mc-Gateway / Re: The future of the McGateway
« Last post by mc-T2 on Today at 02:10:44 pm »
@berstern - Thanks for the comment!

Good timing - We are actually exploring options to allow for a built-in cellular connection on the mcGateway. Not sure of the timeline of this right now but it would be great as it means you can then deploy the mcGateway anywhere and start to collect data from your mcDevices.

Keep in mind that you can do this today, you just require a cellular Ethernet or WIFI modem which you can then connect to the mcGateway. We've done some testing with some inexpensive ones available on Amazon and you can also look for options with your local mobile company.

USB to output data - No, the USB is strictly for powering the gateway and the USB port (only on the mcGateway110) is meant for updating the device to the latest mcOS (firmware). the new mcGateway120 does not have a USB port as it receives new mcOS directly from our new mcCloud system!
You can learn more about the soon to be released mcCloud system here:

and here:

mcCloud will be released very soon and we are going to offer any existing users who have legacy hardware (mcMod110's and mcGateway110's) the option to upgrade to new hardware at a discounted price. Keep an eye out for this announcement on the forum and in your email!
Hope that helps, let us know if you have any other questions
mc-Gateway / The future of the McGateway

Does anyone know if the Mc-Gateway will be sold in the future with integrated 4g, LTE etc. networking to avoid any hassle with home networks?

And is there any way using the USB or Ethernet port on the gateway to output data to another device?

Thank you,

@jeroens - Not with Tempy. Tempy devices will direct their information to the website (where you will sign up for an account and start to view incoming data from your devices). You won't be able to modify the device programming or direct the information to any other services with the specific Tempy devices.

That said, you will be able to purchase the unaltered devices that we are using for Tempy yourself and then can program them and direct the information to any service that accepts webhooks (HTTPS). We are also going to be building an MQTT integration into the new mcCloud service.
Hope that helps!

Will it also be possible to get live data from the cloud through an api or for instance mqtt?

Hello all,

We wanted to announce to you a new Indiegogo campaign that we just released today!

Tempy is a wireless temperature and humidity sensing system that monitors and reports live data directly to your phone, tablet or computer. Create custom text message and email alerts using the Tempy application notifying you of undesirable climate changes detected by your Tempy sensors. Avoid expensive temperature and humidity related damages such as frozen pipes and mold before they happen, while on vacation. Built for both indoor and outdoor use, Tempy is ready to report in any environment.

Check out the campaign here:

We'd love to get your support on this product and look forward to any backing that our forum users can provide!

Additional info

Tempy is not only a great ready-to-go solution but it should also showcase how the mcThings platform can be used to create easy to implement IoT solutions! For any user out there that has an idea in mind for creating an IoT solution using our platform, Tempy is a perfect example of how the hardware can be developed and used to bring valuable data into a software/cloud application to visualize and make the data valuable.
mc-Platform General / Re: HTTP Requests

Hi Mortiz,

Glad you asked this question! We are in the middle of transitioning our platform to our new version which includes mcCloud. With mcCloud, you actually send data to the cloud using webhooks (HTTPS)! The new system has many changes and will be the platform we will be supporting moving forward.
With mcCloud, you have an enhanced security setup and you register devices within the mcCloud portal. You still write your script for the devices in mcStudio but instead of deploying them to device individually, you upload the script/application to your mcCloud portal. From there, you can easily and wirelessly deploy the applications to multiple devices at the same time! You can also direct information from a device to multiple applications that can receive HTTPS.

Important info:
  • The new system requires an mcGateway120. The original mcGateway110's will not function on the new system
  • mcCloud will not work with mcModule110 devices. You will require mcModule120 devices. All other devices can be moved to this new system and new devices ordered from mcThings will now be sent out programmed to use the new system
  • We will be keeping the files and details for the older system on our website but we will not be supporting the older version of the platform
  • mcCloud will eventually be a paid subscription service. However, we will be offering a free tier, up to 25 devices, for everyone to get working with the system! Pricing for mcCloud is very low, in the order of $0.50 - $10 per year, per device (depending on how many devices you have on the system

mcCloud will be released to the public shortly and, although we have not yet officially announced this yet, we will be offering a discounted mcGateway120 and mcModule120 devices to our existing users! This means for anyone that has the older equipment OR has purchased new equipment from mcThings (Either from Kickstarter or from our website store), you will have the option to get more gear at a discounted priced to use on the new system.
To provide some further information on mcCloud, you can check out the below (unpublished link) that has some getting started videos for using mcCloud! Check this out:

Let us know if you have any questions. We will be doing an announcement on mcCloud shortly and will also be contacting our existing users in regards to the discounted gear.
mc-Platform General / HTTP Requests
« Last post by Moritz on March 02, 2018, 06:55:02 am »
Hey Team,

I was looking through the documents to find out if I can create a http request via the sensors, but I didn't find any information related to this.
Is it possible to read data from a http source? I'd like to call a url in order to bypass the use of mqtt and ifttt.

Did you make a case for it?

I'm looking to 3d print some cases for different batteries also.
Here are some recent updates…

As I mention above, after upgrading the mcGW to the new Host & application firmware I lost wi-fi connectivity on the mcGW and was forced to use the Ethernet cable. Since then all the sensors have been reporting at their expected intervals without any lockups.
Maybe NorGer can confirm this if he can disconnect the wi-fi connection and  use Ethernet connection instead and see if issue is resolved as well?

A few more details that maybe worth mentioning. In the past I would get up the morning after leaving the sensors on all night and 100% of the time there would be at least two sensors that stopped reporting over MQTT. However, the beacons seemed to keep reporting. Because only two of the four sensors would stop reporting, I suspected maybe a bug in my script code so I would open mcStudio, connect to the mcGW, connect to the module and run the debugger only to find the code working properly. I would then also begin to see the MQTT messages to start reporting again.

Maybe there is some issue with wi-fi connection and MQTT locking up and when I connect to the gateway via mcStudio; somehow that clears it up. Just thinking out loud. Any suggestions?
This platform is very frustrating.

I upgraded to GW Version 0.9-958 and LP Lan Version 0.0.615. Now mcStudio can only see the GW when the ethernet cable is connected. The GW does not show up when in wi-fi mode.

Wi-fi settings are the same in GW config as before the upgrade.
