Nothing in the connection log

Why isn’t my device log showing? The other blocks are working so I know my device is connected but nothing shows on my log. Am i using it wrong.

The screenshot you provided indicates that the selected device has never connected to our MQTT broker. It’s certainly possible for the rest of your dashboard blocks (also backed by this device) to be displaying data, as device state can be set in a workflow using the Device State Node, or by using our REST API. Neither of those would mark the device as “connected” as neither method establishes a connection between the device and the broker.

In fact, our weather walkthrough works in this way. No physical device ever connects to the broker, as all device state is set in a workflow.

Good information thanks for sharing
