In this blog post I will describe the program that shows live data after formatting it to general user readable form as shown in the following screenshot.
Each data received is shown in two rows. The top row shows the Date & Time the sensor data was sampled and the data message number (after the device was powered). The bottom row shows the Temperature, Humidity % and whether the temperature read is above the Threshold Temperature set (which is 86 F). I have created the alert situation by exposing the temperature sensor to warm light bulb. Note the Message numbers 14, 15 & 16. The temperature read is above 86 F and indicates that the Alert Occurred.
The console program name is vc_device_live_data and this is to be run in the cmd window or double-clik the vc_device_live_data.exefile.
I would like to share few web links that form the basis for my code. I forgot to share them in the earlier blogs. They are:
