Is thinger.io hardware agnostic? (Uploading telemetry of any device via HTTP)


#1

Hi,

I’d like to ask whether it’s possible to create a device entity whose telemetry will be uploaded to the thinger server via standard protocols (HTTP/REST etc.) instead of the internally handled protoson. If not, implementing it would be a really big step towards making the platform hardware agnostic.

Since there’s an API for sending data to a data bucket through HTTP requests, it should be technically possible to send data to a device entity.

Is such a feature planned? Or, alternatively, is there a workaround for this limitation?

Thanks!

P.S.: Alvaro muchas gracias for your hard work!

Hi, yes, you can push data to a data bucket over a REST API. Take a look to the Sigfox documentation here, it configures an endpoint like you want: http://docs.thinger.io/sigfox/
