Discovered Device list is empty

Hi all,

I am new to the Shelly Setup; I try to explain what I have done so far.

1. Docker with mosquitto-eclipse running
2. MQTT Explorer connects to mosquitto-eclipse and I see "shellies/announce"
3. I have a MQTT Broker (Plugin MQTT-Connector) connected to the MQTT server (is green)
4. I try to add a Shelly PlugS but I do not see anything in the list

Any help?
For sure it is a dumb question :)

Thanks!

Ok, now I have enable MQTT on the plug (by default it was disabled, I did not know that);
I see the plug announced in the MQTT Explorer, but the list in still empty; maybe the topic counts?

Thanks

Re: Discovered Device list is empty

Here a screenshot

From my understanding, the shellyMQTT plugin looks for the "shellies" topic, am I right?
I added "shellies/" the subscribed topic inside the MQTT Connector

Re: Discovered Device list is empty

Have you made a device for the plug?

Have you made a trigger?

Re: Discovered Device list is empty

I tried to make a device by selecting "ShellyMQTT" as model, but it here where the device list is empty
And yes, I created a trigger as explained here

Re: Discovered Device list is empty

What version do you use?

try to get the latest here https://github.com/AaronLionsheep/ShellyMQTT/releases

normaly you should have a list of all type of devices to choose from.

try to restart the plugin.

Re: Discovered Device list is empty

But the menu plugin says the that latest version is 0.3.0 :)
Now I installed 0.7.1

BTW, I have created the trigger, but which action shall be fired when the trigger is met?

The attachment shows the drop down list when trying to add a device

Thanks

Re: Discovered Device list is empty

This is what I have when I print the subscribed topics:

Code: Select all
MQTT Connector                  Local MQTT: Current topic subscriptions:
   MQTT Connector                  Local MQTT: shellies/# (0)


"shellies" is the topic specified in the MQTT Connector device

Mqtt broker, the same name as your broker

Mqtt topic root, shellies/shellyplug-s-B4B29E

Message type, shellies

Re: Discovered Device list is empty

You should leave the action empty when you fire the trigger.

Re: Discovered Device list is empty

Ok, it works, the problem was the topic root, "shellies" was missing;´.

Very nice, thank you!
