I have an application where I have an Argon acting to control hardware, with other argons acting as remote sensors. Small amounts of data, probably 1Hz or so.
Originally I was planning to use Xenons + Mesh for the communication, but I just started using these again and learned about the demise of the Mesh functionality.
I do plan to send some of the data to the cloud, but I need these to keep working even if the internet/cloud goes down.
UDP honestly sounds like the best idea right now, but please let me know if there is a better method. I think the mesh functions were supposed to work without the cloud? So maybe some of that functionality is going to survive?
(I would even consider a setup where a sensor broadcasts UDP until it is contacted by a controller via TCP, and self-registers. I don’t want to get too involved though.)
