[SOLVED] Anyone tried MMM-mqtt?



  • Hi there,

    First time user and loving this after stumbling across it on YouTube. First mirror demo up and running on Jessie Lite albeit without the screensaver or auto start working but I was wondering if anyone has tried MMM-mqtt? I have it configured and it is connecting to my broker but when I’m publishing to the topic the MM is subscribed to, no data appears on the screen.

    I’ve logged an issue here but would appreciate it if anyone could let me know if there’s is working and paste their config. :confused:

    [UPDATE 25TH July 2017]. See my issue here https://github.com/javiergayala/MMM-mqtt/issues/1. @javiergayala has modified the instructions now to ensure you have a MQTT client installed first otherwise MMM-mqtt won’t work.



  • Not as of yet but a project I"m interested in will require it so I’m curious as to how this works out…



  • I know this is an old topic but hopefully someone has started using this module and can help out. I am looking for a way to have mqtt fire off an alert box when it receives a specific message on a particular topic. I haven’t really worked with alerts either.

    I have MQTT working now and pulling in data (Temperature) from a remote MQTT broker. Don’t think MMM-mqtt is going to handle your alert natively. You’d need something like Home Assistant to manage the automation?

    I have mosquito running I just want to send an alert to the alert module when I receive a notification that the mail was delivered on the topic: /sensors/mailbox

    I am hoping I can do the same as you but using openHab…

    Would you care to share how you did it? Thanks!



  • Hello. @xbmcnut i tried to use this module to connect to my home assistant broker with login and password but no success.
    How can i show a state of my sensors from Esp8266 connected to home assistant via mqtt on my mirror?

    As per the instructions here https://github.com/javiergayala/MMM-mqtt, sadly MMM-mqtt “Currently only supports unencrypted/unauthenticated MQTT connections” so it won’t work on a broker that has a username and password set up.



  • @xbmcnut No sure it’ll work for me… haven’t looked into but we’ll see. I need it to make a connection with OpenHab.
