Here’s an interesting idea for those who are interested! Sadly I don’t have the time to actually do it (new job, first daughter coming)
There’s an adapter already created for virtual things, this allows us to play around with, well, virtual things, but what if we could map those virtual things to MQTT topics & messages?
So, an example:
After configuring the MQTT broker settings, a user would be able to map:
OnOffPropertycould be mapped to 2 MQTT topics (but usually the same) with a configurable message…
- Similarly a
BrightnessPropertycould be mapped to 2 MQTT topics, just as before to read & write the value set.
This approach is what about a 100% of MQTT dashboards for android use, and could be the missing link for wider adoption.
