I would like to send a text string (as opposed to numbers) from one of my emonTHs to emonpi and emoncms. I tried various datacodes but could not find one that allowed strings. Can someone point me in the right direction? (Like to a list of all supported datacodes for emonhub).
I’ll be interested in how you get on with this too.
Don’t forget that when specifying the node definition in datacodes the packet size is then set (as a sum of the datacode sizes) so your strings will need to be of a fixed length, so some padding may be required in places.
