    homebridge-mqtt-statelessswitch

    A stateless programable switch is button that resets after pressing (think push button). HomeKit treats this accessory type like a sensor with three values; single press, double press and a long hold. Through HomeKit triggers you can link up anything from a single light switching on upon a single press, to a whole scene of actions such as dimming lights, turning down the thermostat and locking doors with a long press.

    A great example of this type of accessory in the wild is the Logitech Pop smart button: http://www.logitech.com/en-gb/product/pop-smart-button

    Installation

    sudo npm install -g homebridge-mqtt-statelessswitch

    Sample HomeBridge Configuration

    {
      "bridge": {
        "name": "HomeBridge",
        "username": "CC:33:3B:D3:CE:32",
        "port": 51826,
        "pin": "321-45-123"
      },
    
      "description": "",
    
      "accessories": [
        {
          "accessory": "mqtt-statelessswitch",
          "name": "Living Room Switch",
          "url": "mqtt://localhost",
          "topic": "home/livingroom/statelessswitch",
          "username": "username",
          "password": "password"
        }
      ],
    
      "platforms": []
    }
    

    MQTT Client

    This plugin is expecting to receive a JSON message with an eventValue attribute. The value of this attribute must be 0, 1 or 2; mapping to "Single Press", "Double Press" and "Long Press". E.g.

    {
      "eventValue": 0
    }
    

    This works great with the esp8266-mqtt-statelessbutton project to wirelessly send push button events from a simple esp8266 device to the MQTT broker (easily set up on a Raspberry Pi along with HomeBridge).
