Re: How To Activate An Output w/MQTT & No Rules

David, Could you post the Node Red flow so I could see how you set up each node in the flow?

Re: How To Activate An Output w/MQTT & No Rules

David, anything you could post would be greatly appreciated!! Node Red flow and screen shots of the ESP Easy Device menus especially. I'm especially interested in how the Device settings page in ESP Easy is setup. As well as how you configured the mqtt out node and the node that is issuing the paylo...

Re: How To Activate An Output w/MQTT & No Rules

After spending hours of trying different topic phrases without success, I have given up on MQTT and switched to HTTP. I had success with the very first HTTP command.
But I will keep looking for examples or tutorials from someone else that has been able to get this to working using Node Red.

Re: How To Activate An Output w/MQTT & No Rules

That's where I get confused. To me a switch is an input signal to the 8266. I have been using output since it is a signal coming out of the 8266 to the relay.

Re: How To Activate An Output w/MQTT & No Rules

But how is the 8266 that will be controlling the relay configured? What kind of device type settings are used?

Re: How To Activate An Output w/MQTT & No Rules

I have two ESP8266s with Mega and would like to be able to send it MQTT commands via Node Red to activate output pins to control relays. A MQTT broker is installed on a RPi and I can receive MQTT topics like temp and switch closures coming from one 8266. However I can not figure out how to send MQTT...

How To Activate An Output w/MQTT & No Rules

Can anyone give me some guidance on how to activate an output using MQTT without writing a rule?
I already have a broker running and can read inputs. Just can't figure out how to send a MQTT topic to turn on an output.

Re: Longer Range?

Thanks Shardan. I just received a couple of Wemos d1 minis with external antenna connectors and have a 12db gain patch antenna to try. I think clear line of sight will be fine but 2.4 GHz isn't going to give much penetration of walls. I've looked around at 900 MHz but it appears I'm on my own to de...

Longer Range?

I've been blown away with the ease and simplicity of using esp easy and various esp8266 modules for temperature monitoring and publishing the data using mqtt. But I have an application that needs better distance and penetration of around 100 meters. I've read about LoRa but it seems to mostly interf...

Adafruit Feather Doing Manual Reboots

Running version 2.0.0 dev12 on a Huzzah Feather. The only thing I have configured is monitoring a switch on one GPIO. No rules enabled. Load is running at 100% and warm boot count is at 29 after 12 hours of running. Uptime is normally no longer that an hour or less then another manual reboot. I have...

Re: MQTT Publish Only On Input Change

I have v2.0.0 dev12 running on a Adafruit Feather. Task 1 is setup for a switch input on GPIO-13 with switch button type set to normal switch. I have a MQTT controller enabled and can see the published result on Node Red. But MQTT is publishing at the Delay rate set for the input. What do I change ...
