Using the Device Emulator

Using the Device Emulator

If you want a quick way to send data to your applications, but you don't have your hardware device available at the moment, or you simply need to send data to debug your applications, you can do that very easily using the Device Emulator.

To access the emulator, go to Devices, select the device, and then click on the Emulator tab.

You can send payload in different formats, including the standard JSON and raw payloads. You can use raw to send using your own data structure, like CSV format, but you must create a Payload parser to convert the output in the format that TagoIO accepts (JSON). 

Also, you can use Functions and Timer to send data automatically to your devices.
