Hi. I’m a complete newbie to all of this BigClown world, MQTT and so on. So maybe the question is gonna be ill-posed, but… I expected this to be pretty easy and well documented, however, I wasn’t able to finish the task using the available documentation.
Prerequisite: Connecting the radio dongle to my Windows computer worked, (the new, beta) playground behaved well, displayed temperatures and so on. I also installed the dongle to my router and that also works fine.
Target: Connect the radio dongle to my Turris Omnia (OpenWRT-based router) and have the same view on the data from playground on my notebook as when the dongle was locally connected.
Problem 1: The only way to set up a remote connection I found is in Functions->mqtt->Edit node->Server. I changed localhost to the router’s IP, but no data are passing through.
mosquitto_sub executed on the router normally returns messages from the climate module. So the data are there, they’re just not getting to my playground.
Problem 2: I assume that bcg is just some kind of relay without memory, so how do I make the playground display also historical data (e.g. in the chart component)? Do I need to install something more to the router?
Thank you for guiding me
