I’ve been spamming @jchurch with PM’s, and thought I’d best give him a break.
Given that my Hubitat Node Red integration has errors, I’m transitioning away from Hubitat for Tasmota devices. I already run Node Red, so it’s no biggie.
I’ve got the commands working for Tasmota to Node Red, and have set up a MQTT broker. I know what all the QOS are, but what is best practise?
My main question is how do I store/poll the status of the lights/switches etc? In the Hubitat-Node-Red Nodes, the status was easily available. Do I have to subscribe to each light switch with a MQTT-in node, and then set the status as a flow/global variable?
Also, why is it called MQTT in, when it seems to be coming OUT from the MQTT database?
