The Connection Information

  • Host: China Station: sensecap-openstream.seeed.cn Global Station: sensecap-openstream.seeed.cc
  • Port: 1883 for MQTT, or 8083 for MQTT Over WebSocket
  • ClientID: org-<Organization ID>-<Random ID>, replace <Orgnization ID> with you got from SenseCAP Portal, and replace <Random ID> with you randomly generated Numbers and lowercase letters.
  • Username: org-<Organization ID>, replace <Organization ID> with you got from dashboard (refer to the quickstart).
  • Password: Get Access API keys on your SenseCAP Portal “security /API Access Key” (refer to the quickstart).

Publish And Subscribe Model

SenseCAP OpenStream API implements “Publish And Subscribe Model”, as the MQTT protocol does. You can connect your server to SenseCAP OpenStream API through MQTT or MQTT Over WebSocket to communicate with the standard pub-sub protocol.

You can “publish” commands to platforms or devices and “subscribe” to receive messages. “subscribe” is the most common way to continuously monitor the telemetry data from devices.

Message Topic

Receive All Devices’ Telemeasuring Data

Topic: /device_sensor_data/<OrgID>/+/+/+/+

Receive Specified Device’s Telemeasuring Data

Topic Format: /device_sensor_data/<OrgID>/<DeviceEUI>/<Channel>/<Reserved>/<MeasurementID>

Field Description
OrgID Your “Organization ID”, you can find this on SenseCAP Portal. You own a unique Organization ID, and all the topics will need it.
DeviceEUI Unique identification of device
Channel A physical socket on the device for a sensor to be connected
Reserved Reserved
MeasurementID Please refer to “List of Measurement IDs” in this documentation

Topic can specify filtering conditions to implement listening on specified devices, channels and measurement types. For example, you can only listen for Device whose device ID is “2F000000000000”, then you can replace the <DeviceEUI> field with 2F000000000000.

The “2F000000000000” in this example must be a device that you have already bound to your account. And you should always remember to replace <OrgID> with your own “Organization ID”.

Message Body

New Measurement Data

{
    "value": 437,
    "timestamp": 1544151922137
}

This is a sensor measurement data uploaded by a device, which conforms to the JSON format and can be parsed by JSON parser. In general, for most functional requirements, a body needs to be used in conjunction with some fields in the topic.

Field Description
value Sensor’s Measurement Value
timestamp The collection timestamp of the data, unit millisecond
