We are now ready to implement our first concentrator. The goal will be to create a concentrator that includes both our sensor and our actuator into a single physical device. It will work seamlessly with the controller application developed in Chapter 10, The Controller, since each embedded node registers itself as a separate thing. The details of this implementation can be found in the
ConcentratorXmpp project, in the Mastering Internet of Things GitHub repository.
Instantiating the concentrator is easy. We first add a reference to the
Waher.Networking.XMPP.Concentrator.UWP NuGet package to our project (if we're not doing an UWP app, we add the
Waher.Networking.XMPP.Concentrator NuGet). We then simply create the object, with a reference to the XMPP client object we use, and reference to all the root data sources we define. We will define only one data source, the
