MQTT ia a machine-to-machine Internet of Things protocol which fits perfectly with the asynchronous model provided by Node. This talk will introduce MQTT, show how it can be easily used with Node and will illustrate the fun you can have interacting with the real world from Node by going through code snippets of an open source Node based home alarm system(https://github.com/mhdawson/HomeAlarm).

The alarm uses Node for control and status display, MQTT as the communication backbone and Raspberry PI and docker for deployment. The alarm has door and motion sensors to sense entry, alarm notifications through SMS messages, and captures and publishes pictures to the cloud on demand and in alarm situations.
