Home automation help needed.

Post by JoeClark » Tue Aug 22, 2017 3:02 pm


Started a project of building some kind of home automation, the part I’m starting with is to control my pellets burner with the pyboard.
The pyboard will take care of the burning process and keeping the burner running with new pellets. Then I want to send all the values to my Raspberry pi over serial that will send to my phone using socket and on the phone i will have kiwi for managing the set values and the actual values for the burner.
How would you send many different values over serial? I went through many resources and checked Home Automation Video for help but did not find much help.
My first thought is combining all values in a string with a separator char to tell what values to go into the right variable.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.
