Back-end is made up of a database, mosquitto an opensource Mqtt Broker (web Sockets enabled) and some phyton code to catch the broker data and storing it in the database, Mongo was selected as database since it can handle JSON structures with out parsing data, witch makes data handling faster. and it also provides us to integrate other non structured data like General Weather forecasts from Publicly available APIs and also to serve our data to the community via API of our own.
