Forums : String sensor type
This page last changed on May 03, 2011 by gdrapp.
Has anybody considered adding a 'String' sensor type that would allow us to pass a string from the protocol directly to the view? This would be similar to the Custom sensor type, but instead of mapping known state values from the protocol to friendly strings in the view the protocol would pass a friendly string straight to the view. The immediate use case I'm considering is to pass security zone names (i.e. Front Door, Back Door) from my new DSC security system protocol to a label on an OpenRemote panel. Thoughts?
If there aren't any concerns or objections, I'll take a look at the code and see if I can get it implemented.
