Along with uplink messages (events) triggered irregularly (such as sensor-triggered events), you can also receive periodical events that are triggered by time only. We call some of these events Heartbeats.


Heartbeats are mode-independent events triggered by time. There are 3 heartbeats defined in API 6, Heartbeat 1, Heartbeat 2, and Heartbeat 3. Heartbeats 1 and 2 are identical yet individual and you can fine-tune their behavior and appended data with a lot of settings. Heartbeat 3 is used for regular messages with MAC addresses and to control the Stupid modes and its settings are limited compared to HB 1 and 2.
