Feature: MQTT

From Yombo
Jump to: navigation, search


Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) is a light weight messaging protocol used for the Internet of Things (IoT). It can be used by low powered devices to send device status information and receive commands.

Low powered devices are able to connect Yombo and allow it to send or receive system events, deliver status updates (such as weather stations and remote sensors), send device commands, or receive notifications of device state changes.  For a more detailed description and usage of MQTT, view these articles: Into @ HiveMQ and Wikipedia.

For details about interacting with MQTT, see the Yombo MQTT Broker.


The Yombo MQTT Broker allows multiple Yombo Gateway instances to team up and act as one. For full details, see Gateway Clustering.
