value widget to display the door state as 0 or 1, but clearly the user has to know the meaning of each state, which is not user-friendly.


there is another way you can achieve this. add 2 two state widget. name 1st as open door on channel 1 and 2nd as close door on channel 2.
so when the door is closed the 2nd widget is on and when open the 1st widget is on.
