MQTT sensors support?



  • Hi,

    I'm publishing sensor data from another source to MyController MQTT broker. But I cannot see them in MyController? I like to be able to use them as normal MySensors variables. What am I missing here? Do I need to use any special topic?


  • ADMIN

    @Redferne You have to subscribe those topics. and should be in MySensors format



  • @jkandasa

    Ok, great! How do I subscribe to them, inside MyController? What is the MySensor format?
    Any documentation available?


  • ADMIN

    @Redferne
    Now support MyController supports it's own format on SNAPSHOT version. MyController format is here

    You can see MySensors API details on here.

    Wonderful, now things are a bit easier. Just need to use expected MQTT Topic format. I have debugging set to TRACE level, so I should be to see any messages received by the MyController broker and client?


  • ADMIN

    @Redferne Yes, When you set this line <logger level="DEBUG" name="org.mycontroller.standalone.gateway.mqtt" /> on conf/logback.xml you can see MQTT debug logs.



  • @jkandasa what is the difference between mysensors mqtt and mycontroller mqtt gateways?


  • ADMIN

    @paul MyCointroller gateway designed to support MyController specific devices, for now It supports for Raspberry PI via RPI-agent and ESP8266. I have changed MQTT format for this. hence we have different type of MQTT formats.

    Please note MyController Supported not released yet, hence you may see some changes before release.



  • @jkandasa nice. I see support for standalone esp8266 sensors to use mqtt to communicate with mycontroller soon. Looking forward to some Arduino examples to use mycontroller-device library
