MQTT help in setting up second Pi with DHT11


#1

I recently added my first sensor via MQTT but would now like to duplicate the setup on a second Pi - do I need to add another instance of BYOT or would the second Pi sensor data show up on the first dashboard?

Hi @shovelheadman,

For the 2nd MQTT-connected Pi, you will need to create a new BYOT device which will have its own MQTT Username/Password/Client ID.

Keep in mind that once both devices are connected and transmitting data to their individual device dashboards, you can create Project dashboards that allow you to combine only the widgets you like from multiple disparate devices on the same dashboard. So ultimately you will be able to view everything you like on the same dashboard.
