I was looking for an IoT platform that can perform few specific applications. And nymea.io caught my attention. It looks very simple to use and to integrate. But being completely new to this platform I am facing a little bit of a problem navigating through it. I was wondering whether someone can help me with the following topics.
I am using ESP8266 and Tasmota. and I wanted to send a couple of digital pin statuses in the form of Logic levels and also data from one analog sensor. My main intention is to use nymea as an MQTT broker on Raspberry pi and currently, I also wanted to see if Nymea was receiving the proper data.
Is it possible to add custom “Thing” in nymea so that I can monitor those three data (two digital input pin status and one analog input) sent from ESP8266?
I also wanted to run other apps on the Raspberry pi, like running a media player and using a mouse and keyboards and maybe a few GPIO operations. Please correct me if I’m wrong, if I install the Nymea image on PI, I am no longer is able to use all those operations. Is there a way to run Nymea and also to use the Pi as a general computer?
Thank you very much.
