Example

  • Take a couple ESP8266 boards
  • Those ESP8266 boards can be operated via MQTT protocol
  • Each board has sensors like, temperature, humidity, relay, push button, etc.,
  • Now relate with MyController resources
    • All the boards can be connected via MQTT to MyController - is called gateway
    • A board is a endpoint - is called node
    • temperature, humidity, etc., measurements are called field
    • group of fields or a single field goes under a source
