SmartSpace is a project to enhance the space with Internet of Things type of devices and services.

SmartSpace consists of three components:

  • SpaceBus, a Mosquitto-based MQTT broker service that will allow users/devices/services to pass messages. SpaceBus features a controlled part for protected use (such as phone notifications) and an open part for general use
  • SmartSpace services, a variety of services that can connect to the SpaceBus, including Sergeant, Node-Red, Grafana, Influxdb, SIP monitoring and URL monitoring
  • SmartSpace devices, devices around the space that either act as consumers or publishers on the SpaceBus. Example: visual phone notification aids or automatic sign control based on isvhsopen



The SmartSpace repository is hosted on GitHub:
