Polling Going Deeper

The very basic polling service described in the first part has a limited throughput, so it is not well suited for real applications (except for very small ones) in its original form. Could it be enhanced? Of course. Read More ›

Polling Basics

All BMS communication protocols (well, almost all) use polling to read point values. This is a simple service, consisting of request-response message pairs. Master device (for example, Tridium Jace) asks for a point – slave device responds with its value. Repeat again, and again, and again. Read More ›
