Yes! My wood stove monitor’s data is now received by my Power Monitor and pushed to my channel on ThingSpeak.

The data is transmitted to another address on the same channel. I did it this way because nRF’s pipes work only for one receiver with multiple transmitter. On the Power Monitor side there is another DirtyPCB to handle the nRF24L01+. By using my “nRF platform” 99% of the code was already done! All I had to do is write some code the receive the formatted data on the second serial port available on the Power Monitor. Interconnecting them was a snap: Vcc, Gnd & Data!
