Simulate dynamic messages — MQTT
We are happy to share the recent update of the IOT Simulator which can resemble a real device and simulate dynamic messages on every message with two types of message format — TEXT & JSON.
Simulate dynamic messages
The IoT Simulator supports four types of dynamic values to be sent as part of messages.
System Variables — The messages always need to carry client specific values like Client Id, System time, etc. The system variables help you assign these values dynamically to one of the tuple of JSON or to the Text Message.
Random — The devices often publish messages with the current states of the device. These devices states are often predefined set like ON | OFF or LOW | MEDIUM | HIGH or something similar. Such states can be randomly generated using this dynamic type.
Range — When you want to simulate a human body temperature sensor, you often need to set a range within which the values vary. The Range can be used to simulate such scenarios. The human temperature can be set in a range of 97 deg F to 99 deg F
Constant — Every sensor need to send the details of the location of the sensor which will be fixed. For those messages, the Constant type can be used.
Download the FREE IoT Simulator now. you can simulate up to 25 devices.
