Hello, i'm new with this node-red things and need some guidance regarding my problem.
I'm using google VM as my server with mosquitto and esp32 as publisher and subscriber.
right now, i start using 2 esp32 to communicate with publish and subscribe things.
the first one esp32 i'm using it for publisher and the others for subscribe.
I have seen a repeated messages debug is coming all the time even i'm not powering the esp32 publisher.
Is it normal or i have done something wrong?
when i check to my subscriber esp, those data always coming even i don't power up my publisher esp32
thank you for your attention
NB here is my nodered graph
and one thing
my big goal is to use 4 esp32 to sharing some data between all of them
Is it possible to do that with mqtt and node red?
Assuming the subscribe nodes and publish nodes are all connected to the same broker, it looks like you have created an MQTT loop.
You should never publish to the topic you are subscribed to. The message just goes round and round your network, usually ending up in crashing node-red.
oh ok i understand
thank you very much for your reply
but how i suppose to connect with my others esp32?
You use a topic convention (either your own design or homie)
ESP1 subscribes to
ESP2 subscribes to
thank you very much
i think that is the answer i need
hii sory to disrupt you again
I'm still little bit confusing
may i ask one more?
i have tried like this
(publish)esp1/temperature ----->(subscribe) esp2/command
but the message is not received by my esp32 subs
I need direct communication between 2 esp32
no toggle or inject
thank you for your hospitality and patience
Why would it.
- If you subscribe to
hello you need to publish to
- If you publish to
esp1/temperature you should subscribe to
You dont even need node-red in this at all. The ESPs will simply talk to the broker as 2 clients.
You can do something like this...
ESP2 → ESP1
ESP1 - subscribe to
ESP2 - publish to
ESP1 → ESP2
ESP2 - subscribe to
ESP1 - publish to
Use whatever topics you like but they should make sense and should be unique.
Without meaning to be cheeky, I think you should spend an hour reading up on MQTT - there are tonnes of videos on youtube and lots of info around the web. Get familiar with the basics before you continue.
well thank you
that clarify my doubt
the big picture why i want use node-red is in the end after all direct communication i want to store all the value from 4 esp to my mysql.
thank you once again for clarify this for me
i got it now
