I have a sensor which reports lightlevel as a discrete String values. I’d like to analyze these values such that I can see the lightlevel at certain times. I configured the analyze action but my chart is empty. Note that analyzing in general works fine using jdbc as default persistence.
My guess is that the analyzer needs numeric data points to work. The next question would be how to best transform the strings into numbers but still displaying them in the chart. I could certainly do that using Rules but I wonder if there is a more direct way?
What do you visualize happening, exactly, what would a chart of “text” look like?
Maybe a timeline, a bar that changes colour in blocks. It’s an interesting challenge and I don’t think there is any feature like that readily available.
Of course you could create a numeric analog to the text, scale 0 to 3 or whatever by simple mapping, and chart that fairly easily.
Struggling to see the point really when you already have numeric alternate value available to chart. What is the real purpose of having this, what are you hoping to gain or learn? There might be a different approach.
Presence (netzwork binding with ping) detection with “away” or “in House” with transform file.
Analyze is not possible.
2 items, one with textual (transform) and one with Switch (ON / OFF), which can be analyzed and charted.
The events log displays both if they change.
Is there a possibility to make that more comfortable with only one item?
