Open MQTT data

If you want to see how Thingsee data looks in a real use-case, then follow the instructions below to connect to our open MQTT data-stream. This stream is coming from our office sensors, and every sensor and its use-case is explained below.

If you can’t use MQTT and need to get the data to your own API, then just make a simple script that connects to the live MQTT data stream and pushes everything e.g. to your own REST API as is. Do not change the payload, so that your endpoint gets the data as it would have been send directly from Thingsee OPERATIONS CLOUD.
