I’m working on a project whose objective is to get various data from animals using sensors. The project has 3 parts:
The first part is to create the sensors.
The second part is to create and install the gateways to receive messages.
The third part is to create an application to get the data.
The thing is, that I’m only working on the application that will get the data. I made a server using NodeJS to receive the data, store it in a database and send emails when there are problems.
Now, a few days ago, I was told that I would also need to detect when the gateway is down and I have no idea how to do that. Any advice?
Edit: It is expected from the application to have a way to monitor the gateway without using a node. That’s why I’m having problems and have no idea what to do.
