Pass IOS data to back-end

Postby bheil123 » Fri Jan 03, 2014 9:06 pm

It would be great if the IOS app could pass more data to the Arduino for SMS and notifications (and visa-versa). Currently the following is passed from Arduino to IOS App.

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <myDoorOpener>
<status statusPin="2">Closed</status>
<status statusPin="3">Opened</status>
<status statusPin="4">Closed</status>

Is sent. How about:

"Device Name"
"IP Address"
"Pin Value"

Thanks for the consideration.

Thanks for the suggestion. Indeed, this could be interesting information to provide but keep
in mind that notifications also get fired when a door/device gets opened/closed outside of
the iOS app context. For example, someone opening the garage door using the wallmount
button would also generate a notification. In such case, the "additional" information would
not be available for the notification.

With that limitation in mind, I think the general idea is interesting ... If more people are
interested in this new feature, please "vote" on this thread and we may be adding it in a
future release.

Best regards,
