Problem Connecting to 3rd Party MQTT Apps.

by smarthome322 on Wed Apr 29, 2020 1:51 am

--> I made a SmartHome project using NodeMCU and 4CH Relays... I am using IFTTT service to connect the Adafruit IO to my Google Assistant to give commands....

--> It works perfectly, and I can control the Relays either with Google Assistant or directly from https://io.adafruit.com on browser.

--> Since it is not very convenient to log into Adafruit IO to toggle the controls on and off, I went to the Playstore and searched for some 3rd party MQTT apps (since Adafruit IO doesn't have their own).

--> After sometime, I finally settled with this "Mqtt Dashboard - IoT and Node-RED controller" link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.app.vetru.mqttdashboard .
Since this has a good UI and also has good rating on the Playstore, (although there are other apps which work perfectly with Adafruit IO, but their UI simply sucks :( .........)

--> Problem was I couldn't connect to Adafruit MQTT Server, but I was successful in connecting to the same from other apps (from Playstore) and also could publish/receive, but wasn't working with this app (link above).

--> I entered the same credentials (same as the others apps that worked) and also checked with the API documentation, I tried with SSL connection too, but nothing seems to work with this app.

--> I suggest you to try the same and reply if you have the same problem/found the solution. For any further info, please leave a reply...........

Thanks a lot :)..............................

Clearly this is my first post, feel free to leave suggestions below......... :)

Good morning,

I have the same problem. I just can connect using this website. I can't connect using any App. I'm developping my own App. I can't connect using it, also.

Witch App did you connect successfully?

Thank you.

Hey, Thanks for Replying :) .......

--> I was successful with these apps ...........

"MQTT Client" https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=at.tripwire.mqtt.client
(i haven't tried publishing yet with this).
but beware this app keeps running in the background and consumes a lot of battery...

and "MyMQTT" https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=in.dc297.mqttclpro
works good but UI sucks (i haven't tried publishing yet with this).

and "MQTT Dash" https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.routix.mqttdash
fully functional (i have published to feeds with this successfully) and the best UI of all these (but not up to the mark).

and "IoT MQTT Panel" [url}https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=snr.lab.iotmqttpanel.prod[/url]
successfully connected and also published data again bad UI...

and "IoTOnOff" https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=goliath.mobile.device.iotonoff
i'm not exactly sure about this, this was working previously but i'm just not able to remember the settings what i had dialed in previously (and also not a good option bcz of UI).

among all these ur best bet would be "MQTT Dash"...

also i would like to share my settings/configs... you will be asked to enter these to connect.. (you can find these in the API Documentation also, but beware you'll probably loose interest xD) (and sorry for the image format, lol)
