The Internet of Things (IoT) is the fastest growing technology market. Industries are embracing IoT technologies to improve operational expenses, product life, and people's well-being. Mastering Internet of Things starts by presenting IoT fundamentals and the smart city. You will learn the important technologies and protocols that are used for the Internet of Things, their features, corresponding security implications, and practical examples on how to use them. This book focuses on creating applications and services for the Internet of Things. Further, you will learn to create applications and services for the Internet of Things. You will be discover various interesting projects and understand how to publish sensor data, control devices, and react to asynchronous events using the XMPP protocol. The book also introduces chat, to interact with your devices. You will learn how to automate your tasks by using Internet of Things Service Platforms as the base for an application. You will understand the subject of privacy, requirements they should be familiar with, and how to avoid violating any of the important new regulations being introduced.

Implementing a concentrator

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

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 MeteringTopology data source. It is the default data source for embedded...
