InfluxDB Integration (device status)


Hi, been playing with the influxdb integration and graphing sensor data with Grafana. The sensor used is a Lairdtech RS186. Temperature and humidity display fine. However, to display battery status, the field device_battery_status is available, which seems to get it’s values from the device stat messages. Now in case of the RS186, the stat message always sends 0xFF = battery level unavailable. It does have a battery level, but that is part of the payload. Is there a way to get the actual battery level from the payload into influxdb ? I can parse it just fine in an external C# application that subscribes to the MQTT broker and parse the payload that way, but would be nice if it is possible within the influxdb integration somehow.


Hi…where did you get the RS186 payload information. I’d really like to know as I’m struggling to find it on Laird’s website. Thanks Stuart
