Hello OpenChirp team!
Just wanted to say thanks for putting this together and I’m excited to make use of this in our upcoming project. I’ve been in communication with Anthony and a few folks around an upcoming project that we hope to build on the open chirp platform. There are a few essential features that we would love to see in the platform though.
One essential feature is the ability to send the same command to multiple nodes. This would probably require a concept of a “group” of nodes then having actions associated with that group rather than individual devices.
Another one would be an alerting mechanism. Pretty straight forward, if some event happens then send an alert notification. One use case here would be around a heartbeat, if it has been some configurable amount of time since the last report I would like to get an alert. I know the system connects to an influxdb instance in some way, so if that is publicly accessible then I could certainly tack it on externally I suppose. Need to read up on how the influx instance is set up.
Happy to move these requests to a more appropriate issue tracker if needed, not sure how these are normally handled.
