Default IoT. Internet of Things?

Has anyone tried Mirth Connect with IoT yet?

Don't know if it makes any sense but just would like to try out some new things with Mirth.

Makes perfect sense, yes! Mirth Connect is usually used in large enterprise-level servers, but it can also scale way down if you need it. For example you can put it on a Raspberry Pi. Basically any place you can run a JRE (which is basically anywhere).

Most IoT products nowadays communicate via HTTP, so it's easy to interface with it using the HTTP connectors in MC. Even if it uses plain TCP, that's still possible. And even if it uses a raw serial port (for really old machines), we have the Serial Connector commercial extension to handle that.

Always include what Mirth Connect version you're working with. Also include (if applicable) the code you're using and full stacktraces for errors (use CODE tags). Posting your entire channel is helpful as well; make sure to scrub any PHI/passwords first.

Imagine sending health analytics from smart watches/smartphones to Mirth Connect then to a health care facility with HL7 format.

Thanks for the reply.
I have created a iot device using a raspberry. My next step will be to create a iot gateway using mirth as you described.

And indeed medical devices sending data to mirth could be a way to go. Just imagine what mirth can do with that data.

The Things Network is the first open source, decentralized infrastructure for the Internet of Things. The community edition is free for fair use.

We are a global community of 22878 people over 90 countries building a global Internet of Things data network.

We use a long range and low power radio frequency protocol called LoRaWAN.
Orderen my first IoT gateway.
Build my first weather station (yes hardware!)
Data is send over the LoRaWan (http://meetjestad.net/data/sensors_r...r=156&limit=50).

Now to capture this data via MC. The next chalange!!!
