Math on a single sensor?



Is it possible to do math on a single sensor? I have a water sensor that defaults to 0 when water is present, and 100 when dry. I'd like to get the raw number, subtract 100, then multiply by -1. That would convert the scale to dry = 0 to wet = 100.

I understand I can do math on multiple sensors with Sensor Factory, but the impact is high.

Hi Arryn,

in some channels you can use scaling multiplication or division. More mathematical operations are currently not possible.

Kind regards
