ruuvi-go-gateway is a software that tries to replicate Ruuvi Gateway MQTT and HTTP POST (for custom servers) features so that users without a physical Ruuvi Gateway can still use software and tools created for the gateway, such as RuuviBridge.


  • Supports publishing BLE data to MQTT in real time in same format as Ruuvi Gateway
  • Supports sending latest BLE data via HTTP POST in same format as Ruuvi Gateway
  • Can send either just Ruuvi data or all scanned BLE data (configurable, like with the Gateway)


  • Linux-based OS (the bluetooth stack varies too greatly between operating systems and it would be simply too much work to support all of them separately)
  • Bluetooth adapter supporting Bluetooth Low Energy
  • 10MB of disk space
  • 20MB of RAM (typical usage around 10MB)


Check config.sample.yml for a sample config. By default the gateway assumes to find a file called config.yml in the current working directory, but that can be overridden with -config /path/to/config.yml command line flag.


Recommended method is using Docker with the prebuilt dockerimage: for which you can use the provided composefile

Without docker you can download prebuilt binaries from the releases page. For production use it’s recommended to set up as a service.

Note that running the standalone binaries without root requires some extra capabilities be set to the binary to grant it permissions to scan for ble, this can be done with:

sudo setcap 'cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin+eip' ./ruuvi-go-gateway
