”Add Data to Share”

MESH tags can collect and send certain types of data. For instance, you can program MESH Temperature & Humidity to send a notification of room temperature to your device. Follow the steps below to learn how to create a recipe using the notification feature.

Note:

  • Many MESH tags can collect and send data (see table below).
  • The Notification tag can be used to send data as a notification to your device, as an email in GMAIL, or to If This Then That (IFTTT).

 

Sample Recipe: Receive a notification of the temperature in a room when you press MESH Button.
