For some of our products, we offer you the option of creating personal access data for our MQTT server during setup. If necessary, you can use this server to provide device, sensor, configuration data and the like. sync between our apps and devices.

The processing of synchronized data takes place on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, as part of the deployment of our MQTT server. Your username and, if applicable, the device ID are pseudonyms, i.e. without the use of additional information, they do not identify any natural person.

Incoming MQTT messages are immediately forwarded to your linked devices. Messages that have the "retain" bit set are stored until they are replaced by newer ones, or possibly until the server is restarted. This prevents the event of one of your devices missing a message. Messages without retain bit are discarded immediately after forwarding.
