Our favorite project this week is an AC Current Meter that uses MQTT to publish the readings to the Losant IoT platform. Bas Rijniersce used his Omega2 and National Control Devices boards to measure the current and push the available results to Losant, allowing him to access the values of the current remotely!
Bas wrote a Python program that grabs the sensor’s readings and publishes them to the Losant IoT platform via MQTT. It has a great feature that collects the data even when an internet connection is not available and pushes it to Losant when the device comes back online. To measure the current values, he used a NCD 3-channel current sensor to obtain the values and make them internet accessible!
Awesome project Bas! It is a pleasure to see more and more Omega2 MQTT projects!
