I have a TI TMC1294GXL Launchpad connected to my (IOT) WiFi Network. The ESP8266 node data is sent via the Ethernet port on this board for processing, . monitoring setting alarms etc, a sort of local IFTTT ?
Then a summary of the data collected is passed on to Thinger using a serial link and an ESP8266. The latter is a waste really as I could connect to Thinger via the same Ethernet connection to my 4G router.
My question is this…
Can I use the Ethernet connection as a ‘hub’ to collect data from my local net as well as the Thinger connection port?
I know Thinger times out if not responded to quickly enough but the processor I’m using is very quick. So can I use the Ethernet port for two tasks or will that interfere with Thinger’s Ethernet client?
