How to use the EZMQTT Broker robot skillHave you wanted to run your own MQTT Broker? Now you can with this skill. MQTT (MQ Telemetry Transport) is a publish-subscribe-based "lightweight" messaging protocol for use on top of the TCP/IP protocol (port 1883). The publish-subscribe messaging pattern requires a message broker. The broker is responsible for distributing messages to interested clients based on the topic of a message.
How EZMQTT Works
1) Start the EZMQTT Broker
2) In the EZMQTT Client Configuration enter the Broker IP
3) In the EZMQTT Client Configuration enter a topic (Subscription) name
4) In the EZMQTT Client Configuration write a script that sends a message
5) Connect Publisher Client(s) to the Broker to publish topic messages
6) Connect Subscriber Client(s) to the Broker to receive topic messages
*Note: Clients can be both Publishers & Subscribers. The diagram above is a simplification.

Very interesting topic, thanks
I have been reading MQTT is the leading protocol for connecting IoT devices
They say - Every day, hundreds of millions of devices and applications send and receive data and commands across IoT, using MQTT.
wanted to start a dialogue, guess no one is interested.
I don't think we'll have time to make a video about it but we're updating the documentation so that should help.
Yes using EZMQTT in ARC does allow for some pretty amazing and powerful capabilities. It's features lend well to connecting with multiple IoT controllers, sensors, and other wireless devices
I'm guessing a lot of us here are taking advantage of the summer weather, so that's probably why you aren't seeing much action.
