New tutorial - Building your own Payload Parser

Developers can use the devices included in the Device list or add their own devices whenever they want. If you use your own device, you may want to ‘parse’ the payload so that it can prepare the data before sending it to the bucket.

Each device sends data using their specific format, usually a hexadecimal raw payload like 0x0F55028A, this hexadecimal is great for devices, but for end users, raw payloads should be converted to actual variables like temperature or humidity.

You can use the Payload Parser feature from TagoIO to perform this job. Each time the data is sent by a device, if a script is included in the Payload Parser tab, the code will be executed and it will extract the variables.
