Send data to using MQTT

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fe7a36ba778>

Dear All,

I would like to. implement posting data to emoncms hosted portal (paid one) but my devices (using tasmota) can only do that using MQTT (as it works everywhere else). Is there any plan to support this kind of way to send data?

Short answer is (I think) no.

Simplest solution is to use Node-Red to receive the data then send it on (there is an emoncms node).

The reason it is no, is that the HTTP method allows the data to be buffered at the remote end. Just occasionally you might see a slight delay in the data being received - this is because it queues the data.

Got it, just wanted to avoid another node (this mean server, node red instance, …) in between my devices and emoncms.
