I am looking for assistance from someone to help write code for a Photon Particle (similar to an Arduino) that will monitor if a machine is running then publish the data to the cloud in JSON format. This project would be done in C++.
The current development would monitor input D7 for input and set the start time as a variable. It would then continue to monitor D7 until the input on D7 went off and set the end time and elapsed time. Then publish the data to the cloud with the machine number so it could be parsed out. Reset the variables and wait for it to happen again.
This initial version could use IFTTT and google sheets to log the data but I would eventually like to get it to an Azure sql server for better BI. I would rather walk before we run =)
