This example shows how to connect to Cayenne using a manually specified Ethernet connection and send/receive sample data.
The CayenneMQTT Library is required to run this sketch. If you have not already done so you can install it from the Arduino IDE Library Manager.
1. Set the Cayenne authentication info to match the authentication info from the Dashboard.
2. Compile and upload the sketch.
3. A temporary widget will be automatically generated in the Cayenne Dashboard. To make the widget permanent click the plus sign on the widget.
//#define CAYENNE_DEBUG // Uncomment to show debug messages
#define CAYENNE_PRINT Serial // Comment this out to disable prints and save space
#include <CayenneMQTTEthernet.h>
//#include <CayenneMQTTEthernetW5500.h> // Uncomment this and comment out CayenneMQTTEthernet.h to use an Ethernet 2 shield or other Ethernet W5500 shield.
// You will need the Ethernet2 library installed. See the ArduinoEthernetW5500 example sketch for more info.
//#include <CayenneMQTTEthernetW5200.h> // Uncomment this and comment out CayenneMQTTEthernet.h to use an Ethernet W5200 shield.
// You will need the EthernetW5200 library installed. See the ArduinoEthernetW5200 example sketch for more info.
// Cayenne authentication info. This should be obtained from the Cayenne Dashboard.
char username[] = "MQTT_USERNAME";
char password[] = "MQTT_PASSWORD";
char clientID[] = "CLIENT_ID";
// Mac address should be different for each device in your LAN
byte arduino_mac[] = { 0xDE, 0xED, 0xBA, 0xFE, 0xFE, 0xED };
IPAddress arduino_ip(10, 0, 0, 20);
IPAddress dns_ip(8, 8, 8, 8);
IPAddress gateway_ip(10, 0, 0, 1);
IPAddress subnet_mask(255, 255, 255, 0);
void setup() {
Cayenne.begin(username, password, clientID, arduino_ip, dns_ip, gateway_ip, subnet_mask, arduino_mac);

// Default function for sending sensor data at intervals to Cayenne.
// You can also use functions for specific channels, e.g CAYENNE_OUT(1) for sending channel 1 data.
// Write data to Cayenne here. This example just sends the current uptime in milliseconds on virtual channel 0.
Cayenne.virtualWrite(0, millis());
// Some examples of other functions you can use to send data.
//Cayenne.celsiusWrite(1, 22.0);
//Cayenne.luxWrite(2, 700);
//Cayenne.virtualWrite(3, 50, TYPE_PROXIMITY, UNIT_CENTIMETER);
// Default function for processing actuator commands from the Cayenne Dashboard.
// You can also use functions for specific channels, e.g CAYENNE_IN(1) for channel 1 commands.
CAYENNE_LOG("Channel %u, value %s",, getValue.asString());
//Process message here. If there is an error set an error message using getValue.setError(), e.g getValue.setError("Error message");
