What are Channel data fields?

The data published in a channel can be either a unstructured or structured JSON. You can publish a simple value such as 60, or a structured JSON object such as:

{
  "id": "zwave-10",
  "label": "Power",
  "units": "W",
  "instance": 1,
  "value": 12
}

The above example shows a z-wave channel with 5 data fields (id, label, units, instance and value), each one with a respective value.

The CloudPlugs channel data fields offer maximum flexibility to allow devices and applications to exchange simple or complex data types.
