Re: GreenSky MQTT Bridge Plugin (SmartThings Bridge)

Thanks for great plugin. Im using it with HASS,. How do you do it with dimmer status? The switch device only support on/off right?

Re: GreenSky MQTT Bridge Plugin (SmartThings Bridge)

I’m curious, can this be used to mirror indigo devices in ST? I’ve got a couple of things that have direct integration for controlling ST, so if ST was just a mirror of indigo that would make things a bit easier.

Yes it can. I've actually got a new version in the works, and so I've largely forgotten the capabilities of v1. I'll get it polished off and uploaded soon :)

Oh cool. I’ll have to get a hub to try it out with.

It occurs to me that anyone using Alexa with indigo might find that a suitable solution.

My main reason for developing the plugin was for Google Home, so it should be a perfect fit.

How is this being used with HASS?

Looking forward to the new plugin! I am currently using HASSIO for my MQTT needs because there just isn't a good reliable option for MQTT support for Indigo. Hoping the new version supports authentication, I have a username / password set on my broker and the current plugin doesn't seem to have a way to set them.

This is what Indigo is missing! Can't wait to test it:)

Re: GreenSky MQTT Bridge Plugin (SmartThings Bridge)

Just tried this plugin with a freshly flashed sonoff basic now running tasmota and HiveHQ broker for speed sake (will change later as free version limits to 25 connections). I created a switch with the plugin, set the command topic to “cmnd/sonoff/power” and hay presto a wifi controlled lamp via indigo for £5.

I cant seem to get status topic to work though. I have subscribed to the topic "stat/sonoff/POWER" which is seen (using debug and using an mqtt viewer) when i press the button on the device to turn the relay on and off "ON" and "OFF" in topic subscription but the status does not change in Indigo, only if i control it via Indigo.

Sorry new to mqtt so terminology may be a bit off.
Thanks for this plugin!

Lastly, is TLS on the roadmap on 8883?

Good news guys!

V2 is now in the plugin store (Pending approval)

Please be aware that this is a breaking change to V1, as the way I handle devices (Not created by the plugin) has changed.

Re: GreenSky MQTT Bridge Plugin (SmartThings Bridge)

That appears to be a Microsoft-specific Python library for debugging - perhaps just an artifact from development that didn't get removed?
