Self hosted A.IO?

by richa1 on Thu Nov 12, 2015 1:10 pm

In the realm of possibilities, how difficult would it be to set up something like a self hosted Adafruit IO on a small server, raspberry pi, or even an Intel Galileo? Something that would just handle local wireless IOT devices but still maintain the IFT^3 web hooks?

Basically I would like to see if I can get a local network of IOT devices to function through a local server over Wi-Fi such that the devices themselves are never connected directly to the global internet.

Thanks,
Richard A

There's several MQTT brokers you can download and use locally.

If you are familiar with Node.js Adafruit has a compatible version of the IO server on their github page.

Though I am not supper up to speed with Node.js, I do know of a few people who are. I would rather focus on the hardware and front end of IOT stuff, but I would also like to try and build a better network architecture for large IOT clusters like you would find in a smart home.

Thanks,
