Can an Arduino (with an ethernet shield) somehow get a message to Particle Land - without being physically connected to a Particle device? I’m sure it must be possible but I can’t think by what mechanism besides IFTT…any tips?! Basically I’d like to use a now redundant Arduino with ethernet shield as another input device…all it would do is monitor one switch but then I’d like my Photons to be able to act on that input
Can Photons talk directly to a Windows box? I know that you can use third party services like Pushover to send push notifications to a webpage - but it’s a real pain having to keep the webpage open to be sure the push notification comes up. Is there another way? Maybe not involving push notifications at all?
