[MQTT](http://mqtt.org/) is a message-queue based protocol to exchange messages across devices. MQTT implementations like Paho MQTT, Mosquitto and Adafruit IO are quite popular for communication across IoT devices. You can interact with an MQTT service through this plugin to build any arbitrary complex message-based logic across your Platypush devices.

You can also communicate the other way around: you can programmatically send pushes to Pushbullet from Platypush using the [plugin](https://platypush.readthedocs.io/en/latest/platypush/plugins/pushbullet.html) and you can build rules in Tasker on your mobile device to execute specific actions depending on the received message - for example start ringing if you say "find my phone" to the assistant, play a song by URI on the Spotify app, open Google Maps with the directions from your home to a specific place, and so on.

Some of the musicians who ended up on this page probably know the [MIDI protocol](http://www.indiana.edu/~emusic/361/midi.htm). Platypush allows you to register a custom MIDI device that can send messages to the OS MIDI sequencer. It's like tricking your machine to think that Platypush is a MIDI keyboard or drum machine. You can for instance create some instrument tracks in LMMS or FruityLoops, link them to your Platypush MIDI source, and play notes through any kind of events that Platypush can process - you can use a Leap Motion to play notes by just waving your hand, use a proximity sensor, play notes with switches and buttons, and so on, the only limit being your creativity.

# MQTT plugin
[Plugin reference](https://platypush.readthedocs.io/en/latest/platypush/plugins/mqtt.html)
[Plugin reference](https://docs.platypush.tech/en/latest/platypush/plugins/mqtt.html)
[MQTT](http://mqtt.org/) is a message-queue based protocol to exchange messages across devices. MQTT implementations like Paho MQTT, Mosquitto and Adafruit IO are quite popular for communication across IoT devices. You can interact with an MQTT service through this plugin to build any arbitrary complex message-based logic across your Platypush devices. The asynchronous nature of MQTT makes it a better candidate over the HTTP plugin to deliver messages to other devices if you don't mind much about the response. An HTTP call to the Flask server to turn on the lights, for example, requires the sender to wrap the request into an HTTP message, the receiver to react immediately on that while the sender is synchrounously waiting for an answer, execute the light control action (which might take a while), and then wrap the response into an HTTP message back to the sender. Compare it instead with a message-queue based implementation, where you send the message to a queue where the receiver is listening and as soon as the receiver is available it will pick it up - no need for the sender to hang for the response. Also, the message queue doesn't require the receiver to be directly accessible (through IP/hostname and port) to the sender, as it happens in an HTTP interaction. The sender can send a message to the queue, hosted by an MQTT server, and as long as the receiver (or any receiver) is listening on the same queue, the message will be picked up.
