hello Community,

i am building an arduino compatible Zigbee Ambient Sensors (Temp, humidity, pressure, light) and the plan is to spread 6-8 of this WSN, There will be a Raspberry pi as a server with wifi/thingspeak. My question is this:
Is it possible to develop a new custom plugin that can handle "if this then that" triggers ie: if temperature is bellow 18c then turn on the heater (assuming i connect a zigbee relay to the heater)

please let me know if Thingspeak can achieve such direction, any thoughts or ideas are welcome..

Hi tara,

You can set up a ThingSpeak React ( https://thingspeak.com/docs/react ) to do this. The React would monitor a ThingSpeak Channel that logs temperature values, and when the temperature field drops below a certain value then React would send a ThingHTTP request ( https://thingspeak.com/docs/thinghttp ) to the Zigbee relay to turn the heater on.

Please let me know if you need more help setting this up with React or ThingHTTP.

Hi @lee
thanks for the tips, i will look into react app... my idea is to simplify the process, something like Wigwag's device.js https://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/assets/000/649/986/57321dd11a3f8d5ae91ff319c112bbc5_large.png

thanks.
