In my opinion it's not feasible to do this on memory constrained devices, we should keep the topic structure as simple as possible. If we implement the homie-conventions we need to keep all the sensor names etc as string values in the code, in order to create a proper topic.
As an alternative, you could use nodered to transform topics to another format. I'm doing that in my setup, so I have the following topic structure:
to set a value to a device I have the same topic as above, with /set appended.
@Martin_Smith Microwave backscatter can show rain out to some distance. At airports an optical method is used as it also covers fog and snow. It really comes down to why you want to measure distance in rainy days and what sort of distance you intend or need to cover.....
I admit that I have been pretty silent the last couple of years on the forum. But daytime work have drained my energy reserves. I have however just picked up mysensors again, and started jumping into platform Io for arduino. And converted one of my old mysensors sketches.
I hope that I can return to the community again, still have some fun hardware projects planned, but also need to constrain myself, so I do not have to many projects at the same time, otherwise my energy is depleted completely
@NeverDie said in Advisory: put IOT devices on a separate LAN/vLAN for better security:
Lest I mislead anyone, I subsequently contacted to the seller and, despite the wording, it doesn't include an E3-1200 with the board. He just meant that as shorthand to refer to the processor family that's compatible with the board. That said, there are a ton of inexpensive used LGA1150 CPU's on ebay that could serve the purpose.
@hek From what I've read, to better avoid browser fingerprinting, Brave apparently camouflages itself as Chrome: https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/brave-user-agent-detection.html That would make sense, since there would be less uniqueness if mixed into a larger pool, and Chrome has the largest pool by far. Perhaps that would mean you'd be getting tips from seemingly "out of the blue". Brave is pretty new, but there's a good chance the idea might catch on when people realize it works in their best interests.
