  • What data types can be passed via FromHS[]?

    I see integers can be passed with FromHS[] but, can strings also be passed?

    UPDATE: The helpful Arduino Plugin guide from Enigmatheatre indicates that only an int, long, and float data type can be passed.

    From HS is defined as "int FromHS[10];". Basically, it sends that status value of the appropriate output device you created on the plugin configuration page.
    Edit: As for the int, long and float, that's for sending data from the Arduino to the plugin, i.e. the other way around.

      I use Mqtt to send all my arduino data including strings to homeseer, also homeseer to arduino communication.

      Another benefit is other arduinos can recieve the same data as well.
