Well, using separate devices inside Losant can be an advantage.
Let assume, we have a “gateway” sending some data from different sensors:
Data will arrive via the gateway device, so as far as I can see, we will need a corresponding attribute on the gateway for every sensor, right?
Any suggestion how to forward data from a gateway to other devices in a consistent way? I suppose this will include some Programming to get the data from a gateway to the “virtual” device which has the same “attribute”?!?
If I do all the jobs manually, renaming a single datasource means:
- Renaming the gateway attribute
- create a new “virtual” device to receive the data
- Adding an attribute to the “virtual” device
- changing the transport mechanism to copy the data from the gateway to the new device
Is there any other way to use gateway devices I did not recognize?
