Data Input Widgets

Data Input Widgets are tools for you to send data into the cloud. This way, you won't have to send events via REST or MQTT. You can do it directly through the UI on the Dashboard using these widgets. These Widgets are separated based on the type of data you want to send in. You can only send in data to one user at a time.

 

Boolean Input


The Boolean Input Controller is a tool designed for you to send in boolean events easily. To be able to use it, you already must have a boolean type tag in the cloud. First, specify the User in the User dropdown. Then, select the tags by clicking on the settings icon. There is a limit of 4 tags selected at a time.

Sending an event:

  • After your user and tags are selected, you should see the widget below.
  • If you click "Send Event", it will send an event with that value.
    • Example: In the widget below, an event with the value "True" will be sent in the "recipes.start" tag.
  • To switch the event to "False", click on the "True" text and it will switch.
