Jump to: navigation, search

ESP Easy offers a set of commands to control hardware devices and provide some basic local control using rules. There are several ways to launch commands on ESP Easy:

Protocol Syntax Extra information
HTTP http://<espeasyip>/control?cmd=<command> Send commands over the HTTP protocol.
MQTT <MQTT subscribe template>/cmd with payload: <command> Send commands over the MQTT protocol. As of current status this is obeyed only for the first controller in the list.
Serial (TTL) <command> Send commands using serial (RX/TX). Just type the <command>
UDP SendTo <unit nr>, <command> Send commands from one ESP Easy unit to another. Setup UDP peer-2-peer first.
Rules <command> Internally within ESP Easy. Just enter the <command> within an event block or conditional block.

Commands are divided into several classes:

Internal - Can be run from serial and rules engine
Rules -  Can be run from serial and rules engine
Plugin - Can be run from serial, rules engine, HTTP, MQTT
Special - This can be used from any source

If you want to use internal or rules commands using HTTP/MQTT, setup an event within the rules section and remotely launch the "event" command.
