thank you for the quick answer.
Just to verify: this means, the user has to care for the sensor metrics, because Losant cannot, right? Isn´t this a source of errors, if the device just sends numbers and the user has to know, if this is W, kW or °C??
Data metrics are very handy:
- they allows to check calculations, it prevents you from adding things that cannot be added (like kW and °C)
- they can be used to choose diagram axis automatically
There are a lot of other information that could be related to data sources, like
- sensor number
- sensor location
- calibration date
- valid data range
These information are related to sensors, not to devices. Does this mean, we have to set up a separate device for every sensor to use tags??
Sorry for the many questions…
Best regards, Eckehard
