Im working on a new device type that will connect to my ZigBee attached anemometer. The anemometer reports its wind speed with the Analog Output Cluster 0x000D on the Home Automation profile. I have it working pretty well with the SmatThings hub and my iPhone. I can read the current wind speed by queering attribute 0x0055 that returns a Single precision floating point value representing the wind speed in MPH .
To display the wind speed in the UI I’m using a value-tile with the “temperature” capability. I would like to use a more generic capability class as this is not a temperature sensor it is a wind sensor. I noticed in this document https://graph.api.smartthings.com/ide/doc/capabilities you have a generic Sensor capability but it doesn’t have any Attributes defined or Commands. How can I use this generic sensor instead of the temperature sensor to report my wind speed?
My next steps are to add two more value tiles that will show up in the details section. I would like them to display the high wind attribute 0x0041 and the low wind speed attribute 0x0045. Im struggling with how to add additional tiles that are not tied to the temperature tile? Any help will be appreciated.
I have IM your tech support on some other developer type questions and they keep pointing me to this forum so I hope this is the correct place for these type of questions.
