I’m an embedded systems developer working a temperature probe device. Each temperature measurement (poll) is hours apart. To maximize battery life, the device utilizes deep sleep and disconnects from LTE while not doing a measurement.
The devices do not have GPS, but my client would like to allow users to utilize the GPS map so the users can remember where the device is planted. Ideally, this is done through a Losant Experience View (we want the users to be able to do this themselves without our intervention).
From what I’ve gathered, all data displayed from the dashboard is solely from devices. With that said, one way that I think works, although isn’t ideal, is sending the GPS string to each device, waiting for each device to read the GPS string, save it, and then send it back to Losant. With a polling time of hours, this seems far from ideal. In other words, I’m pretty sure the user wouldn’t be able to see if the location was actually updated until another poll occurs.
