Have you checked the Actuation side of the Intel® IoT Developer Kit Cloud-based Analytics User Guide? If you haven't already done it, I suggest you to check it: IoT - Actuation | Intel® Developer Zone.
Thanks for the feedback. Its precisely at that page within the Intel Documentation that I am lost.
Nothing seems to happen.See attached screenshot from the Intel XDK console. Perhaps you can redirect me to some basic tutorials to getting started here.
Sorry for the delay in my response.
We were able to setup the actuations from IoT Analytics using the following sample code.
Using the two links from above as reference, we wrote a simple code that does the following:
1. Read the temperature sensor
2. Send the observation to the IoT Analytics
3. Listen for actuations
We activated a board with IoT Analytics and registered two components:
1. temperature as a sensor
2. LED as a actuator
Create a complex command in the Control section.
Using the LED component (actuator) create a complex command with parameter Value 1 and Transport type as websockets.
Create rule in My Rules Section
Create two rule that reads the temperature sensor, when the temperature sensor reaches a specific temperature the rule will be executed.
One rule will be created to send email when the rule is executed. The second rule will send the actuator signal to the board.
