I would like to follow VAR1 on a mixed sensor graph, how do I do that ?
Also is there a way to change the the labelname in the same tool to f.ex. the name set in present() on the node
Thanks again, every day I feel a little more in control.
To have only one gateway I have eliminated the serial-gateway. I am now using the Raspberry Pi as a MQTT gateway, and MyController is setup to use the RPI as MySensor-MQTT gateway. All Sensors get discovered and everything looks fine.
So I am happy - this is exactly what I was looking for
There is one minor difference - when using the serial gateway all my repeaters were interconnected with lines, now they are all islands. Before I believe that only non-repeater showed as unconnected. I kind of liked that distinction - Why is this so ?
Thanks for great project and great support
I just found this
I certainly would like to see this implemented, or perhaps just a way to export a given sensor to MQTT. If this is already possible I would like to know how, otherwise a button on each sensor (and node to export, all its sensors) where you could specify a MQTT name, would be really helpfull. think of it as a symbolic link
Thank you for your reply, it helped me get a little further, although there are still many blanks
When I first started playing with MySensors I made a MySensors-MQTT gateway on a Raspberry Pi as described here:
but somehow it could not see my sensors, so I was stuck for a few days.
Then I saw a comment somewhere on the MySensor forum that you need to have a controller, and then I noticed this comment "NOTE: No controller supports dynamic ID assignment through MQTT. All nodes must have MY_NODE_ID" on
which led to MyController. So I build a MySensor serial-gateway and was up and running in no time with MyController, I was (and still am) very impressed with what could be achieved this way with very limited effort. Hence I rethought my configuration, now wanting to have MyController be the back-bone also since it seemed to have build in MQTT-broker.
This is what I thought the MQTT functionallity in MyController was - I guess I was wrong, is it only intended to be a gateway from MQTT to MyController. I believe the other way could be really valuable with f.ex. node-red. Do I understand this right or is there something I have missed ?
Anyway - for now it seems that I had already solved my problem, the Raspberry pi had been supplying a MQTT stream as soon as MyController had numbered my sensors.
Is this a desireable setup, I read some where that you can only have one Gateway on a MySensors network, and now I have two ?
As you can see it is still MyController/MySensors playing with me, but soon I hope I will have some of my blanks filled in so it will be me playing with them.
If you can read Danish or use google translate, I have written about this on my blog and intend to document my progress there aswell
I have a small MySensor network which is connected to MyController via a serial gateway.
The sensors seems to be read as expected and produce nice graphs.
I have enabled MQTT as you can see from the log-file below

And i try to subscribe to the MQTT -server with
mosquitto_sub -h 192.168.2.8 -t '#'
The command blocks as expected but nothing further happens.
Following "Status->Resource logs" I see that measurements is arriving at a steady pace.
What am I doing wrong ?
