we would like to be notified, when laser-cutter filter is full. Would it be possible, that bridge saves some event (similar to
stopType:'filter') every time it recieves signal from filter? Even before laser-cutter is turned off?
Background: In FabLab Brno we have our filter (Trotec Atmos) connected to Fabman via UTP cable. When the filter is full, Fabman starts beeping. If user doesn’t respond, it turns the machine off (and logs it to Fabman backend).
Our use-case: We instructed our users to lower suction power (so they can finish their job) and notify our staff. But sometimes users forget to tell us (or nobody is on-site). So we want to be notified remotely and automatically.
Proposed solution: Save some event to resource-log when filter is full (when Fabman displays Exhaust malfunction message), regardless if machine was turned off. We don’t need any UI changes, because we can automate it via API and our custom bot.
I believe, that it should be technically possible (bridge already knows about full filter) and it could be useful for your other clients.
