how to send data to h-node.org

In order to send data to h-node.org you need to carry out a simple HTTP request with the data transmitted by the POST method.

The server (h-node.org) takes the value of the entries of the devices from the data sent by means of the POST method.

The data sent by the POST method are formed by a long chain of POST variables, each one having his own value. In the following you will find the complete list of variables that the server expects for each hardware category.
