Hey there, I’m pretty new to PIO and IoT stuff in general. I first implemented the sensor I wanted to make using straight Arduino code, then Mongoose OS, then PIO. I really like how PIO “feels” and the community support, libraries, etc.
But one thing I miss from Mongoose is how trivial it is to connect up with their backend dashboard service (which is free for up to 3 devices). For those not familiar, it gives you, at a glance, an overall view of the health, last seen, shadow document, etc, for all of your sensors.
So I’m curious, what is everyone using to see if your sensors are still alive? I’m already planning on using Node-RED for some backend business logic and I know I could build “last seen” alerting into that but that seems like a lot of heavy lifting.
Any suggestions? Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
