Mosquitto MQTT Server bundled with Hivemq’s web client.
This add-on is in a deprecated state!
This add-on is now deprecated. We highly recommend on switching to the
official Home Assistant Mosquitto add-on as an alternative.
This add-on will soon be removed from the add-on store.
This add-on combines the power of Hivemq’s web-based MQTT client, and the powerful Mosquitto broker (MQTT Server). With this, you can host your own MQTT server, and inspect/publish messages using the built-in web client!
- The Hivemq web service can connect to a WebSocket enabled MQTT Server, it will enable you to see or post messages to specific topics easily.
- The Mosquitto broker has multi-user support with ACL! This allows you to limit the access of an MQTT user to a specific topic.
- With the ACL support, you can have a separate user for every device that connects to your MQTT server.
- You can also have read-only users that cannot post messages.
ACL = access control list.
The installation of this add-on is pretty straightforward and not different in comparison to installing any other add-on.
- Install the “MQTT Server & Web client” add-on.
- Configure the options.
- Start the “MQTT Server & Web client” add-on.
- Check the logs of the “MQTT Server & Web client” add-on to see if everything went well.
