Hi Mark, maybe this is not the answer your are waiting for.
I am going to experiment with simple home automation tasks. I think I will use Losant as an IoT-platform. But cloud.onion.io might also work. My very first attempt was reading the temperature in my home office using temperature.onion.io.
in this example I am reading sensor data (Vienna (AT) indoor). In the same way I could send data like it is done in the OLED-example at cloud.onion.io
