Hi. Hope somebody can help. It's quite simple, I am bringing in data from a temperature sensor and when it is below 25 degrees it posts a tweet. However, occasionally the value returned from the sensor is null and it tweets when it shouldn't. Is there a way to have ThingTweet ignore NULL values?

Your plan is definitely possible, it requires just a little bit of administration, and it may increase the delay. I would create another channel for filtered data. Then create a MATLAB analysis that reads the data from your temperature sensor channel. If the value is normal, it writes to the refined channel If the value is NULL, you can have it repeat the previous value or do a running average. You can use a React or TimeControl to trigger the Analysis. Then you can set up your react to trigger on the refined channel, and it wont have the problem with NULL values. You can only have one react run 'On data insertion' so one of the two operations will need to be on a regular schedule.

Let us know if that works for you.
