Google IoT Core integration for Mongoose OS

This library implements integration of Mongoose OS with Google IoT Core.

Setup cloud side

Install gcloud command line tool

Install beta components:

gcloud components install beta

Authenticate with Google Cloud:

gcloud auth login

Create cloud project - choose your unique project name:

gcloud projects create YOUR_PROJECT_NAME

Add permissions for IoT Core:

gcloud projects add-iam-policy-binding YOUR_PROJECT_NAME --role=roles/pubsub.publisher

Set default values for gcloud:

gcloud config set project YOUR_PROJECT_NAME

Create PubSub topic for device data:

gcloud beta pubsub topics create iot-topic

Create PubSub subscription for device data:

gcloud beta pubsub subscriptions create --topic iot-topic iot-subscription

Create device registry:

gcloud beta iot registries create iot-registry --region europe-west1 --event-pubsub-topic=iot-topic

Setup device side

Setup WiFi:


Register device on Google IoT Core. If a device is already registered, this command deletes it, then registers again:

mos gcp-iot-setup --gcp-project YOUR_PROJECT_NAME --gcp-region europe-west1 --gcp-registry iot-registry


Run mos ui to enter Web UI. Specify your device address (serial port) to connect to your device and reboot it. You should see the following messages:

mgos_gcp_init        GCP client for my-project/us-central1/my-registry/my-es256-device, EC key in ec_private.pem
mgos_mqtt_ev         MQTT Connect (1)
mgos_mqtt_ev         MQTT CONNACK 0
mgos_mqtt_ev         Subscribing to 'my-es256-device/rpc'
mgos_mqtt_ev         Subscribing to 'my-es256-device/rpc/#'

Default firmware publishes an MQTT message whenever the "Flash" button is pressed:

Published: yes topic: /devices/my-es256-device/events message: {"free_ram":30080,"total_ram":51912}
