I’m trying to build a kind of Display node in a MySensors network connected through a serial gateway to Pimatic.
What I would like to achieve is to send the latest available sensor data of different nodes to this Display node.
In the MySensors forum I discussed this and did only find a solution if the sensor nodes would send dedicated messages directly to this display node.
This would mean I would have to update all nodes involved to also send their data to this Display node (besides the gateway).
I think this is very inconvenient since existing working nodes have to be reprogrammed to get the info to the Display node.
Also using a retrieve function in the Display node directly from the sensor node is not the solution for me since these sensor nodes need to be alive all the time which is not feasible for battery nodes.
Since latest values of sensor nodes are available in Pimatic I would like to retrieve them from this Pimatic database to the Display node by active request done by the Display node to the Pimatic environment.
Is there a way to do this?
To be more specific: I have a solar weather station node in my garden and would like to display some of the data in a seperate node inside my house.
