I have 3 nodemcu's(ESP32) each connected with a sensor, from which I get data and send it to aws IoT-core. How can I send all 3 sensor's data by a single MQTT subscription? The below code is for a single MQTT using one nodemcu.

#include <PubSubClient.h>

float rho = 1.204; // density of air 

// parameters for averaging and offset

const char* ssid = ""; //Provide your SSID
const char* password = "";          // Provide Password

ei_out is the topic I have subscribed in iot-core, I wish to have one more ei_out_1 from another nodemcu

  • ei_out is the topic I have subscribed in iot-core, I wish to have one more ei_out_1 from another nodemcu -- So... have another called ei_out_1...? I don't understand what you're asking. If you want to send to a different topic then send to a different topic. – Majenko May 1 at 12:52
  • How can I send all 3 sensor's data by a single MQTT subscription? .... same way that you would place three words on one piece of paper? .... BTW, data is sent by publishing, subscription is for receiving data – jsotola May 1 at 15:45
  • You're not subscribing to ei_out but only to a topic called ei_in (defined in reconnect()). What you want is to publish. At the moment, you're using only ei_out to publish (client.publish("ei_out") in loop()). You can freely create additional topics (with different names than "ei_out") to publish data from other sensors. – StarCat May 1 at 17:26
  • Publishing has to have an explicit topic. Subscribing has two wild cards # which means anything below this level in the hierarchy and + which means anything at the next level of the hierarchy. The division between hierarchical levels is the / character. So if sensor one publishes on sensor/1/out/temp1 and sensor two publishes on sensor/2/out/temp1 you can subscribe to sensor/+/out/temp1 to read from both sensors. You can subscribe on sensor/1/out/+ to read anything sent by sensor one. You can subscribe to sensor/# to read any output from any sensor. – Dougie May 2 at 13:52
  • change ei_out and ei_out_1 to ei/out and ei/out/1 to get the benefits of the hierarchical topic structure. The only hard part of this stuff is designing a sensible and coherent hierarchy for your topics. – Dougie May 2 at 13:55
