Bosch XDK and Apache NiFi – serious IoT

Just got a Bosch XDK sensor to try out – seems like it could be the basis of a very functional environmental sensor. It has a bunch of hardware sensors in a nice little package that includes a battery, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and can be wall mounted. You can certainly do the same thing with a Raspberry Pi but it is not so convenient, especially when you need battery power.

The plan is to get MQTT working and hook it up to Apache NiFi to integrate it with my other Raspberry Pi based environmental sensors.
