[Solved] Device Simulator output

simulator

#1

Hi There

I created a simulated device that output random values.
I can see in the simulator log that it is working.

I want to display the data from the simulator in a dashboard and assume i have to build a workflow first.
What do i need to trigger in the workflow to get the simulator data and will I need to output to a device state?

Thank You

Hi,

When running the simulator you are actually setting the device state. Thus you can just create a dashboard and those values will show up on your blocks. I would keep the simulator running in one tab while you create a dashboard in the other. Once you close the tab the simulator is running in it will stop pushing random state data into your device. In order to keep that dashboard populated with data, you will eventually need to create a workflow or use our API to push device state to a device.

Hope that helps,
Erin
