New device

Not all devices are sensors. In typical use case you will have many devices providing some state by measuring data using external sensors and we call them here sensors. However very often you will have some devices which need to react on changed state of other devices or react on user action - this we call executor devices.

To implement a new executor device you need to create a new implementation of a sensor (executor device is a sensor as well as it reports it current state), which also implements IExecutorDevice inteface:

public interface IExecutorDevice<T> {

	void setValue(T value);



In typical usage T should implement IValue interface.

This method will be automatically called if new state will be published for this device (new state will be published on a device state node).

If your device requires to listen to states published by other sensors then it needs to implement NodesObserver with method getObserverdNodes() which needs to return list of state node in which your device is interrested in. Additionally you will have to implement following method:

public void onValueChanged(ExtendedPubSubNodesManager.ValueChangedEvent event) {

It will be called whenever new state/value will be published by any sensor or a device. You need to check source variable of a ValueChangedEvent to look for a node of a device in which state you are interested in. In value variable of a ValueChangedEvent you will find newly published device state which node you will find in source variable.
