smartDEN Maxi IoT - I/O Relay Module MQTT, HTTP with DIN RAIL BOX
smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ is an Ethernet module (IP controller) that can be used in a wide range of remote sensors monitoring, home automation control, environmental monitoring and data-acquisition applications. Thank to its multi-channel design (8 digital inputs, 4 analog inputs, 4 temperature inputs, 8 SPDT relays and 2 analog outputs) this device can perform simultaneously a variety of measurement and control functions. The Web interface allows users to configure the smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ, as well as to monitor/control input/output channels. Supported by DRMv3 Software. smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ provides both MQTT and XML/JSON interface for integration with third-party developed applications. Works with Home Assistant, Domoticz and OpenHAB home automation systems as well as with Node-RED IoT platform.

Please note the product does not come with power supply adapter that you may need. We offer suitable 12V or 24V adapters http://denkovi.com/power-supply-adapters
smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ is shipped with one NTC thermistor (temperature) sensor B57500M Epoxy Resin (up to 4 such sensors are supported by singe module). However additional sensors can be ordered from our store from these links:
The module has 4 analog inputs 0-10V which can be used also with every analog output sensor within this voltage range. You can check our other sensors as well for the analog inputs: LM35DZ (temperature), LM335Z (temperature), HIH-4000 (humidity), TSL250R (light), GP2Y0A21YK (proximity), Voltage Transducer 0-300V AC In, 0-10V DC Out, Current Transducer 0-50A AC In, 0-10V DC Out
Example 1. Controlling electrical appliances remotely
Example 2. Monitoring sensors online
Example 3. Controlling electrical devices depending on sensors values automatiacally (PC used only for configuration)
Example 4. Web based thermo-regulator
Example 5. smartDEN IP-Maxi-XX (including smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ) has the unique capability to act like "differential" thermoregulator (control relay depending on two analog inputs values difference)
Example 6. smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ used in application for counting customers in shops
Example 7. smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ analog outputs can be used for diming led lights (not directly, but using led driver 0/1 - 10V)

Access smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ from Node-RED
Node-RED is a flow-based programming platform for the Internet of Things. We prepared small example for communication between Node-RED and our device. More info about Node-RED and denkovi modules: here
Access smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ from mobile devices
Android App DAE-aModules
Some useful information:
Access via software DRMv3
This device is supported by DRMv3 Software.
The device can be found in the device list under the default name: smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQTT or smartDEN IP-Maxi-XML
The device can be controlled by smartDEN IP-32IN Input Module over the network
This is the so called BOX-TO-BOX mode. An input from smartDEN IP-32IN Input module can control over the network (ethernet/internet) relay from current module. Meantime it is also possible to control the relays and inputs from mobile devices, web browser... Please check out our application note DAE-AN016 for more information.
Control smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ via MQTT
smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ relays can be controlled by MQTT V3.1.1 messages. The module subscribes to a topic like SmartDEN_MQTTMaxi/E8EADA123456/Set/RS1 and the publisher (laptop, smartphone) sends a message like 0 or 1 to turn ON and OFF the relay. For full MQTT commands list, please refer to the product documentation.
Access smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ from browser
Control smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ via HTTP GET Request and receive the reply in XML or JSON format
For software integrators - as usually, the module supports HTTP GET requests with JSON/XML reply.
smartDEN IP-Maxi-MQ HTTP GET request concept
Sample JSON GET request:
Sample XML GET request:
Please refer to the documentation for more information what is the command format and what parameters are supported.
XML and JSON GET request / reply

- Problem: There is an access to the device via PING and Denkovi Finder "see" it, however it is not possible to open it's web server via any browser (the HTTP port is correct as well).
- Solution: Some antivirus software (like Avast for example) may block the HTTP traffic to the device. Be sure this type of communication is enabled by your antivirus/firewall software.
