Increase VAR limit



  • I've got a soil moisture probe that has 8 sensors for soil moisture and 8 for temperature. The current VAR only allows for VAR1-5. Is there a reason that this limit can not be increased to say VAR1-15? (Some soil moisture probes has up to 15 sensors)



  • @NielBierman, the library provides 254 sensors definitions, and for each you can use types VAR1-5, that means 1270 distinct values.
    If you have 8 soil moisture and 8 temp you should define a sensor for every pair.
    Sensor 0 : VAR1 and TEMP
    ...
    Sensor 8 : VAR1 and TEMP



  • @NielBierman Why are you using VARs when there are already moisture and temperature categories available to you?
    Just give each temp and moisture sensor a unique CHILD_ID (simply by adding 1-8 in the name) and you are done!
