New user- in fact I just discovered Particle from an article in Make Magazine.
have a medical device that I wear and it communicates to my Home Assistant* where I send the data over MQTT to ESP nodes around the house for convenient display.
*Not directly, but through two websites then finally through a REST API into Home Assistant, then by MQTT to me display devices.
I was looking at using LoraWan to send this data to a display in my car, then quit investigaing when I discovered that LoraWan is a one-way data system. So, I put the project aside. Then I read a bit about Particle.
My data consists of ten bytes each minute displayed on an eight-digit, 14-segmant LES array.
Is Particle appropriate for this? In particular the free cellular data plan? Are IOT experimenters encouraged by Particle?
