Theengs mobile app

I’m excited :grin: to announce the release of Theengs Android mobile application, the application uses Theengs Decoder to read data from BLE devices and display those to your mobile,


you can download it on Google Play (paid app)
Get it on Google Play

To stick with the spirit of OpenMQTTGateway the app can also be used as a gateway to an MQTT broker! So if you have an Android touch screen, you can install the app and configure it to read BLE sensor data and push it to Home Assistant.
Note that if you want to run the integration in the background this is possible as an experimental :test_tube: feature (we need your feedback on this)

More information on the app documentation:

We came a long way :sweat_smile: from removing the decoding of BLE sensors from OpenMQTTGateway, creating a dedicated library, creating a gateway, a Home Assistant Addon a data explorer and now a mobile application!

And you know what, this is not the end, we have plans to release the app for other platforms :muscle:

Hello! Thank you for working on this project. I’m trying to use the Android App with Mosquitto. How is one supposed to set up autodiscover with this arrangement?


If you add your homeassistant ip, 1883 as a port, and a username/password you should see connected below:

Once done you can connect to your broker with a client like mqtt explorer to see the data coming.
With 1.2.0 version Home Assistant discovery is enable by default, so if you have compatible devices you should see them below home/TheengsApp with the real time data. And see the sensor definition into homeassistant topic.

If you get to this point, the sensor entities should be automatically created into HA and visible from the MQTT integration or the Settings->Devices page.

Let me know if you need more help.

Thank you for the quick reply! I have all that configured. I can see all my BLE devices in the app and in MQTT explorer. Just as you described.
However, the auto discovery isn’t occurring. Just to be clear, I’m using Mosquitto hosted in HA. I used my HA credentials in Theengs and in MQTT Explorer.
I also made sure to set the discovery prefix to “homeassistant” as per the mosquitto config.

Mosquitto log if that helps. The address is my Android with Theengs. It looks like it times out the connection. Unsure why that is.

In the system option of the MQTT integration do you have this activated:

Yes, that is enabled.

Do you

Do you see also the sensors definition into homeassistant topic ?
