Release status: beta [box doku]
|Description||MQTT controller for remote controlled power sockets|
We have a bunch of remote controlled power sockets at the space, and wanted to control them via our space automation tools.
- A 433Mhz transmitter. Look at https://github.com/sui77/rc-switch/wiki/List_TransmitterReceiverModules for examples
We used a WeMos D1 mini board for the ESP8266. It's powered over USB, and provides 5V to the RF module. The Data pin of the module is connected to GPIO 4 (Pin D2), and works just fine with the 3.3V of that pin.
Send the following to the MQTT topic defined in
with the options
type- Type of RF sockets used, according to https://github.com/sui77/rc-switch/wiki/HowTo_OperateLowCostOutlets (which is missing type D). Only implemented types are "a" and "d" right now.
device_code- Whatever is set on the socket as address
