I’m wondering if it is possible to make an HTTPS request with my Notecard and Swan MCU directly to a server’s IP address without routing through notehub.
Hi @Voxorin and welcome to the Blues Wireless community!
This is a good question and actually answered in another forum post that you can consult here (happy to answer any follow up questions you may have though):
Hi @RobLauer, thank you for your quick response.
I read through that forum post and see that what I want to do is not an option. I need to make a get request every 10 seconds with about 5 devices. The $0.0006/event fee may make Notehub financially unfeasible for my organization.
Is non-routed requests a feature you and your team would consider adding?
I’m curious to know a little more about your use case so we can see how to best address it. I’ll reach out via a private message shortly.
I wanted to circle back on this thread and make sure you were aware that we’ve made some improvements to Notehub pricing that are relevant to this discussion: removing per-project platform subscription fees and limits, a consumption-based event model, and free credits for each account. You can read more here and here, and let us know if you have any questions!
