Just started having a play with the ‘for Education’ version of Ubidots, got it receiving some values, displaying some data, exporting CSVs etc and looks good.
But I was wondering about how it handles devices/projects where you would want to use Ubidots as a combined display and control dashboard to send control signals/value back to your IOT device.
I found the basic on/off and slider widget, ok for very basic control, but wasn’t sure how you’d achieve some of the following:
say you wanted to set a start/stop clock-time and needed to set hours/mins/seconds (like a clock face selector),
or select a start/stop dates from a calendar,
or display things like the radio button for 1 of X options,
accept and send typed values - numbers, text strings, config codes etc.
Is it possible to do any this with any of the standard widgets?
Or would you need to develop these widgets yourself in the HTML Canvas widget, and could you do the above in the education version?
