Calculate additional data from Adafruit IO feeds

by simos_iot on Fri May 03, 2019 1:21 am

I'm trying to minimise the amount of data being sent via a cellular connection due to the way the data is charged.

At the moment we are sending, among other things, temperature, humidity and dew-point. Dew-point is actually calculated from temperature and humidity.

Is there a way in Adafruit IO to read the temperature and humidity values, calculate the dew-point and then add that calculated value to another feed?

At this time, Adafruit IO can not perform calculations on data received; the hardware client is expected to take care of that. It's a good idea - and something we're considering adding into the service.

Thanks for the update...hope to see a feature like this in the future as it would simplify some operations.
