Action Item #508closed
Add IoT messaging to PiBox protocol
- device type
- device features
- device states
There are probably others. It's not clear if the protocol should send lightweight messages and let the endpoints decipher or if the message should be self-defining. The latter seems better, using JSON underneath (the parson library recently added to piboxd). The problem is that the device itself may not be able to use the library easily. There may be some json libraries for the ESP8266. I'll have to check on that.
This is required to support the iotapp display and control via piboxd.
