In this article we will learn how to install, configure and run Bevywise IoT Simulator. As there is no step-by-step guide for installing Bevywise IoT Simulator, I think this guide will help people to get started with it.

 

Bevywise IoT Simulator

 

Following instructions are for installing, configuring and running Bevywise IoT Simulator on Windows 8.1 system

 

Prerequisite(s):

 

Download and install Bevywise IoT Simulator on your PC or laptop

 

Setup and Configuration:

 

Let’s assume Bevywise iot simulator’s installation root folder as

 

C:\Program Files\Bevywise\IotSimulator

 

The above path will be referenced as <ROOT_PATH> in the rest of the tutorial

 

1) First place the license.dat file at the following location:

 

<ROOT_PATH>\license\

 

Note: You can obtain the license by directly contacting the Bevywise team

 

Note: If you are using a trial version then you can skip this step

 

2) Download and install MYSQL for windows from the following link:

 

 

Note: Download mysql-installer-community-8.0.18.0.msi whose size is approximately at least 415MB

 

3) Download the latest zipped version of wget from the following link:

 

 

Note: After downloading extract the zip to any location

 

4) Copy the location of wget.exe and add it to the MS Window’s PATH environment variable

 

Note: For clear instructions on how to add the location to PATH variable, refer this page and scroll to the end of the page

 

5) Download and install Python 2.7 from the following link:

 

 

Note: Don’t change the default location of installation while you are installing Python 2.7

 

Note: Also select “Add Python 2.7 to the PATH” option while installing

 

6) Open db.conf file at the location <ROOT_PATH>\conf\ and do the following:

 

Take care that DB_SERVER is set to MYSQL as follows:

 

DB_SERVER = MYSQL

 

Take care that MYSQL_PASSWORD is set to the password of MySQL root user which you will give while installing MySQL software which should be as follows:

 

MYSQL_PASSWORD = 123456

 

Note: In my case it was 123456; Replace it with your MySQL password

 

Save the file and close it

 

7) Open command prompt and navigate to <ROOT_PATH>\bin\ and type the following:

 

installer.bat

 

When you hit enter, the above batch file will download the remaining necessary software from Internet

 

Running Bevywise IoT Simulator:

 

1) Open command prompt and navigate to <ROOT_PATH>\bin\ and type the following:

 

runbroker.bat

 

The above batch file will create a MQTT Broker and listen for connections

 

If runbroker.bat executes successfully you should be able to see the following messages in the command prompt:

 

MQTTRoute for Bevywise IoT Simulator
Bevywise MQTTRoute – Trial Version – expires on …
Starting MQTT Broker at port – 1883

 

Note: Don’t close the command prompt; Just minimize it

 

2) Open another command prompt and navigate to <ROOT_PATH>\bin\ and type the following:

 

runsimulator.bat

 

The above batch file will run the IoT simulator and open a web page in the browser automatically with the following URL:

 

 

In the command prompot you will see the following messages:
